Folks have been asking where I’ve disappeared to recently. I’ve been at the Castro Theatre, which is celebrating it’s 90th birthday today. It opened on June 22, 1922. This week, it’s one of four Bay Area cinemas playing host to the 36th annual Frameline Film Festival. I’m a volunteer captain for the festival, organizing ushers and ticket takers and generally making a nuisance of myself. As soon as it’s over and I’ve recovered, perhaps I’ll have the energy to write a full report. In the meantime, here’s to one of my favorite movie palaces. Happy birthday!
