Addio, Cinevent 42! — 2 Comments

  1. You're right, Samantha, there were more of us lingering to the bittersweet end this year, and I was pleased to see that. I've also been pleased and heartened to see, in recent years, more and more young people like you in attendance. My first Cinevent was '98, when I was [mumble]-ty- [mumble], and I think I may have been the youngest one there.

    Also, checking out your nifty Dick Powell site (keep up the good work there!), I see that we chatted briefly in the elevator to the 6th floor; hope we get a chance to meet again next year.

  2. I was surprised to see just how many people were there to the very end this year. It was nice having people to talk to on Monday, when I'm usually feeling quite lonely since most of my friends leave Sunday.

    I didn't think much of Sarong Girl, but I like that you highlighted Dancing on a Dime. It was a fun little movie, wasn't it? You can't go wrong with musicals, and I think that's why year after year, they choose to close out the show with upbeat musicals. It is a small attempt to console us at the death of another year, I guess.
