From the release:
Spend an evening with movie critic and author Irv Slifkin as he takes a tour of the Delaware Valley through film clips and discussion about the movies that were made in the area and the locations that were used. This highly entertaining and informative program also delves into the people from the area who contributed to the film industry from its earliest days to contemporary times. Special attention is paid to the Jewish contributors to Philly’s film heritage. Earlier versions of this program have been standing room-only hits at libraries and movie theaters in the area, but this is a new version of the presentation where Irv will reveal unknown and unusual facets of the area’s movie heritage and prove: There is more to Filmadelphia than “Rocky” or “Trading Places.” He will be signing copies of his book Filmadelphia: A Celebration of a City’s Movies at the event.
Saturday, December 3 · 7:00pm – 10:00pm
Temple Judea of Bucks County
300 E. Swamp Rd.
See you there!
