Orphans in Chelsea

The 7th Orphan Film Symposium will not be at the Library of Congress; it will be at the new superb venue in Chelsea NYC -- the School of Visual Arts Theater, 333 W. 23rd St.

Here's part of the exterior, with kinetic sculpture, designed by Milton Glaser.
Officially opening on September 16, the former Chelsea West cinema has two auditoriums. The Orphan Film Symposium will be in the 280-seater, replete with 35/16mm variable speed projection and digital projection. Installation by James Bond, Full Aperture Systems.

Thanks to film historian Gene Stavis, Director of the SVA Theater (and former American rep of Henri Langlois!), Orphans 7 has found a swell home for 2010.
