Suggestions for single-screen theater documentary
I am going to be making a documentary this summer about the remaining single screen movie theaters left in Indiana still in operation (showing movies.) I was awarded a Lilly endowment for my teacher creativity proposal of $8,000.
I plan to buy a Hi-Def video camera and a laptop / software to edit the footage, and the rest of the money will be spent traveling the state to visit the theaters, interview the historians, owners & patrons. Any suggestions, contact info, etc would be greatly appreciated.
I will begin at the Devon theater in Attica, IIN (west central Indiana) go north, theneast, south and back north to Attica. I have three weeks set aside for travel, and hope to hit as many as possible. If you have any contacts or suggestions, email me with FILM QUEST in the subject line to Thanks and wish me luck!
