Next week we will be meeting on Thursday night for a film at The Southside Film Festival.

Allentown: From The Ground Up will be attending the documentary, "The Town That Was," at the SouthSide Film Festival

We invite everyone to come out and watch the film with us.

We will meet at 7:00p.m outside the Whitaker Lab. The film starts at 7:30 and the admission price is 5 dollars.

Here is the film synopsis taken from the SouthSide Film Festival Website:

"In 1962, a trash fire ignited a seam of anthracite coal beneath Centralia,
Pennsylvania, a once-thriving mining town of over 3,000 people. By the
mid-1980s, giant plumes of smoke and deadly carbon monoxide gases billowed
from fissures in the ground, the local highway cracked and collapsed, trees
were bleached white and petrified, as the fire continued to rage unchecked.
It wasn't until a young boy nearly died after falling into a smoldering mine
subsidence that the government was pressed into action. After estimating the
cost of extinguishing the fire at over half a billion dollars, the government instead opted to raze the town and relocate its residents. Today, 11 die-hards remain.
Filmed over a period of four years with interviews ranging from former
residents to Congressmen, The Town That Was is an intimate portrait of John
Lokitis, the youngest remaining Centralian, and his quixotic fight to keep
alive a hometown that has literally disintegrated under his feet. His
unbowed determination and steadfast refusal to acknowledge defeat reveal a
man, a town, a region, and a way of life abandoned and forgotten."

The film will be played in the Whitaker Lab. Directions can be found at:

  1. Hey did you guys go to the event on Saturday? I caught a few of the bands - I was with my monkey family, and we had a ball. Too bad about the rain, though - what a total bummer. Oh well, Allentown tried! It was fun for those of us unafraid of a few raindrops.
