It's not been announced, but I'll be coming up to Boston on Thursday for our final Museum of Fine Arts screening. It's my way of saying thanks to everyone who supported the film so fervently over the past 8 months. The remarkable Beantown run has been a wonderful if somewhat confusing experience for this lifelong Yankees fan.
My special thanks go to Bo Smith, head of the MFA film program, who predicted shortly after our premiere in Toronto that 51 Birch Street would play the MFA for a year (you were way off, Bo!); to Sara Rubin, the tireless director of the Boston Jewish Film Festival, who did such a great job of getting word out about the film; and to Gail Reimer and the Jewish Women's Archive, who originally sponsored our Boston JFF screening and have been such enthusiastic supporters.
Sorry for being so absent from the blog here for the past 5 or 6 weeks. I have a couple of exciting excuses, which I'll elaborate on shortly. Stay tuned.
And thanks again, Boston. You've managed to take the sting out of running away with the division. Well, somewhat.
