Tonight, Mar. 30: Memphis and the Movies with Linn Sitler
TONIGHT- Don't miss the last in Memphis Heritage's "Memphis and the Movies" March series. Film Commissioner Linn Sitler's recap will take the audience through highlights of the Commission's decades-long history, ending with "Mystery Train" and then she'll introduce the audience to Tamara Trexler, the great-granddaughter of Memphis' infamous film censor Lloyd Binford. She'll be appearing "live" from Nashville via Skype. Before the Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commission, Memphis was famous not for its films, but for having some of the most conservative censorship rules in the country.
