Dodging the digital bullet The way you watch movies has changed, and you probably haven’t even noticed. For more than 100 years film has been synonymous with motion pictures. But if you see a new movie in a big-screen chain theater today, what you’re seeing is likely being projected digitally, the information embedded in a hard drive and beamed on to the screen by a very expensive, very complicated piece of equipment. The shift to digital has its perks. But the major reason why movie theaters are switching — being forced, some say — to digital projection comes down
to money. Most of the major theater chains have already embraced the switch to digital projectors. But given that the formats require totally new machines, which can cost anywhere from $60,000 to $150,000 per screen, that leaves smaller independent cinemas with a real financial burden. In Rochester, The Little, Dryden Theatre, and The Cinema are all in the process of making the leap to digital. But even as they prepare for this major shift, area film professionals debate digital’s impact on artistry, archiving, and business.

Let MCC move the Damon Center
I am the Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of the College at Mount Holyoke College, and I would not be where I am today were it not for Monroe Community College. During a recent visit to Rochester for my induction into the MCC Alumni Hall of Fame, I learned the exciting news about the college’s effort to relocate its downtown campus. This relocation – finally a campus students can call their own –is encouraging news and long overdue! I began my college education as a nontraditional student at MCC’s Damon City Campus in the mid-1990s. In addition to needing a college experience that taught me how to be a college student, I needed access to an institution that was in the downtown area and that would allow me to continue working full time. MCC was the right choice and taking classes at Damon was the best decision I could have made. In my role at Mount Holyoke, I oversee everything related to student life on campus. I have seen first-hand the impact of quality services, facilities, and environments on student learning. I have learned that the institutions that commit the necessary time, energy, and resources to creating an exceptional college experience do the best job of inspiring student success and preparing our future leaders. By developing this new campus and expanding programs and services, MCC will be creating the kind of environment and experience that will serve students and City
the community for many years to come. As I thought about my recent visit, the honor that was bestowed upon me, and my time as a student at MCC, it struck me that a new downtown campus can only enhance the college’s role in the community. As an institution of opportunity, MCC helps people, like me, change their lives, and this strengthens all of Greater Rochester. That is exactly the kind of place we want our family members to begin their college education. That is exactly the kind of place we want as a launching pad for all careers. It is my sincere hope that the people and leaders of Monroe County will see the same opportunity I see and do all they can to support MCC. Let us work together to create a downtown campus that students and the city deserve. CERRI A. BANKS, SOUTH HADLEY, MASSACHUSETTS
The RPO conflict
I would like to take issue with some of the assertions made in your opinion piece “Let Remmereit Go” (December 5). There were many problems and significant staff turnover prior to Arild’s arrival. The consultant hired by the RPO, in fact, held all three parties responsible: the music director, the CEO, and the board of directors. There were specific recommendations for each of these players. Ms Rice in her statement implies that only the music director was asked to address issues, and that he has failed and hence he is being fired. That is patently untrue. I know this, because I was on the board of the RPO and resigned in October in protest regarding the manner in which the board meetings and activities were being conducted. KISHAN PANDYA
Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com
DECEMBER 12-18, 2012
Although Mary Anna Towler says that she has talked with people on both sides of the controversy, her article provides not one scrap of new information to support the conclusion that firing the conductor was “the only thing” the RPO board “could do.” Whatever new insight she may have gleaned from her conversations, she has chosen to withhold from her readers. Does Towler agree with RPO chairperson Elizabeth Rice (in her WXXI radio interview) that the “general public does not need to know” what went on “behind the scenes” that led to the board’s decision? Some journalism! Towler also writes that Remmereit’s supporters “seem to have heard only one side of this conflict.” Actually, so far the RPO’s audience has very little solid information to go on from either side regarding the roots and progression of the conflict to its truly awful outcome. Remmereit, through his lawyer, claims that the RPO’s management treated him in a “demeaning” and “dismissive” manner that created a “hostile work environment,” but what did this actually involve? On the other side, the board’s statements focus on a process by which it says it attempted to resolve conflicts that remain largely unspecified. In this environment of very limited reliable information, it is easy to jump to conclusions that may be ill founded. But as of now, the board has not made a convincing public case for a decision that will deprive the RPO and its audience of an excellent conductor who, in his brief time here, has brought much new vitality to Rochester’s classical music scene. Remmereit did not arrive here with a reputation as an arrogant prima donna who is impossible to work with, and it is hard to imagine how he turned into one over the last year, while at the same time winning over much of the public and leading such fine performances. If there is any chance of saving Remmereit for Roch-
ester, concerned citizens need to act now, not just passively accept the board’s statements or Towler’s equally vague assurances that “the board did the right thing.” This is why over 900 people (and counting) have signed the online petition protesting Remmereit’s dismissal and calling for reconsideration of a decision that carries such severe financial and cultural costs. WAYNE WILLIS, ROCHESTER
Mary Anna Towler’s response: I didn’t withhold anything from readers. I wrote what I knew – including that people on both sides of this issue, with the same information, have reached different conclusions. (See former board member Kishan Pandya’s comment above.) In Mary Anna Towler’s recent editorial favoring Arild Remmereit’s contract termination, my attention was drawn to her statement: “The board has tried for more than a year to set things right. Initially, board leaders tried to remedy the situation themselves. But, they say, the problem grew worse….” Having this information, one might logically wonder who to blame for the failure. It is known that the leadership, a significant time before the crisis became public, blamed Remmereit. However, isn’t it also possible that they reacted to the developing crisis ineptly and lost control of a situation that might very well have been handled more effectively by others? Unless the RPO leadership is infallible (which can fairly be ruled out), might it not be possible to conclude that it is they who should be fired rather than the RPO’s Music Director? DAVID PERLMAN, BRIGHTON
Until Remmereit, the best RPO conductor was Erich Leinsdorf, who conducted here in the 1940’s. Under Leinsdorf, the RPO was electrifying, better than most big-city orchestras. The RPO couldn’t keep Leinsdorf, any more than
the Red Wings could keep Stan Musial. Leinsdorf went on to a brilliant career, ending as conductor of the Boston Symphony. Remmereit is better than Leinsdorf, and today’s RPO is better than the 1940’s RPO. Remmereit is also much better in the community than Leinsdorf. The problem seems to be money. There’s a ton of talent in this town, and there must be a hot-shot marketing guy who can market Remmereit and the RPO well enough to make ends meet. Recordings, increased ticket prices, whatever. There’s got to be a way. We’ll never again have a talent like Remmereit. Hey, he could be better than Stan Musial! JOHN LUDINGTON, WEBSTER
It was the right decision. Period. It’s easy for folks to liken the situation here to Minnesota, Atlanta, Chicago, and other orchestras around the country. But the fact of the matter is, this situation couldn’t be more different. This is not about management putting the kibosh on great art. Ticket sales were down, musicians and staff were hurting, and some musicians have even expressed online that they did not enjoy Remmereit’s programming – it didn’t challenge them, and it wasn’t enjoyable to play. The orchestra is about the musicians, and Remmereit’s army seems to have no regard for that. Remmereit and Owens could have worked out individual differences. However, the RPO’s statement makes it clear that Remmereit caused tensions with people across the organization. This includes musicians and staff members – the piss-poor folks who are being paid absolutely nothing yet have still devoted their lives to the RPO. If the decision truly took years to make, it’s clear that the wounds were deep and not fixable. It’s time to move on. TORI

