THS was well represented at last Friday nite’s silent film screening at Chicago’s Portage Theatre. www.portagetheater.org   Members Andy Pierce, Beth Eckerty, Dave Syfczak and Tony Kingman were volunteering at the box-office, taking tickets and slinging popcorn.  Seen in the audience were THS’ers Cheryl Turner, Bill Reynolds, Ron Dopke, Norman Lang, and Richard Sklenar.  The theatre is run by member Dennis Wolkowicz and his associate Jay Warren usually plays the film on the theatre’s pipe organ. Dennis de-tripled the theatre and restored it. The 2012 Silent Summer Film Festival continues for the next four Fridays at 8pm at the Portage. www.silentfilmchicago.com
