There's been a lot of turmoil at the Cinefamily at LA's famed Silent Movie Theater. The management has been accused of ignoring reports of sexual harassment. Here are a couple of articles.

How bizarre .... I never knew silent film enthusiasts to be such randy buggers.

These names are priceless. A novelist would be accused of going over the top. Hadrian Belove? Shadie .... ? You've got to peruse Ronald Firbank for names that outlandish. As Sr. Immaculata would say, "Shady by name, shady by nature ..."

PS
A good looking young actress is named, "Brie"?! Does she perhaps have a sister named, Limburger?

Brie Larson won an Oscar for her performance in Room (2015), where she plays a mother who has been kidnapped and held prisoner with her young son. She has to raise him in a single room in an outdoor shed.

Sad to hear about all this. It's a great idea, but it always seemed to be run weird. Maybe the Board can turn it around.

Sounds like a Biograph Griffith. Whatever their privations, at least they won't run out of Brie.
