Just have to let everyone know that this past weekend's Cinesea film collectors meet was TERRIFIC. Great friends, food and films. Thanks to everyone who did anything to make it the best weekend ever!!

Couldn't agree more! Had a great time, met some new friends, always great to hang out with everybody. And thanks again Gary for the Murder by Death lobby cards, that was so nice of you!

It WAS a good one!

Something different this time (which of course we have absolutely no control over...) was it was actually warm.

It was kind of hard to process this: you get on the sweatshirt, you put on the parka and arctic boots, you pull on your wool hat, gloves and ski goggles (**), you fling open the hotel room door and walk 50 feet towards breakfast and all of a sudden alarms start going off in your head: "It's HOT!".

There's an opinion forming in my own family that we should spend time at the Ocean Holiday some summer.

Walking through that room all week without the big screen in place would be just plain wrong!

**This may be a SLIGHT exaggeration!

I hope to see pictures soon.

It's like fine wine, Dominique: it takes time to do it right!

I'll say this much: Claus was taking pictures all weekend, so I'm sure he has a lot of material to work with.

There will be pics....this thing called "work" has been interrupting since I came back, bit of a crunch at the moment.

Stay tuned :-)

Details to come soon....There normally is plenty of Super 8mm on the tables, however this time there was more than ever! Beetlejuice was remarkable for the Friday Night Feature and the Saturday Screening went till 1:30 AM. I'm still recovering....

I'm living proof that one can go to CineSea, buy next to nothing, and still have a wonderful time. The friendships forged through this weekend are wonderful. Quite frankly, I wouldn't know what to do if I didn't get to see my buddies. Everything was wonderful, as usual.

While we enthusiastically anticipate the pictures of CineSea 15, I'd like to announce (so I will) that the next CineSea will be held on the weekend of October 13th, 2017. Please join us!

Terrific, one superb gesture and tribute to honour one of your founders of the event.
Posted by Dominique De Bast (Member # 3798) on May 05, 2017, 01:26 AM:
Thanks for the picture, Nicole. Do you have other ones ? [Smile]
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on May 05, 2017, 09:37 AM:
Claus does have to work occasionally. His pictures and commentary are worth the wait!

The cake was wonderful, an incredibly sweet commemoration, courtesy of the Tuckeys.

Mr. Harding's pictures have been posted here. I'll close this thread so we don't have simultaneous topic distraction, known in the moderating biz as "STDs".....
