Last month, I found out Son of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History won its second literary award. The accolade was provided by the 2012 Hollywood Book Festival in the Biography / Autobiography category. A gala was held over the weekend at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel to honor all of the book winners and finalists.
Unfortunately, I was unable to attend because of a prior commitment. My wife Laurie acted in my stead. By all accounts, she was gracious and eloquent in the acceptance of my award. Laurie doesn’t enjoy the opportunity to be a public speaker, so I really appreciate her efforts.
I’m proud of Laurie Pacheco… my soul mate and my best friend!
An iconic movie theater in Columbia, South Carolina is moving to a state-of-the-art location along its Main Street. The debut of the new Nickelodeon Theatre is set for Friday, August 31st. During its final month at the original locale, a classic film and indie movie fest will feature 33 award-winning motion pictures. This is their way of thanking patrons for their loyal support.
Among the fine cinematic treats: Sunset Boulevard (08/10); Casablanca (08/10); Annie Hall (08/11); Rear Window (08/14); Touch of Evil (08/14); Cinema Paradiso (08/16); and Lost in Translation (08/23). A so-long party will follow the double-bill of The King’s Speech and The Artist (08/26); the final screenings on old Nick’s schedule.
What a classy way to say goodbye to this audience-friendly location! Here’s a link to their website for a complete listing of movies:
Until next time> “never forget”
