The "Grand Old Lady" really is grand!, 5 March 2008
Author: filmfan-46

For a young filmmaker Brent Donaway excellently portrayed the history of this wonderful old vaudeville/film theater. It was exciting to see "behind the scenes" of this long closed building. Brent was very fair in showing both the beauty of the Westmont Theatre during its earlier days and the facade of ugliness it now has from its neglect. Despite its recent sadness, Brent offers hope for its future. His range of interviews of the local people most affected by the Westmont Theatre were both informative and poignant. Not only is the film moving for the residents of Westmont, New Jersey, but also for anyone who cares about movie houses, film history, and/or historical preservation. Kudos, Brent, I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.
