Charlie Chaplin program in Burns Film Ctr calendar
Here's the 2-page spread for Kids/Family film programs at the Jacob Burns Film Center, from their Nov/Dec printed calendar. My parents gave me their copy (since the Burns Center didn't send me one). The photo of me was taken when I was up at the JBFC in September to play for a few Fritz Lang silents. Not a bad photo, plus I look thin! (Hope to show you ever better shot of me at an organ console that my friend Steve Friedman took, sometime soon...) Circling in pen of my name courtesy of my parents.
