The Homecoming – celebrating 40 years

There will be a Walton Family Reunion celebrating the 40th anniversary of The Homecoming. This very special night will be held on Friday December 2nd, 2011. Several of the cast members will be at this reunion, which will be held at the Landmark Loews Jersey Theater, in Jersey City, NJ.

A special screening of The Homecoming will take place, along with guests: Richard Thomas, Judy Norton, Mary McDonough, David Harper, Jon Walmsley, Kami Cotler, Eric Scott and Michael Learned. The site is advertising a Q & A panel discussion after the screening of the film.

More information can be found at the Theater website, and also at this website from Monday.

It sounds like a really fun night. I love old theaters and would adore visiting this one. I did consider whether I would be able to manage to head over there for the weekend, but with only one more week of school left by then, here in Australia, I guess I’d better just wait for another opportunity.
