(There will be a pre-showing at City Lights Gallery on Earth Day April 22nd.)
If you want to read more about the history of the Frisbee, you can find an entire chapter in Bridgeport: Tales from the Park City by Eric D. Lehman.
Thanks to all involved for a wonderful, productive event! Thanks to Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch for launching a full day packed with dozens of great speakers and hundreds of attendees. Stay tuned for many follow-ups to all the meetings and networking that took place today...
I inquired and discovered the Austin W. Mather theatre was built back in 1980... but "beleive it or not!" closed shortly after in 1981 when the City of Bridgeport passed an ordinance mandating all public buildings required two fire emergency exits. Yes, my friends... this amazing looking tourist roadside attraction, has been boarded up for 28 years!!! Isn't that nuts? They never built a second exit, they just left it the way it was, locked the doors and threw away the key.
Would seem to be a no brainer. Anyone who has ever seen a plane release its passengers from the rear, or your average b-sci-fi UFO flick, knows exactly where the ramp needs to go, right where I'm pointing in the above photo!