Fee faux outrage Let me say a word in support of Maggie Brooks. I didn’t vote for her for Congress or for county executive, and this newspaper didn’t endorse her for either one. But I’ve been amused at Monroe County Democrats’ piling on about her latest budget and the fees snuggled away inside it. By the time you read this, the Republican-dominated County Legislature will probably have approved the budget. Once again, Brooks isn’t raising the property-tax rate. But she is increasing some fees: the “chargebacks” that help finance Monroe Community College, for instance. And she’s charging suburbanites a fee for snowplowing. The Dems hooted, insisting that the fees are really taxes by another name. Sure they are. But the Dems’ outrage seems a bit faux to me. It isn’t Brooks’ fault that she resorts to this sleight of hand. She’s been forced into it – by all of us taxpayers. And I’d bet that the Dems would do the same thing if they were in charge. Politicians at every level of government are scared witless to raise taxes. So as expenses go up – for many legitimate reasons – politicians look for ways to pay for them without getting run out of town. Thus the fees and other shenanigans. I called my own county legislator, Paul Haney, a Democrat, and asked him if he didn’t think the county needed to raise more revenue. His answer: Yes. But when the Dems spoke out after Brooks released her budget, there was not a word of understanding; no sympathy whatsoever. Haney agrees that Dems wouldn’t be any more likely to raise taxes forthrightly than the Republicans – because voters think taxes are un-American. “Unfortunately,” said Haney, “the political discourse over the last 10 years has drilled into their heads that we don’t need additional revenue in government. How you reverse that I don’t know. The first 10, 20, 50 politicians who stand up and say it are gonna be executed.” Rational voters understand the need for more taxes. Government shouldn’t spend our money foolishly, but when costs go up, revenue often must, too. Nationally, of course, political leaders are in a big hoohah over taxes, with conservatives leading the charge. We heard little conservatism, though, when George Bush took us into war, didn’t raise taxes to pay for it, and actually set about reducing them. There’s more than one kind of conservatism, of course. A conservatism

that believes in paying for what you buy is different from a conservatism that believes the less fortunate could get jobs and join the ranks of the well-to-do if they’d just buck up. To that second type of conservatism, starving the social welfare programs makes perfect sense. Here at home, though, something else helps drives the spending decisions: county officials simply don’t have much wiggle room. A huge amount of the county’s money goes to social services. That’s simply fact. Also fact: county officials don’t control a lot of what they spend. Other levels of government are in control. Maggie Brooks isn’t kidding when she says that we have a lot of unfunded mandates – programs and services that the state, for instance, says we have to provide but doesn’t fund, or doesn’t fully fund. So Brooks has to find a way to balance the budget by scrutinizing what’s left. She can cut some of those things, or she can get taxpayers to give the county more money. So I have a proposal for the Dems: Fess up on this. And see if you can’t find a few Republicans who agree with you that more revenue is needed. Then go out together and explain why. Explain what programs the county funds – and why we need those programs. Talk about things like education at Monroe Community College, child care for lowincome workers, housing for the poor, snowplowing, the arts. Explain that they are a community investment – in quality of life and in the future. I’d bet many local taxpayers would understand. And maybe you could start a trend. (Hope springs eternal.)

Development deal for Midtown Tower
Larry Glazer of Buckingham Properties and Bob Morgan of Morgan Management will combine forces to redevelop Midtown Tower. The $55 million plan will create up to 182 rental housing units in the tower, as well as three to five stories of commercial space. Mayor Tom Richards also announced that the city will begin gathering public input on a new master plan for downtown. There will be public meetings in January, and an online survey can be found at cityofrochester.gov/CenterCity.
Rochester train station proceeding
State Department of Transportation Commissioner Joan McDonald said she expects construction on a new Rochester train station to begin sometime next year. The project, which the state is managing, has received $26.5 million in funding commitments from the federal, state, and city governments. The state has also put together a steering committee, which includes Mayor Tom Richards and House Representative Louise Slaughter, to
guide the station’s design. The station will be owned and operated by Amtrak. Project website: www.dot.ny.gov/rochesterintermodalcenter/

Same-sex marriage goes to court
The Supreme Court announced that it will weigh in on two cases: Proposition 8 — which is California’s ban on samesex marriage — and the Defense of Marriage Act. The announcement is not a surprise; legal scholars have predicted for several years that the fate of the marriage-equality movement would be determined by the country’s highest court. The Obama administration has argued that DOMA is unconstitutional. The court is expected to hear the cases sometime in the spring.
Rochester Mayor Tom Richards: the city could never pay for a new RBTL theater on its own. FILE PHOTO
Don’t expect the City of Rochester to swoop in with a sweet offer to convince RBTL to build its new theater in downtown Rochester. If RBTL is serious about going to Irondequoit, Mayor Tom Richards says, it’ll go with his blessing. “I’m trying to be consistent with respect to what I think the civic responsibility is to this project,” he says. “It would be nice if [the theater] was downtown. It would be nice it if was in Midtown. But not at any price. Because while it’s important, it’s not necessarily the most important thing.” Developer Scott Congel has agreed to build a 3,000-seat theater for RBTL as part of his massive Medley Centre project. Congel would also pay off the debt on the Auditorium Theatre, which RBTL owns, and pay for renovations to the Aud. RBTL would continue to own the Aud, which would be used for smaller performances. RBTL has not raised money to demonstrate that the theater project

is credible, Richards says. For a $70 million to $80 million theater, the RBTL would need to come up with approximately $10 million or $20 million in private funds, Richards says. RBTL would also have to find a way to cover any operating deficits the theater incurs, he says. RBTL board chair Arnie Rothschild says the organization has never tried to raise money for a new theater in the city. City officials haven’t expressed a real interest in the project, he says. Richards says the whole thing shouldn’t fall on the city’s shoulders. Even though the Aud is in the city, a new theater would serve the broader region. But no one — politicians, Monroe County, state government, Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council — is stepping up with money or offers of support for RBTL’s new theater, Richards says.

