Wayne:

Spoke to Dane Rhodes. He cannot see us Sat, because he is also doing shows at True Brew and at Southern Rep.

The owner at Chalmette Cinema is named Ellis. Local musician, singer Grayson Capps, is featured in the movie, and in fact, I think it's his story. He was supposed to appear at Chalmette the opening weekend (couple weeks ago) and may be willing to return. Ask Ellis about getting him again.

Dane added, for future flicks, that Canal Place has a digital projector - meaning they can lease out that space for a reasonable fee, and we can show any DVD on the big screen.

Celebrate Louisiana’s First Proclamation on

Film and Video Industry Awareness Month

For the State of Louisiana

When: Saturday, March 26th, 6:15 P.M.

What: Talks by those involved in the local film industry, including the author of the Proclamation Gary Michael Smith. Following the talks will be a viewing of the Louisiana-made film A Love Song for Bobby Long at 7 P.M.

Where: Chalmette Cinema, 8700 West Judge Perez Drive, Chalmette, LA 70043-1804, 504-277-9766

Why: To show our appreciation for those involved in our local film industry, from the hundreds of extras who have found gainful employment; to the casting companies who have provided such employment; to the technical and trade workers with Local 478; and to the producers, directors, and production companies who have “discovered” Louisiana.

About the Film: Starring: John Travolta, Scarlett Johansson, Gabriel Macht, Deborah Kara Unger, Dane Rhodes

Upon hearing of her mother’s death, jaded teenage loner Purslane Hominy Will returns to New Orleans for the first time in years, ready to reclaim her childhood home. Expecting to find her late mother’s house abandoned, Pursy is shocked to discover that it is inhabited by two of her mother’s friends: Bobby Long, a former literature professor, and his young protégé, Lawson Pines. These broken men, whose lives took a wrong turn years before, have been firmly rooted in the dilapidated house for years, encouraged only by Lawson’s faltering ambitions to write a novel about Bobby Long’s life. Having no intention of leaving, Pursy, Bobby Long, and Lawson are all forced to live together. Yet as time passes, their tenuous, makeshift arrangement unearths a series of buried personal secrets that challenges their bonds and reveals just how inextricably their lives are intertwined.
