Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Dave in Vermont:

y'all, if you're poking around here Will, have to come to Vermont again!
I saw you and then Jonathan several months later, After, i couldn't stop thinking about a double bill with you both. Then when i saw it was happening I was beside myself with excitement, then with disappointment.

  7:37pm JakeGould:

Great interview.
  7:40pm kevlicki:

Folks interested in Matewan should check out the West Virginia Mine Wars museum.
A good friend of mine is curating it!
Avatar 7:40pm dale:

  7:46pm JakeGould:

Have they talked about “Wendy and Lucy?” Really good film.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Dave in Vermont:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm BVP:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Dave in Vermont:

  7:53pm P-90:

Fascinating and fun. Part 2 to air next week?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Dave in Vermont:

Mr. Chibbs?
Avatar 7:56pm Devon E. Levins:

Yes part 2 next week. We will get into a lot more of his acting and film scoring in the 00s and 2010s!
  7:56pm Listener Robert:

Anybody here have an idea what a REPERTORY MOVIE THEATER is?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Corey:

Really enjoyed the show. A tonic for the craziness.
Avatar 7:57pm Devon E. Levins:

if one of us said movie it was on accident www.louisvillerep.com
  7:58pm allanToronto:

@ListenerRobert. A '2nd run' movie theatre that only screens movies that are not new, usually at low ticket prices
  7:59pm JakeGould:

@ListenerRobert: They play classic films. Like “The Film Forum.”
  7:59pm P-90:

Listener Robert: I went to film school in repertory theaters.
  8:00pm Listener Robert:

So it's either a second run house, a "classics" house, or a slip of the tongue.
  8:01pm allanToronto:

it's like musical repertoire, the existing body of composed music, but it's film instead
  8:03pm Listener Robert:

I guess the projectionist has a repertoire. Or Mr. Oldham meant "repertory theater".
  8:04pm allanToronto:

can't say really. I was addressing your question directly. and you're welcome.