In the Rochester area, several communities have developed plans to make their streets more hospitable to cyclists. For example, the city developed an extensive plan that includes bike lanes, shared-use street markings, and places for cyclists to lock up their bikes. Rochesterarea cycling advocates say state transportation officials should take a similar planning approach.

What about the bikes? A group of bicycling advocates wants to know why a State Department of Transportation planning document does not include investment in cycling and pedestrian projects. The document emphasizes several other transportation modes, says Brian Kehoe, executive director of the New York Bicycling Coalition, and he’d like to see sections devoted to bicycling and pedestrian infrastructure, too. He says the document also ignores the state’s new complete streets law, which requires road projects to incorporate all modes of transportation, including cycling and walking. “Millions of people walk and bike in New York State and we need to serve them,” Kehoe says. In the Rochester area, several communities have developed plans to make their streets more hospitable to cyclists. For example, the city developed an extensive plan that includes bike lanes, shared-use street markings, and places for cyclists to lock up their bikes. Rochester-area cycling advocates say state transportation officials should take a similar planning approach. It’s the state that has the final word on road features and improvements near some of the area’s major intersections, says Richard DeSarra, a Rochester-area cycling advocate.

DOT spokesperson Beau Duffy says the document in question is not a capital plan, which would include a detailed list of projects. Rather, it’s an overview of investment in four categories – including construction and local roads and bridges – that the department is required to submit to the New York Works Task Force, Duffy says. He says the DOT is committed to cycling and pedestrian infrastructure and has projects in the pipeline incorporating those elements. The projects will appear in the capital plan, he says. (Kehoe says accommodating cyclists and pedestrians should be a focus of state transportation officials at all levels of planning.) Duffy also says that the DOT is developing projects with the complete streets law in mind. “We just want everyone to understand that our commitment to bike-ped has not changed,” Duffy says.
O’Brien to join Dems Incoming State Senator Ted O’Brien says he’ll conference with Democrats, not the Independent Democratic Conference, when he heads to Albany in January. | “I feel an obligation to conference with the Democrats when I’m elected as a Democrat,” O’Brien said during a phone interview last week. | He said he’s had collegial conversations with IDC members Jeff Klein and Dave Valesky, and that he expects he’ll be able to work with Governor Andrew Cuomo, IDC members, and his own conference to advance issues, including a minimum-wage increase. He said he’s willing to work with anyone who’ll help him advocate for Monroe and Ontario counties. | The IDC and the Senate’s Republican Conference have reached an agreement for coalition control of the Senate. Klein and Republican Dean Skelos will serve as leaders of their respective conferences, and will share leadership responsibilities, such as setting agendas and making appointments to boards. And every two weeks they’ll alternate serving as the Senate’s temporary president. | For the time being, O’Brien is still serving in the County Legislature. He said he doesn’t know when he’ll step down from that position, only that it’ll happen by December 31.

SOCIAL JUSTICE | BY JEREMY MOULE
A crisis for youth in crisis The Hillside Family of Agencies stopped providing emergency housing for homeless and runaway youth earlier this year. The shelter, which operated since the 1970’s, has seen a considerate drop in state funding over the last several years. Hillside received $107,437 in runaway and homeless youth program funding from the state in 2008, and $29,150 in 2012. The state money goes to the Rochester-Monroe County Youth Bureau, which distributes the funding. In 2011, Hillside’s emergency shelter program served 31 young people. Hillside tried to keep the shelter going, but it also lost $100,000 in federal grant money, and that’s what ultimately did the program in, says Tess MahnkenWeatherspoon, a staff member at the agency. (She says Hillside plans to reapply for the federal grants in the hope that it can resume providing emergency housing.) Hillside still gets some runaway and homeless youth funding through the county youth bureau. It is used to provide case management services for homeless and runaway youth at its drop-in center, Mahnken-Weatherspoon says. Hillside is not the only agency to lose runaway and homeless youth funding. The state’s made drastic cuts to the funding, which is directed through local youth bureaus, over the past several years. It’s cut funding for other youth bureau programs as well. For example, the Rochester-Monroe County Youth Bureau, which is a county department, will receive approximately 59 percent less state aid in 2013 — $801,882 — than it did in 2006, when it received approximately $2 million. Kelly Reed, commissioner of the County Department of Human Services, says the cuts have led her to shrink youth bureau staff. And the department has reduced the size of all of its contracts, though some more than others. The county has tried to preserve runaway and homeless youth funding for shelters, however, Reed says. In 2013, Reed plans a different approach. The youth bureau, which will be called the Office of Youth Development, and the Office for the Aging will be combined to create the Office of Intergenerational Support. Both will still exist as defined entities, which will allow the county to continue receiving certain state funding. “We’re done waiting to hear what’s going to happen with the funding and we’re planning forward,” Reed says. City
DECEMBER 12-18, 2012
The merger sounds technical and bureaucratic, and in a sense it is. But Reed says the plan has distinct benefits. For example, it’ll allow the county to better plan intergenerational events and programs similar to its Intergenerational Fishing Derby at Powder Mills Park and an annual holiday ball, Reed says. The merger has an operational benefit, too, she says. Someone will be appointed primary director of the new office and that person will be in charge of financial management, Reed says. The director will also search for new funding sources. County officials say they expect to
receive $165,672 in state runaway and homeless youth funding for 2013. That’s down approximately 51 percent from the $336,821 the county received in 2006. As a result, county spending on contracts for homeless and runaway youth services has fallen from $381,499 in 2006 to $148,108 in 2013. In 2006, the programs served 1,550 youth, but the county expects to serve 890 in 2013. Anecdotally, shelters for homeless youth nationwide are reporting increased demand, says Jeff Kaczorowski, a children’s advocate and president of the Children’s Agenda. And locally, the demand is high enough that some youth are placed in adult shelters or hotel rooms, he says. The Center for Youth also gets runaway and homeless youth funding through the county youth bureau. And like Hillside, the center has seen that money decrease, though federal funding is helping preserve services, including the center’s emergency shelters. But the teens that the center serves are staying longer on average than in the past, says Elaine Spaull, the center’s executive director. The shelter served approximately 140 youth in the first six months of 2012, but had to turn away dozens of youth in need, Spaull says. The center offers temporary shelter for youth in crisis, though much of the runaway and homeless youth funding
Jeff Kaczorowski (left), executive director of The Children’s Agenda, and County Legislator Carrie Andrews, say that they are concerned about generally decreasing funding for youth programs. FILE PhotoS
it receives goes toward intervention and counseling services. “Without that positive youth development piece, it doesn’t have as much traction because it’s more of a short-term intervention than a long-term fix,” Spaull says. The Center for Youth also gets youth
bureau funding for programs aimed at preventing homelessness, bullying, drug and alcohol abuse, and violence. Other community and social service organization receive funding for similar programs. And the Rochester-Monroe County Youth Bureau also supports youth leadership programs. But as a result of state cuts, the bureau is spending less on those programs, too. Carrie Andrews, the County Legislature’s Democratic leader, says the trend of decreasing youth bureau funding and spending worries her. While that’s happened, other youth programs — arts, recreation, and after-school programs — have lost funding, she says. “There’s becoming a void of programming for young people and it doesn’t seem like it’s the right time to leave such a void,” Andrews says. “We really need to step up our efforts in this area.”
Kaczorowski says the city, in particular, is struggling with youth violence, low graduation rates, and high teen pregnancy rates. The state and county should be increasing investment in youth programs and ensuring that programs receiving money are high quality and effective, Kaczorowski says. He says his organization is willing to work with the county to secure funding and to help it guide investments toward effective programs. “A loss of youth bureau funding, given what’s going on for youth, is a problem,” he says. And Andrews says that, ultimately, she’s optimistic about Reed’s plan to form the Office of Intergenerational Support. “Obviously, young people need assistance and we should have good, effective programs,” she says. “And if what we’re doing now isn’t working, then we should revamp it. So perhaps this is a step in the right direction.”

