Cinema State of The Art Offering

Ground Zero. Remaining and continuing, we broadcast our Here and Now, locally, daily, hourly, while joyfully toiling and tilling this eternal field of NECESSITY.
Ours as always is the writing on the wall. Persistent, centristic cinema is forever.
It was inscribed in the ancient caves of Babylon, the pyramids of Chichen Itza, or the silver screen of the Bijou in Billings (Montana).
It revealed that singular MYSTERY, a moment of majesty—Truth, concealed in mornings of lifetimes.
Joy, sorrow, hunger, poverty, success & failure, birth, death, rebirth; the everyday emergencies of life and living, love and Light.
The impossibility of it—this task—of recording it, somehow, on the walls of our small, cellular selves.

The impossibility of it, becoming something universally grand, meaningful and lovely. And after all, MAGNIFICENT!
This mission, they say, is in creating Life itself. Even mightier than the omnipresent sword of death and destruction.
Greetings to All!
