In case you missed it - Stan's Interview
(posted August 20, 2020)

On August 19th Stan was interviewed by Stu Shostak on his Stu's Show. If you missed it fear not, you can go to the website's archive page and for a nominal fee you can download or stream the show. You can download an audio only or a video version of the show. We'd suggest the video version because Stan and Stu showed a lot of film clips and you'll miss them if you only get the audio version.

Cinecon 56 Postponed due to Covid-19
(posted May 23, 2020)

Due to the ravages of Coronavirus and the California governorís gathering restrictions in the Los Angeles County area that will continue into the beginning of next year, we reluctantly have to postpone Cinecon 56 until Labor Day Weekend 2021.

We would like to further announce that we are planning to have some virtual programming during the time we would normally be holding our annual gathering this year (Sep 3 - Sep 7), via our website and on a Roku Television channel. Details will be announced on our website and our Facebook page as information becomes available.
