UPCOMING CHANGES AT THE CREST THEATRE
Dear Friends of the Sacramento French Film Festival,
As you may have heard by now, CSLM Incorporated, operator of the Crest Theatre for the past 28 years, has lost its lease on the theatre. CSLM will leave the Crest at the end of October, the owner of the building and his fiancée have announced that they will then start operating the theatre themselves. It is with great sadness that we must say goodbye to Sid Heberger and her amazing team. They made the Crest what it is today: a cultural landmark in Sacramento, a thriving and magical place to watch movies, and see all kinds of live shows.
This abrupt change of management is not only very sad, but it is also concerning as we are losing CSLM's expertise, professionalism, and enthusiasm, which have been invaluable to us over the years, and at this time, the future of the SFFF at the Crest is still unsure. We have begun discussions with the new Crest operator and we hope to have the venue for our 2015 edition settled very soon. In the meantime, we will celebrate one more time with our Crest family on October 19, while hoping it won't be the last.
The SFFF Team
