Big hugs and kisses to everyone who helped celebrate my 34th on Saturday. I feel very loved, and totally spoiled. You folks are The Business!
Extra-large servings of thank-you with sprinkles on top going out to:
Joffa – for setting up projection and sound for backyard cinerama, and making all the ice-cream
Kymbo and Giz – for the popcorn popper and lolly bag memories
Squid – the token four-footed guest, for eating all our dropped ice-cream
The nice lady at Readings Carlton – for holding the last copy of A Hard Day’s Night for me
Melbourne weather – for not raining on the proceedings
Those of you who couldn’t make it, don’t fret. We have big plans to keep screenings happening on a semi-regular basis, and will run loungeroom cinerama when it’s too cold outside. If you want to join the contact list for updates, or suggest films, leave me a comment. We didn’t get round to showing The Italian Job (1969), so this will be on-screen soonish.
For all you magazine buffs out there, today’s pics come from my growing pile of Australian House And Garden. Party with Villaboard from September 1971, and The Festive Look from December 1969.