COMMENTING ON THE STATE OF ROCHESTER & BEYOND
Dining sits next to bhindi masala, which is next to a steaming tray of dal, and a pan full of kidney beans and black lentils that may convince you that chili does not actually need meat to be delicious. Then, a chorus line of Indian-buffet favorites: navratan korma, chicken curry, vegetable vindaloo, saag paneer, chicken makhani, and tandoori chicken legs. An assortment of Indian desserts — I tend to favor the creamy kheer because everything else is tooth-achingly sweet — bring up the rear. There’s nothing — with the exception of

It is not Christmas at Royal India. Crouched on the edge of the commercial sprawl that is Henrietta, Royal India sits apart from the celebration of America’s No. 1 consumer holiday, an oasis in a desert of faux holiday cheer. Mommy is not kissing Santa Claus here. Nor is anyone bemoaning giving their heart away last Christmas. They are too busy refilling their plates from what is arguably one of the best, and the cheapest, Indian buffets in town. And then going back for seconds, and then thirds of standards like chicken makhani and navratan korma, and harder-to-find dishes like Hyderabadi eggplant curry or chaat. It’s not Christmas here, but it doesn’t have to be: Royal India’s buffet is a balm for your aching soul and depleted wallet any day of the year.
When Jasvir Grewal, a native of Punjab who most recently lived and worked in Buffalo, decided to move to Rochester to open up an Indian restaurant of his own, he picked a nearly ideal location for his new enterprise: about a half-mile from RIT and right next door to Spice Bazaar, the largest Indian grocery store in the area. But he also opened up in one of the most competitive areas of the county in terms of Indian food. Four excellent Indian restaurants — three of them offering superb buffets — are within a mile of his restaurant, and the kitchen door of one of the best of them abuts Royal India’s parking lot. According to Grewal’s daughter Jaspret Kaur, her father initially priced his menu — and his buffet — in accordance with what everyone else was charging. But he quickly amended his business strategy, lowering his prices to appeal to cash-strapped students, relying on volume to make up for the smaller price tag (lunch buffet costs $7.95, $10.95 for dinner). So far that strategy has paid off. It would be very difficult to find a better or more filling lunch anywhere in Rochester for less than you would pay to do a couple of loads of laundry at the laundromat. Royal India does not get by on its looks,
though. The restaurant’s décor is a
hodgepodge of the various other restaurants that have inhabited the space before it. The lighting is dim. The music coming out of the speakers is a little scratchy. Everything looks more than a little battered and tired. Everything, that is, except for the magisterial buffet of Indian food that forms an L around one side of the room. A small salad bar full of lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and red onion shares space with a compact chaat bar, offering spiced potatoes, puffed-up pieces of papadum, potato and pea samosas, and the usual trio of chaat sauces — a creamy white yogurt sauce, mint and coriander chutney, and a tangy dark brown tamarind sauce. All of it is exceptionally fresh-looking and tasting (even the dough on the samosas still had a bit of crunch to it, something that’s not easy to do on a buffet). Assuming you haven’t already filled your plate, and your stomach, to capacity in this the smallest part of the buffet, turn right and you will be facing trays full of crispy onion bhajia (deep-fried fritters made from onion and lentil flour) and medu vada (a savory analog of the doughnut also made with lentil flour). These, in turn, are next to trays of rice with green peas or rice with cumin seeds (jeera rice). And then comes a long parade of curries. Masala eggplant
the eggplant — that makes this buffet stand apart from its peers at first glance. But dig in and you’ll notice that it tastes a bit fresher than the average, the flavors are bright and clean rather than muddy. The navaratan korma, for instance, has the typical bag of frozen vegetables as its base, but Grewal also adds in a generous amount of very fresh cauliflower florets to give the dish some body. The chicken makhani, often made in Indian restaurant kitchens by adding spices to canned tomato soup, has a real depth of flavor and a nice round mouth-feel without the tinny aftertaste of the shortcut version of the dish. The spinach in the saag paneer even retained a bit of its green color — an indication that some, if not all of the greens, in the dish were fresh rather than frozen. I was also gratified to discover that the paneer, a homemade cheese, had the slightly loose texture of fresh-made cheese rather than the denser, spongy feel of the massproduced version of the product. But about that eggplant I mentioned earlier: if you eat nothing else when you visit Royal India, the baingan masala entrée ($12) is not to be missed. For those familiar with Indian food as a source for creamy sauces in which to dip bits of naan, this dish — more Punjabi than southern Indian — is a drier curry. The sauce takes a backseat to the tiny eggplants, onions, and tomatoes that have been stir-fried in it. I’ve had baingan masala before, but all of the other versions have cut the eggplants in half, resulting in mushy eggplant and ultimately a soupy mess of a dish. Keeping the vegetable whole allows the flavors to concentrate, and the eggplant to obtain an almost meaty texture that is eminently satisfying. Against the smoky, tangy background of the sauce, the faint bitterness of the eggplant stands out sharply, balancing and ultimately unifying the best dish on this, or any, Indian buffet I’ve sampled in the Rochester area.

