The HGLFF will be holding events open to members as well as the public in September. Screenings of the films will be for donations and pre-party events and receptions will include a cash bar, baked sweets by Marie’s Cupcakes as well as small plates from Gino and Gino.
Everyone is encouraged to dress to impress! This means you too! Dressing formal is always fun, or dressing silly is maybe even better. Play dress up with your date, or choose from the props provided by Jack Quack Photo Booth Company. YES to photobooth fun and silliness at the PreParty and reception! Make sure to arrive on time so you can book some time take fun photos to remember you evening. The photos will be available for purchase as well as on their website for 30 days after the event.
Tables are available for rent, as well as booths for merchandise. The art for the movie is quite sophisticated – both with the cinematography and the flat art with a combination of both images and custom text which collectively creates a great overall feel. If you are looking to buy or sell classic, original vintage movie posters, photographs, lobby cards and other movie memorabilia you will have ample opportunity. There will most definitely be booths offering to sell movie posters that are not only new, but also classic collectibles to all you movie aficionados. We are fortunate to also have present a well-known professional appraiser and collector of movie memorabilia, Ralph Deluca. He not only appraises, but also is an avid collector. In addition, there will also be limited edition t-shirts and hand printed scarves.
Please come help us make this event a successful evening of socializing, and enjoying food and films with your friends from the HGLFF!

Missy’s Many Faces will have a table next to the movie poster table for $5 face painting. Her work is really extraordinary and you don’t want to miss this $5 deal. She has done work for many other functions such as these and is famous for her wild cats and exotic animals. Her repertoire includes elephants, lions, cheetahs, bob cats, panthers, all kinds of dessert snakes, panda bears, and 5 kinds of antelope. She has done face-off parties as well where she will paint another person’s face over your face. It’s quite a hilariously creepy experience, perhaps she will do some of those this weekend! We sure hope so!
