The Gem of Carlisle is a short documentary I was commissioned to make about a small town movie theatre celebrating its 80th anniversary. In the film, the Mayor and local celebrities share stories of what the theater means to them and why movie theaters are essential to a community. The Gem of Carlisle screened to a sold out audience on May 11, 2019 at the Carlisle Theatre in central Pennsylvania.
