Planning the Widescreen Weekend

Gillian Reid has replaced Jeni Hall as coordinator of reservations for this year's weekend. Jeni is no longer with the museum but is nevertheless expected to show up in the audience of one or two screenings.  
Three nice ladies behind the ticket desk.
Lots of delegate's packages ready to be handed out.
The most interesting item in the delegate's package was probably this envelope...
...which revealed a three strip clip from the new Cinerama film "In the Picture".

Bill Lawrence in conversation with Randy Gitsch and Dave Strohmaier.
Duncan McGregor welcoming the audience.

Professor Sir Christopher Frayling introducing "The Longest Day".
Parts of the Swedish delegation.  
Sheldon Hall introducing "The Great Escape".

Sheldon Hall introducing "The Great Escape".

An interesting part of his introduction were two songs; first a "rock video" of the Longest Day theme sung in French by Dalida,
then the Great Escape March with the really strange original lyrics performed by Mitch Miller and the Gang.

Bill Lawrence welcoming the audience, and bringing messages from some noteworthy regulars who were unable to attend this year. He also notes that projectionist Tony Cutts has recovered from illness, and will enjoy "The Sound of Music" as a member of the audience, rather than running the projectors.
Wolfram Hanneman introducing "The Sound of Music". The film was very popular all over the world, in fact so popular in Korea that one cinema owner found an original way to squeeze in more performances in a day. He simply cut out all the songs...
And it's goodnight for Day 1...
