Movie Premiere in Georgetown - March 25, 2006
The street was lined with cheering people. Vintage cars pulled up with "movie stars" while photographers took pictures for newspapers and television. Cameras flashed as the honored guests walked the red carpet to see the restored print of "Pied Piper Malone" which had not been seen in Georgetown since 1924.

As the authors of this web site, we want to express our deep appreciation to the warm and generous people of Georgetown, South Carolina, who inspired, planned, and presented this most extraordinary movie theatre event.

Especially, we want to acknowledge the efforts of Pat Doyle, Debby Summey, Marty Tennant, Boris Bohun-Chudyniv, and Beverly Noble. Working with them on this project was pure joy.

The souvenir program provided by the Georgetown County Historical Society also acknowledged the efforts and contributions of Pat Schooler, Lucille Altman, Paul Skoko, Diane Kludt, Foye Ford, Ruth O. Bell, Leslie Price, and the Winyah Crusiers Car Club which provided the vintage cars. The reception at the home of Sallie and Tom Gillespie was the perfect ending for this unforgettable event.

One very special "Thank You" from us goes to Logan Young who researched the period music and performed "live" in the most noble tradition of the movies. His accompanyment brought the film to life.

Thanks for the Movie Memories

Strand Theatre - Georgetown, SC
