    Interest in Cinti Backlot!

    Hello! Today, July 21st, 2019, we had 5 folks at the TCM Fathom Event showing of Glory! It was a very moving & sobering film. This was our first official Cincinnati Backlot meeting as a group! With the very busy summer activities, vacations, and heat, we had a low turn-out & 3 last minute cancellations. We began with introductions & by hearing trivia/info for the movie, Glory, then after watching the film, we all disclosed our most enjoyable movie genres & possible favorite films. Bill chose Stagecoach from 1939 with John Wayne, his wife Robyn loves the classic Casablanca, Ron spoke of seeing King Kong as a child, with nightmares to follow, Carole loves the fun & over-the-top Rosalind Russell in Auntie Mame, & mine is To Kill a Mockingbird, with a moral victory seen thru' a child's eyes & inseparable music by Elmer Bernstein. Next I then discussed all of the Backlot advantages to be experienced & reviewed the online contests & discounts available to Backlot Members. Finally, we took a group photo which I'm forwarding to Backlot, & made plans for the up & coming TCM Fathom Events at our home theater at Oakley Station. A Great first gathering! Thanks to all who attended! Why not join us?! Melanie Cinti Backlot President

    Atlanta TCM Backlot Chapter

    Hi TCMBacklotATL We are almost there with 5 Backlot members to get our Cincinnati Chapter going. Do you guys have any advice for a first gathering or meeting to help us get the ball rolling? I have posted on the Cinti-Northern Kentucky Backlot Message Board about Fathom Events, like To Kill a Mockingbird & Ben Hur. Made suggestions to meet following the movie to discuss & organize potential members. I did gather several folks following Mockingbird in the movie lobby, collected emails & one fellow joined Backlot. Some folks even wrote down their favorite movie, so we know that there is interest! Saw your Atlanta Chapter on TCM on TV! Looks like you have a big group! Any ideas from you would be helpful, thanks, Melanie
