Bits and Pieces

Happy New Year!  I’ve been a bad, bad blogger…

It might seem like we’re not doing much here in the Memphis Room, but the truth is we’ve been doing too much!  We’ll have other updates soon, but first a few things we need to catch up on:

Memphis Movie Theatres

 

Many congratulations to our volunteer Vincent Astor on his new book.  Nobody knows more about Memphis theaters than Vincent.  Pick up a copy – it’s available everywhere!
