Slap: I am stunned and so, so grateful. Have your distributor tell their drivers that we live in the theatre and to pound on the front doors when they get here if they don't see anyone. We have converted the old balcony (now enclosed)in to a bedroom (complete with sloped floor). Try that getting up in the middle of the night to go downstairs to pee. FWIW we serve Pepsi products.

Slap: Everything has arrived. Again, thank you so much and may God remember your kindness. Did you get my private message?

I believe I will be doing a Robin Williams tribute with "Mrs. Doubtfire".

Oops! My bad Slap. I need to learn to read a calendar. This is the holiday weekend and I'm running my summer classic series with Elizabeth Taylor and Van Johnson in "The Last Time I saw Paris" plus Fred Astaire and Jane Powell in "Royal Wedding" (it's a double bill). The Robin Williams tribute comes up in a week or two depending on how this program goes.

So Bob are you pretty much closed now? Your phone recording says you are closed except for private shows.

I have turned the operation of the theatre over to my son who has some different ideas for how it should be operated. He wants to offer it for private showings, parties, film clubs and other rentals. We already have a church renting the main auditorium each Sunday. This "Old Showman" has run out of money to continue operation as a public movie theatre.

No shame in admitting defeat. Not every theater can be saved.

You're right Andrew. It isn't an easy thing to do and I don't believe I'm done with the business yet. Perhaps somewhere someone can use an "Old Showman" manager. I love this business and believe it has great potential for doing a community good.

What are your plans in the interim? Staying in Oklahoma? Moving back to the northwest?

We will stay in Oklahoma. I will assist my son when he needs a projectionist but basically I'll just be retired.
