annsblyth posted a topic in Information, Please!Hi! I'm in the process of recruiting new members for a TCM Backlot Chapter for the Tampa/Saint Petersburg, FL area. I hope to step up as president if we get enough members, but I'm wondering if there's anything that I should know about forming a chapter in addition to what's on this page. I've read it thoroughly, but it doesn't answer some of my questions. Is there a list of rules for how to organize or run a chapter that I should know about? Specifically, I was also wondering if it would be allowed or appropriate to host events or screenings in my home for the chapter. There are few classic film related events in the area, and I have a copy of TCM Scene It? as well as a decent DVD collection that I thought would be fun to bring out in between screenings of the Big Screen Classics. It's also a hobby of mine to cook personal recipes of classic movie stars, so maybe I'd host a themed dinner as well? These are just a few ideas that I'm thinking of doing for the group, but I want to make sure that I'm not breaking any rules. Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
A friend of mine is preparing a book which features photos of old movie posters and lobby cards. She claims that film posters printed prior to 1964 are no longer copyrighted, and therefore the images can be used in a book without permission. This doesn't sound right to me, but I can't find any information to either confirm or deny her claim. Does anyone in the TCM universe know the answer? Thanks very much
