Not quite Kitchissippi, but still worth sharing!
In December I was asked to write a column for the Glebe Report newspaper on the 90th Anniversary of the Mayfair Theatre. I love the Mayfair, and have been attending regularly since I was a kid. Of course I love the vintage theatre experience; supporting a local business, the prices, and the best-in-the-city popcorn make it my favourite movie house too. So I was excited to be given this opportunity. I tried to dig up a few unknown historical facts on the theatre, and had a fun interview with co-owner Josh Stafford. I'm really happy that it ended up being the cover story for December's Glebe Report.
Just as cool is that I was contacted shortly after by the OSCAR, the newspaper for Old Ottawa South, who wanted to re-run the column. I said of course, and it too ended up on the cover!
