New “Preserve Me a Seat” movie review

posted by jim on August 10, 2006 at 6:04 am

Although the 3 city world premiere of the new documentary, “Preserve Me a Seat” is almost 2 weeks old, this new review appeared yesterday.

“Preserve Me a Seat” is an independently made documentary about the ongoing struggle to protect and preserve historic movie theatres across the United States and features the efforts to preserve The Indian Hills Cinerama Theatre in Omaha, Nebraska, The Villa Theatre in Salt Lake City, The DuPage Theatre in Lombard, Illinois, and The Gaiety Theatre in Boston, MA.

Other theaters featured in the film are the former Michigan Theatre in Detroit, and the beautifully restored Missouri Theatre in St. Joseph, Missouri.

The documentary is currently playing in film festivals across the country – the Estes Park Film Festival is the next scheduled public showing on September 15th, 2006 – but is also available on dvd for only $12.99+shipping at:

A good friend of mine will be ordering your DVD soon, Jim. Assume you’ve been run ragged and pretty busy these days, so I just wanted to let you know I’d left you a pair of leads for booking and festivals on your original “PMS” Radio Documentary news post late last month. Hope this helps some. Good luck!

Hey, how about adding this film to so more people may discover it?

Creepy has a top-notch suggestion, Jim. I just viewed “Dark Days,” an obscure documentary by first-time director Marc Singer, and it’s on imdb with several excellent and positive reviews. (It even won two awards at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival. Perhaps you’re next…)
