I had the pleasure of shooting The Historic Artcraft Theatre's annual Sponsorship Party, themed, "Casa Blanca," in Franklin, Ind., on Saturday, March 16, 2013. The party featured guests in 1940's attire and the reveal of the 2013 summer movie series. I couldn't resist photographing Alena Van Arendonk with a Lensbaby as she posed for a picture taken by her date.
The Artcraft is almost 100 years old and only shows movies on film, nothing digital. I remember watching Jurassic Park, City Slickers and many other great films there as a kid. I love this place and am so thankful Franklin Heritage Inc. has been able to keep it going. The summer movies look great! O Brother Where Art Thou, Ghostbusters, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jaws, Annie, Casablanca, and many more. They're even showing A Christmas Story, Elf and Christmas Vacation in December.
I put the fancy glass away for the real journalism part though, keep clicking to see what I shot for the Star.
