Last night’s event at Camden County College went well. NCW members Allen Hauss, Nancy Leggoe and Brent Donaway attended and had a table setup with NCW/Westmont info. Over the course of an hour they handed out several copies of the awareness flyer, the Westmont postcard and The Grand Old Lady commemorative book. The NCW awareness video was screened to students, professors, administrators and visiting journalists/film critics throughout the event.
They spoke with several people who remember going to the Westmont to see movies when they were younger. The Exorcist, which had its South Jersey premiere at the Westmont, was a topic of conversation for a few people. They remember all the commotion about that film and how people had to taken out on stretches/wheelchairs to the EMT trucks because they got ill/fainted while watching the film.
Below is a picture of Allen and Nancy and the NCW table before the event began.
