Mad Men Directors Need to See This!!

We have a wonderful independent movie theatre in Tulsa.
It is the Circle Cinema.
This small theatre brings big stuff to Tulsa.
My family has met one of the subjects
from the movie, Lost Boys of Sudan.
The boy of the cover is the one we got to meet.
I still tear up thinking how that man gave up
so much to become so much for his
country.
We live in a country of selfishness.
If we are given the chance to be a professional
soccer player or a doctor....which do you think
most Americans will do?
I believe most will go for the BIG BUCKS and NOTORIETY
and be the professional soccer player.
I highly suggest you get this movie, it will change your life.

We also got to meet 2 Holocaust survivors.
I cried when I met them after seeing the movie.
I can honestly say that 2 of the top 10 experiences
in my life happened at the Circle Cinema.

The theatre is trying to expand and make a state of
the art theatre for the community to enjoy.
It is my understanding that they
are also having the original silent movie
organ restored.

To help with the fundraising efforts, they
had a special event.
They hosted a vintage fashion show through
the decades from the 20s thru the 2000s.

After the fashion show which included
awesome food from local
restaurants, each guest
was invited to a special
screening of
Vidal Sassoon, The Movie.

I was asked to take the pictures for
the event.....I tried to act
cool....but I think I might have s'queed!
Vintage + Photography = EXCITEMENT!!!

The models were awesome and looked
as if each one was meant for that
specific era!

He is not a model...he is a worker...but
doesn't he look AMAZING?

Most of the clothes were supplied
by a local store, Silver Screen Vintage.
This is Sheila, the owner of the shop.

Here are some of her outfits and some of the models.


This girl should be packaged and sold she
was that CUTE in a 1920s swimsuit!!!

I like the paradox of this photo.
1950s classic woman and a TATTOO.

I had a wonderful time at this event.
I hope that this encourages you to seek
out independent places and support them.
Small business America has to make
a come back!
Share some special places in your community with me in the
comments!!!
