Rummage Sale & Casual Encounters

As a local hot spot for film- and video-related projects, the Forum also becomes the de facto collection site of filmmaking gear, promotional posters, etc. - a veritable "Katamari Damacy" of cool stuff! Come browse our rummage sale, meet the film community, sweat to the oldies in our theater (you heard right: all-day workout!), and enjoy our drink specials. At the end of the day, you could walk away with a piece of local film history!
