Peter Voth and the DC Independent Film Festival are joining forces for a series, “Going to the Movies”, on October 28th, with an event honoring the MacArthur Theater. The event, called “Remembering the MacArthur Theater and Neighborhood Movie-Going”, will be held at the Community Church of the Palisades (5200 Cathedral Ave NW, Washington, DC 20016) and will feature a talk by local historian Dr. Robert Headley, author of Motion Picture Exhibition in Washington, DC, about the MacArthur and other area theaters and will also provide an opportunity for area residents to contribute their own memories to the official oral history of the project. They hope to plan subsequent events honoring other theaters in the city. more