he way you watch movies has changed, and you probably haven’t even noticed. For more than 100 years film — actual, physical film, much of it produced by Rochester’s own Kodak — has been synonymous with motion pictures. But if you see a new movie in a big-screen chain theater today, what you’re seeing is likely being projected digitally, the information embedded in a hard drive and played on to the screen by a very expensive, very complicated piece of equipment. It has more in common with a song on your iPod than it does with the reels and canisters that captured the films of the 20th century. The shift to digital has its perks. The picture is arguably cleaner and crisper; the film can be shown hundreds of times and never look any different (whereas film can easily become scratched, dulled, or damaged over time). But the major reason why movie theaters are switching — being forced, some say — to digital projection comes down to money. A digital copy of a film costs approximately 10 percent what it costs to print and ship a physical film, and when you’re talking about hundreds, even thousands of copies of a major Hollywood production, those percentages add up fast. That’s why studios like 20th Century Fox — which puts out the “X-Men” and “Star Wars” movies, and even the recent “Lincoln” and “Life of Pi” — announced to exhibitors that it would stop distributing 35mm film prints in the near future. IHS Screen Digest Cinema Intelligence reports that all major studios are looking to stop using conventional
10 City DECEMBER 12-18, 2012
35mm prints in the United States by the end of 2013, and globally by the end of 2015. Most of the major theater chains have already embraced the switch to digital projectors. But given that the formats require totally new machines, which can cost anywhere from $60,000 to $150,000 per screen, that leaves smaller independent cinemas with a real financial burden. If they don’t make the technological jump, there will be no new movies for them to show in the foreseeable future. And coming up with five figures for equipment that will only marginally impact the customer experience is hard to swallow. Earlier this year the National Association of Theater Owners estimated that 20 percent of the cinemas in the United States, which account for up to 10,000 screens, would not be able to convert to digital, and would likely close. But here’s the good news: in Rochester, our local independent cinemas are ready for the challenge. Art-house cinema The Little, the George Eastman House’s archival Dryden Theatre, and neighborhood film house The Cinema are all in the process of making the leap to digital, and one local indie filmmaker has even taken the industry shift as an opportunity for a savvy business move he hopes will benefit both indie theaters and filmmakers. But even as they prepare for this major shift, area film professionals debate digital’s impact on artistry, archiving, and business.
t borders on ironic, but the local
independent theater that’s furthest along in the digital conversion is the archival Dryden Theatre, which specializes in
showing films from the art form’s storied past. On January 2, following a New Year’s Day screening of “Cinema Paradiso,” the Dryden will close for two months as it undergoes the third phase in a decade-long renovation project. When it reopens on March 2, the theater will be totally overhauled with new, larger seats, more legroom in the balcony, a darker color scheme for the walls and carpets, new accessibility functions for the deaf and hard-of-hearing, and a new Barco digital projector. (Also, brace yourself, cineasts: there will be no Eastman House Oscar Party this year.) Caroline Yeager, assistant curator of motion pictures, said in a press release: “A key component of this project is the museum’s commitment to honor the aesthetic choices of filmmakers by projecting moving images — analog and digital — as they were meant to be seen. Acknowledging the ascendency of digital formats while continuing to showcase historic film prints is crucial for sustaining the Dryden’s role as one of the oldest leading archival screening venues.” The digital projector will share the Dryden projection booth with reel-to-reel Kinoton 16mm/35mm projectors and 35mm Century nitrate-rated projectors dating from when the Dryden was constructed in 1951. The Dryden is one of only five theaters in the country still equipped to project nitrate films, which are potentially combustible. Yeager says that the staff at the Eastman House saw the need for digital projection capability coming several years ago, and had been working to secure funding for the project from state grants and individual donors as
part of the ongoing Dryden renovation plans. Digital Cinema Package — the official term for the new digital film format — is simply what’s happening with the industry, Yeager says. There are elements of the digital shift that Yeager embraces as a film fan. In March she attended screenings as part of the Film Forum in New York City’s “This Is DCP” series that helped to demystify digital projection. One of the films she saw was a digitally remastered and projected version of the 1953 classic “From Here to Eternity.” She was almost rapturous in describing how the black-and-white movie shimmered in digital, noting that it never looked that good in any film print that she saw. But there are also elements of the forced shift to digital that she finds problematic. It dictates to artists the format used to deliver their work. She notes that visual artists aren’t told that they can only work in pastels or watercolors, but the move to DCP means that even if a filmmaker shoots in 35mm film — which some, including director Christopher Nolan of the recent “Dark Knight” trilogy, strongly prefer — it will have to be transferred to digital if the film has any hope of serious distribution. Even the process of making a movie can change with digital, as new cameras can keep shooting for longer takes without the issue of running out of film, she notes. “For some filmmakers, it’s a joy,” Yeager says of digital. “But it is changing the way we even talk about films. Is it even film anymore? It’s really just moving images. Some are just calling it ‘cinema.’ It’s a brave new world.” One element of the digital conversion that Yeager and other archivists find especially

troubling is what it means for preserving cinematic works. Physical film could last for 800 to 900 years if stored properly, she says. (Incidentally, the oldest film in the Eastman House collection dates back to 1893.) Storing digital files is already proving tricky for archivists, and then there’s the issue of whether equipment that can play current formats will even be around in a decade or so. When’s the last time you saw an 8-track player or a Betamax? “It’s a bad idea to switch altogether,” Yeager says. To underline the importance of something more permanent than a series of zeros and ones saved to a disc, Yeager mentions how MGM approached the George Eastman House to use the original CMY negatives of both “Gone With the Wind” and “The Wizard of Oz” when creating the 70th anniversary Blu-ray versions of both films, so that they could get the best possible picture. “Always go back to the negatives. There’s always more information there,” Yeager says. (In a weird intersection of film and digital, the visual information in the negatives was perhaps too good, as modern imaging capabilities now allow some of the films’ formerly hidden flaws to show up, such as wig lines on the Munchkins.)

meaning that the Little could be looking at up to $500,000 in new equipment, depending on brands, how far the screen is from the projection booth, and a host of other technical questions. The DCP setup also involves computer servers, satellite links, and other equipment that probably hadn’t even been conceived of when the projectors currently serving the theater were built more than two decades ago. As of now, the Little has only 35mm projectors, says Chris Hogan-Roy, who has been lead projectionist at the theater for three years. But plans call for the Little to start transitioning to DCP projectors — in this case NEC models, with Dolby sound systems — slowly, theater by theater, with the hopes of the first being installed by May or June. The timeline depends on money, which hinges on the fundraising efforts of WXXI, which entered into a long-term affiliation with The Little nearly a year ago. Norm Silverstein, president of WXXI, says so far the partnership with The Little has gone “even better than we expected,” citing increased box-office sales and the ability for the station to host special events and screenings at the East End theater. Looking ahead to 2013, Silverstein says that a major campaign is being launched with the goal to raise $1 million for improvements to the Little. Part of that is $80,000 to $100,000 per theater for digital conversion. “We’ve already had some issues with prints; it’s already hard to get a good print for continues on page 12 rochestercitynewspaper.com City 11

