THS member Tim Wagner at the George Eastman House in Rochester, NY (which we visited during our 1999 Conclave during which he was a volunteer) tells us that they are going to be doing a film series of movies with movie theatres shown. He wonders if other THS members might be able to help compile a list. To encourage you we’ll have a little contest, as suggested by our Publications Director Ken Bloom who already has submitted two film names. The member who sends the most movie titles will win a 2012 THS Conclave DVD as soon as it is ready. Submit your list by Wednesday August 15 to Richard Sklenar at THS HQ via email@example.com We’ll pass the total list on to Tim and keep a file in the Archives.

Conclave Theatre Tour 2013
Every summer THS picks one of America’s great theatre regions for our week-long summer tour. Attendees are treated to exclusive tours of theatres and unprecedented behind-the-scenes access.
This summer, we’ll explore the Greater New York Capital Region and Berkshires — both exciting and under-explored areas, rich in theater history and a perfect summer destination.
• Schenectady • Albany • Troy • Cohoes • Rome
• Utica • Gloversville • Chatham • Poughkeepsie
• North Adams • Pittsfield • Great Barrington
• Waterbury • Thomaston • Torrington
Theatre stops include emerging projects in their first flush of rebirth, to a fully restored Art Deco movie palace and more.
