The complimentary reception begins at 3:00 and guests will enjoy wine, beer and passed hors d'oeuvres. The screening of short films begins at 4:00, followed by a panel discussion. Our distinguished panel includes Josh Gilder, former speech writer for President Ronald Reagan, Karen Moreau, President of the Foundation for Land and Liberty, Nicholas Tucker, director/producer for Passing Lane Films and Nicole Ciandella Screenwriter of I, Pencil and Media Coordinator for CEI. Drew Tidwell, President of Passing Lane Films, and Production Coordinator on I Am Legend, Eagle Eye and United 93 will moderate the event.

We hope you will join us Wednesday, August 29th from 3-6pm for The Grand Old Picture Show, a screening of films illustrating the value of individual liberty and property rights.

Do you know who the advertised panellist are?
Seems to me that it would not be unheard of
for a 99er type bunch to liquor up a crowd
to blame for mayhem and take headlines
away from convention ???

I don't have the foggiest who the panelists fact the entire day's program seem to be filled up with nobodies and nothing-type doings of much interest sponsored by a group no one has ever heard of. Something free I wouldn't go to if I were paid.

In fact it sounds like one of those liberal white wine soirees held at art galleries in NYC if you get my drift. Maybe it's a lib RINO event. It's not only the Dims who will be up to all kinds of tricks around the city during the convention.