certain films,” Silverstein says. “Going forward this will become more apparent.” “The biggest thing we want to do is retain film,” says Hogan-Roy. “The digital age is coming, but we’re a small art-house theater, and a lot of the films we get are only available in 35mm. We want to be able to provide the whole experience: digital cinema, 35mm, and other formats.” For The Little, with its multiple screens, slow and steady may be key financially, especially given how quickly technology tends to become outmoded in an iEverything world. “The digital age is constantly changing,” Hogan-Roy says. “Putting these projectors in all at once, and then a year later there are upgrades… that’s a very hard concept to spend all this money and then I need to upgrade my equipment. When we start theater by theater, it’ll be better to see the new things.” He is encouraged by the fact that indie theaters across the country have been flexing their collective muscle in this process, and getting some concessions from distributors and equipment manufacturers. “Indie theaters have a lot of pull. In the end distributors need us,” he says. So, for instance, he says that NEC has already made sure that its equipment is upgradable, which he says should make it more affordable. “There are still a lot of theaters running 35mm,” he says. “That’s a beautiful format that should never be ruined. Digital will be great for a lot of reasons. A lot of filmmakers shoot on digital and had to transfer it before. But I don’t think digital will ever match film. It’s a beautiful, beautiful format right when you see it. Digital will show you that, but it will also change the game, too. People are playing with frame rates. People are looking at it digitally instead of artistically.” (For example, Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” which opens this weekend, is screening in select theaters at 48 frames per second instead of the standard 24.) 12 City DECEMBER 12-18, 2012
Chris Hogan-Roy (ABOVE) is the lead projectionist at The Little. “There are still a lot of theaters running 35mm,” he says. “That’s a beautiful format that should never be ruined. Digital will be great for a lot of reasons, but I don’t think digital will ever match film.”
“Overall, I think digital or 35mm, it’s the film,” says Hogan-Roy. “If the film is not good, it doesn’t matter if it’s 35mm or digital. That’s one strong point The Little has: We play great films. Maybe our audience will notice [the shift to digital projection], but if they don’t, that’s good. They’re noticing the films and stories.” Silverstein says that a request has been made to the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council for $250,000, which would “go a long way toward getting this project started,” he says. The results of those grant proposals have not yet been released, but Silverstein says he is optimistic.

are planning to keep their existing film projectors to use alongside the new digital ones, that won’t be an option for neighborhood theater The Cinema. Local realestate owner John Trickey took over ownership of the Clinton Avenue film house in May. He calls himself a longtime supporter of the Cinema, having been a patron since he was a college student in the 1980’s. Trickey says he was charmed by the fact that “it’s different from other theaters; other theaters are kind of sterile, and the Cinema had a more homey feel.” The Cinema currently uses a 35mm platter projector, but “we’re on limited time,” Trickey says. “We have about a year before we need to be switched over to digital.” The problem is that, due to the size of its current projector, “we’re going to have to remove our 35mm equipment so that they come in and install digital equipment.” Trickey says that the quote he’s been given for the new set up will be $62,000 to $65,000, and that he accepts that he’ll just have to find a way to pay for it. The interesting wrinkle is that, since he’s taken over the theater, Trickey has been working
Theaters aren’t the only part of the film industry affected by the shift to digital. Independent filmmakers are watching the move carefully, and some are wary of how the changes in distribution could further reduce already limited screening opportunities for their movies. But one local production company is taking the challenge and turning it into an opportunity that it hopes will benefit independent theaters, filmmakers, and filmgoers. Rochester-based filmmaker Rich Angell (“Sophomore,” “After,” “Drivers Wanted”) and his business partner, John Maggio, have started the Keep Indie Visible campaign. The plan is to identify 50 independent cinemas across the country that are at risk due to the costs associated with the switch to digital projection, create partnerships with them, and in exchange for financial assistance with the theaters’ digital conversion, bring them in as part of what would emerge as essentially a direct indie-film distribution network. Angell says that the changes going on in the industry make one-off indie film projections less financially viable. His solution was to create a film fund to produce a slate of 12 to 15 films over five years. Some will be produced right here in Rochester, Angell says, while others will be picked up from film festivals and other sources. Theaters that become part of the Keep Indie Visible project will get digital-projection equipment through KIV’s digital installer Sonic Equipment Company, with the caveat that they must screen a certain number of the project’s related films for a certain period of time — the rest of the screening decisions are left to the individual theaters’ discretion. At the end of the five-year agreement, the digital equipment stays with the participating theaters. There’s also a crowd-sourcing component involved with Keep Indie
to show more archival or specialty films, instead of solely focusing on the quasi-second-run titles that have made up the majority of the double features for the Cinema’s recent history. So, for instance, he’s done two successful midnight screenings of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” a John Waters double feature, and also recently showed “Cinema Paradiso.” And he wants to do more of that in the future. “That’s what I wanted to reintroduce to the Cinema, Trickey says. “When I used to go back in the 1980’s, that was the big reason I went there — the programming was all over the board.” There are times of the year when Hollywood’s output is not the strongest, Trickey says, and he wants to be able to show “older classics that maybe some of the younger generation was never able to see, or even the older generation would like to see in a theater.” But, as Trickey notes, some of those movies you can only get on 35mm. And since he’ll have
Visible through fundraising website indiegogo.com, although the campaign was still in draft form at press time. While the branding on Keep Indie Visible’s website is all about saving independent theaters, “Ultimately this is a business venture,” Angell says. “It’s not just altruistic; we don’t have deep pockets. We can’t just go around saving theaters. We’d love to do that, but at the end of the day it is a business.” “It’s win-win-win,” says Maggio. “For filmmakers, for us as distributors, for the theaters. The theaters not only get equipment, but they can show modern studio films, alternative content, and we give them a healthy cut — it’s 50/50. And filmmakers get a chance to show movies in these theaters they wouldn’t be able to otherwise.” Angell says that Keep Indie Visible is “really trying to diversify the theaters we’re talking to,” he says. “Ideally we’d love to be in 50 states, one theater in each state, and build off that to two or three.” In November Angell said that Keep Indie Visible was in the process of working with 25 theaters, specifically naming The Screen in Santa Fe, New Mexico; the ART Theater in Hobart, Indiana; and The Castro Theatre in San Francisco. Locally Angell says KIV has approached the Dryden about some kind of a partnership. Angell says, “The big thing locally is our heart is here, and our goal in Upstate New York and Rochester specifically is to foster independent filmmaking and the little industry we’ve been able to build here. Lots of people are excited about filming here. Hopefully this not only allows us to convert independent theaters, but with our network of theaters across the country, to continue to push filmmaking locally. Keep Indie Visible was originated out of necessity for us as film producers to better make our movies.”
to get rid of his platter projector to make room for digital, that means he’ll have to either find another film projector that might work in the same space as his impending digital equipment, or resort to showing films via DVD — although he notes that not every film has made even that technological jump. “There are a couple of films out there that I like that never made it onto DVD,” Trickey says. If theaters are forced to show movies via DVD, it also raises the question of why people should go to the cinemas at all. “A lot of people wonder why they don’t just watch on their screens at home,” says The Little’s Chris Hogan-Roy. That’s part of why he thinks it’s important to continue to preserve the physical film format. “I think 35mm will have a renaissance, too. That’s what happens in the art world, and that’s what films are. We’re moving forward, because that’s how the industry is going. But we’re clinging on because that’s who we are. The movies aren’t going to change; it’s just the way they’re projected.”

