Which film is "The 1964 World's Fair"? Is that a new compilation?

I was assuming they were talking about the Judd Hirsch-hosted one from quite a few years back. Though, if it's something new that would be even cooler.

Hi,

Oooh.....will Mr. Mauro divulge the results of his research into Grover Whalen's father's first marriage, or if his brother was actor Michael Whalen? Or the "illegitimate daughter" of Grover's? Think I will pass on this particular one. I would much rather hear John R. or H.H. speak. I assume John's GM materials and more will be on display - and those things are something to see!!!!!

Board Administrator note: moved this topic to the Events forum to align it to the target audience. (some people might log on only to check Events to see what they can attend.) This is indeed an event that can be attended.

Hi Randy,

Considering they are apparently charging $10 for the lecture over the $9 admission and selling lunch for another $10 - perhaps this and it partner thread should be in Commercial Events?


Best wishes,
Eric
