Golden State Film Festival, March 20-29, 2009

Elephant Seal Pups were there to greet us as we arrived in Monterey for the Golden State Film Festival. (They're laying on the end of this rock looking a lot like a character from Love and Roadkill.) 

The Golden State is a 1927 movie palace complete with moorish designs and pipe organ, beautifully and lovingly restored by owner/projectionist Warren Dewey.  A great place to view a movie! After L&RK screened I spoke to the 1000-seat auditorium (blinding lights kept me from knowing how many of those seats were full) then had the pleasure of introducing the main feature, James Ivory's "Shakespeare Wallah."
