Old Fashioned Saturday Movies

Our volunteer appreciation event was held this afternoon. We were greeted by Charlie Chaplins at the door, given pop and popcorn, and escorted to our seats.
The significance of having the event in the Legion was pointed out. The building was the original theatre in Cut Knife (1913) and was moved to the present site in the 1950's when the new theatre was built. Several people related that they remembered going to the theatre in the building.
Several short clips of comics, "Who's On First?", and other comedic short films were shown. Good clean entertainment.
Marcy Holden, the Volunteer Coordinator, related all that the museum volunteers have accomplished in the past year. Thank you everyone.
And, thanks to Marcy and Noreen for planning the day's events. It was a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
