Do you have a great memory of seeing movies at the Rialto? Are you free between 9:00AM and noon today? If so, swing by the SoPas Gallery and allow me to videotape a short, informal interview with you! I am collecting stories for possible use in my Patch column as well as inclusion in a longer film project to raise awareness about our beloved theater.
The Chamber of Commerce has been kind enough to lend me the use of their gallery space this morning for fellow fans of the Rialto to reminisce and trade stories while I wield my video camera. You don't have to have wild Rialto tales to tell -- although those are definitely welcome --just your memories of this wonderful movie palace and a shared hope for its return.
If you have a few minutes to spare this morning, come by SoPas Gallery at 1121 Mission Street (adjacent to the Chamber of Commerce offices) from 9am until noon. And if you are interested in adding your story to the project but can't make it today, email me. (My email link is on the right side of this blog.)