Swing, swang, swung The Salamanders had an album out a while ago called “Livestock in the Livingroom” (and by “a while ago” I mean 1992), and that’s kind of how I feel when I’m digging a show at Abilene, corralled in with all my roots-rock brethren and sisteren. Tuesday, December 4, was no different as Nashville’s Black Lilies brought a definite pump and groove to its acoustic-centered rockacana. It was beautiful and had a perfect electric tingle brought on and brought out by the steel/ guitar player as he wrung out well-balanced notes and made them boogie and cry along with some of the livestock in attendance. Friday night was the thriller for me as twang-master Bill Kirchen swing, swang, and swung his guitar like a six-string battle axe in front of a nearly overflowing Lovin’ Cup. He was particularly on fire with his trademark call-and-response fluidity and charming self-deprecation. And since I’ve surrendered my guitar to disease, Kirchen invited me up to sing some Leiber and Stoller with him and the band. It meant more that he will ever know. What a class act. I left the Cup on a cloud and floated over to Sticky Lips Juke Joint, where The Filthy McNastys were laying it down and stomping on it before picking it back up

again. A few folks fought the urge to dance, and lost. The twin-guitar attack of Gregg Cole and TC Cummings was monstrous as they traded off slick and slippery slabs of salacious slide guitar. There’s a little throwback going on here, and I’m not the only one to make an Allman Brothers reference — not just from the guitars, but from the rhythmic groove and vocal growl as well. A totally red-hot, no-shit band. Saturday night’s performance by New York City’s Hollis Brown at Water Street Music Hall was captivating for the most part — with the exception of a few illplaced covers — and reminded me quite a bit of Whiskeytown. The band was in a unique position, as nobody knew what to expect. These guys will definitely draw the next the next time they hit town, as I witnessed hips and feet and legs responding to their sound — not because they were supposed to, but because they felt it. Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds was the big draw of the night and opened its set like a firing squad. Horns and horns and a harmonica I couldn’t hear laid the way for Sister Sparrow’s bouncy alto and boundless energy. It was effortless R&B-tinged funky soul without cliché or pretense. But it was huge. Size is everything.

Brad Lubman will conduct two orchestras simultaneously as part of Musica Nova’s upcoming tribute concert to recently deceased modern composer Elliott Carter. PHOTO COURTESY PAUL COLEMAN
The rhythms of time Musica Nova Friday, December 14 Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs St. 8 p.m. | Free | 274-1100, esm.rochester.edu [ PREVIEW ] BY PALOMA CAPANNA
“It’s weird to talk about him in the past tense.” With that heart-felt sentiment, conductor Brad Lubman references the recent death of legendary American composer Elliott Carter. “He was 103 and lived an extremely long and fruitful life,” says Lubman. “At a certain point, you thought he was going to live forever.” On December 14, Lubman will conduct Carter’s “Double Concerto for Piano and Harpsichord with Two Chamber Orchestras” with the Eastman School of Music’s Musica Nova, including guest artists Angela Jia Kim at the piano, Daniel Pesca at the harpsichord. Scheduled before Carter’s death in November of this year, the performance will become a tribute to his memory. Carter (1908-2012) came late to composing by today’s standards, although he went on to compose and win coveted accolades for more than 60 years. He majored in English at Harvard University for his undergraduate degree, before earning a master’s degree in music. Under an early influence of American composer Charles Ives (1874-1954), his later musical studies included three years with Nadia Boulanger in Paris in the 1930’s. Carter earned his 16 City DECEMBER 12-18, 2012
doctorate in music from the École Normale Supérieure (Paris). By 1960, he won his first Pulitzer Prize; a second followed in 1973. Carter was elected to the American Academy of Arts & Sciences in 1963, and the American Academy of Arts & Letters in 1969. He was awarded an American National Medal of Arts in 1985, and the French Commander of the Legion of Honor the same year. Although Carter composed modern music, Lubman says one of Carter’s favorite pieces was a section from Mozart’s “Don Giovanni,” composed in 1787, when three orchestras play simultaneously. The December 14 program will also feature two works written in 2011, by American composers Charles Wuorinen (b. 1938) and John Zorn (b. 1953). Fred Sherry, cello, will be the guest soloist in work written for him by Zorn, titled “À Rebours” (“Against the Nap”). According to Lubman, “Carter, Zorn,
Wuorinen. It’s like saying Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven. You could say these are the 20th century and 21st century composers coming out of New York City, the way we say the others were the First Viennese School.” Musica Nova is a new-music ensemble at the Eastman School of Music with its own origins in that early to mid-1960’s timeframe in which Carter was composing the “Double Concerto.” Lubman became music director of the group in 1997. Earlier this year, Musica Nova, in conjunction with Ensemble Signal, performed a concert that included the Pulitzer-winning “Double Sextet” by Steve Reich — a piece that also involves two
ensembles with a single conductor — which brought down the house in Kilbourn Hall. Lubman met Carter on several occasions, twice working with him in rehearsals of Carter’s works, once in the early 1990’s in NYC for a piece called “Triple Duo” and then again the late 1990’s for his opera, “What Next?” He describes Carter as “a wonderful, charming, and erudite man and musician.” Tempo is the hallmark of Carter’s compositions, and not just “tempo” in and of itself, but the idea of having several, different tempos going on spontaneously. Lubman says, “In almost all of Carter’s music, the different tempos are engineered to fit into one beat for the conductor, meaning that if I’m conducting in 3, Carter will give different polyrhythms to different instruments which, mathematically speaking, are in different tempos.” Speaking specifically of the upcoming performance of the “Double Concerto,” Lubman put into words the coda in the last three to four minutes of the piece. On the stage will be two, separate, different ensembles — one associated with the piano, the other with the harpsichord. Lubman, atop the conductor’s podium, will be in the middle. And, during the coda, Lubman says, “The ensemble on my right is in 3 and to my left the ensemble is in 2 or 4, depending on how you count it. I conduct simultaneously in 3 in the right hand and 2 or 4 in the left.” According to Daniel Pesca, a composer
and pianist who will perform at the harpsichord for the “Double Concerto,” “the hardest part of all is conducting the
damn thing.” Pesca credits Lubman’s “absolutely unshakable sense of pulse” as the key to the anticipated success of the performance. Pesca says, “The rhythm of the music just kind of vibrates from [Lubman’s] body through the air. He feels rhythm in a very bodily way, but stays rooted in a sort of physical groundedness.” The juxtaposition of Carter’s use of a piano and a harpsichord in the same work is not lost on Pesca, who says, “The tension comes from how these things really don’t mix. There’s a dialogue between these two instruments that’s very fraught with tension, which finally explodes into chaos.” Pesca takes his interpretation of the “Double Concerto” even further, passionately defending that Carter’s music, including this work, is just as relevant today as it was when it was first written in 1961. “It’s incredibly complicated on the surface,” says Pesca. “Once you listen beyond that and get more into the language of the piece, you realize there is a human drama being played out. The harpsichord has its own orchestra, as does the piano. These are the generals with their own little battalions, and in the background is a really large spread of percussion instruments that at various points in the piece threaten to overtake it by sheer volume as if moving towards anarchy.” Pesca double-majored in piano and composition for both his bachelors of music degree from the Eastman School of Music in 2005 and his masters of music from the University of Michigan in 2007. He is currently studying at ESM for his DMA. Pesca says, “The thing that motivated Carter was his vision, and he found a way.” Pesca pulls Russian composer Igor Stravinsky into the conversation on Carter’s merits. “I want to quote Stravinsky on this piece. Stravinsky said it was a masterpiece of American music. Stravinsky had rather finicky tastes, so this gives you a sense of how pivotal this piece is.” Perhaps the best argument in support of Pesca’s argument that Carter is timeless is that Carter’s “time” was quite literally up to three months before his death, when his final composition to be released was “12 Short Epigrams for Piano.” Lubman relates to Carter “aiming for what he always wanted,” which was for music to reflect the time period in which he lived. “Carter was always saying this in interviews: in an older time of horse-drawn carriages, times were simpler, there was one pace, there was a unified rhythm. But, in the 21st century in a big city, very often you can find a multitude of things not related and you perceive them all and they are each in their own tempo,” says Lubman. “This is the hallmark of all of Carter’s work.”

