SLO cinema opinions

March 1, 2010

This is a slideshow I made from snippets of interviews I did in the past. The clips feature Cal Poly Club of Independent Film-makers president Griffin Davis, SLO Art Center assistant director Muara Johnston and Palm Theater owner Jim Dee.

Hollywood Cinema: A blog about movies

She does not write exclusively about cinema in San Luis Obispo, but she recently posted a nice explanation of the Fremont Theater. As she has covered a few grounds I haven’t touched upon yet, for those interested, it will definitely give you some additional information.
