The Palace: Reviving A Historic Treasure

user
  One of the main venues for the Connecticut Film Festival, which opens tomorrow evening, is the Palace Theater on Main Street in Danbury, a once prosperous town 50 miles north of New York City. From the theater's simple facade and faded charm, it is hard to imagine that this was one of the important theaters in the Northeast, where headliners and musical legends once entertained Danbury's upper crust. The historic theater, originally built in 1928 when Danbury was a wealthy town, h...

2010 Connecticut Film Festival: Mapping North By Northeast

  The 2010 Connecticut Film Festival, which launches on Tuesday in the historic city of Danbury, Connecticut about 50 miles north of New York City, could very well be given the moniker "North By Northeast". This is not a geographic description nor a play on words of a classic Hitchcock thriller. It is, in fact, a nod to the multi-media event known as South By Southwest (SXSW), which takes place in edgy Austin, Texas each February. The Connecticut Fi...

AIFF 2010: The Ashland Experience

user
People love Ashland. Ashland, Oregon appears, at first glance, to be a quintessential small American town.  It has a population of about twenty thousand and a compact, walkable downtown where the closest thing to a skyscraper is the Ashland Springs Hotel - once the tallest building between, depending on who you ask, either Sacramento and Eugene or San Francisco and Portland - which towers over the Main Street “skyline” but never reaches double-digit storeys. Within a few blocks from...