HAP PY HOLI DAYS! SINGER/SONGWRITER | Richard Buckner
As the Americana idiom moves closer and closer to its flamboyant stage — more electricity and speed — it’s nice to have anchors like Brooklyn-based Richard Buckner, who remains on the acoustic side of the street. Comparisons have been made to Townes Van Zandt and the other patron saints of the road-weary, whiskey-soaked, hardcore troubadours. Nick Young fills out the bill.

ROCK | Pujol
CLASSICAL | Madrigalia
CAJUN | C’est Bon
Nashville-based trio Pujol rocks hard and cranks out Southern-fried garage-punk boogie as competently as the Colonel fries chicken. Lead singer Daniel Pujol is prolific and his band has a certain je ne sais quoi that’s charmed the ears of folks including Jack White, who produced the group’s B-side single “Too Safe.” Pujol strips its raw, energetic sound down to a bare minimum of guitar fuzz, rumbling bass, pounding drums, and a go-for-broke attitude. But what’s really got this joint jumping is Daniel Pujol’s snarling vocals that make you wonder if he’s ever dug the Chesterfield Kings. Routine Involvements opens. Shakedown DJ’s to follow bands at 11 p.m.
Offering comfort in the familiar, this weekend Madrigalia puts on two performances of its annual holiday concert, “Ring Out, Wild Bells!” Program selections on the “bell” theme include “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day,” “Ding Dong! Merrily on High,” and “Carol of the Bells.” Joining Madrigalia for the Friday evening performance will be the Third Church Ringers bell choir. Madrigalia, now in its 36th season, is a chamber ensemble, performing works across the centuries and styles.
’Tis the season, or you might say the a-cajun, for the Rochester Cajun Zydeco Network’s annual Christmas party, this year with C’est Bon. The band is made up of five gals — all stars from other area zydeco outfits — and one lone dude on the drums set to rock the dancehall. They call it hard-rockin’, foot stompin’, girl-powered Cajun dancehall music. Call it whatever you like, but no one will hear you over the happy feet on the hardwood. Wheee!

Brian Doran, Peter J. Doyle, Linda Loy, Jake Purcell, and Mary Tiballi, then gather around two microphones and, employing different voices, bring to life nearly two dozen different characters. Meanwhile Baxter mans a table full of foley devices to recall doors shutting, heels clicking, wind blowing, and the other familiar sounds of Bedford Falls. The audience serves as a live studio audience for the show-within-a-show, so the actors know that we are there. Some of them, especially Tiballi, even interact a bit with the crowd during their “off” moments, a nice touch that reminds us that we’re watching multiple levels of storytelling. That’s also called to mind when pages from the script (the show is presented script-inhand, which again makes sense given the format) go flying at a key moment, leaving the actors scrambling on stage, and one moment between Loy and Doyle that I’m relatively certain was a mistake but which both handled with humor and skill.

Bells will be ringing “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play” Through December 22 Blackfriars Theatre, 795 E. Main St. $27 | 454-1260, bftix.org [ REVIEW ] BY ERIC REZSNYAK
A successful holiday show should balance familiarity and freshness. It should be able to evoke feelings of nostalgia, to take audiences back to happy childhood memories of this time of year. (That is the only possible explanation for the continued airings of that dreadful “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” TV special from the 1970’s.) And it should feel new enough that it doesn’t seem like you’ve already seen it a hundred times over. Blackfriars Theatre satisfies all those conditions with its holiday show for 2012, “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play.” It tells the story immortalized in Frank Capra’s classic 1946 film, which is still a Christmas staple that pulls solid ratings on broadcast TV and packs the Dryden for its annual screenings. But it does so with a twist. It’s presented as a live radio play being broadcast from late 1940’s/early 1950’s New York City. A troupe of five 20 City december 12-18, 2012
actors and one stage manager bring to life all of the story’s characters and scenes via voice acting and sound effects. Radio plays have increasingly been popping up in local theaters; the Shakespeare Company has been presenting them for more than a year at MuCCC. They’re a smart way to tell complicated stories that strip out the need for a huge cast, expensive sets, and difficult-to-achieve special effects. And indeed, the program for “Wonderful Life” notes that writer Joe Landry came to this format after he tried to do a traditional stage adaptation of the story but production costs “skyrocketed.” Turning the show into a radio play makes for an engaging, briskly paced version of George Bailey’s story, and infuses it with bits of whimsy and mid-century charm. Fans of the original film version will find much to like here, and those who have never seen it will have no problem following the story. The show opens with stage manager Dave
Baxter — who usually works behind the scenes at Blackfriars and other local theaters, but for this show remains on stage the whole time — gathering his actors for the broadcast on WBFR. The actors, played by local actors
George Bailey role. His program bio mentions that he is a fan of the original film going back to childhood, and Jimmy Stewart’s iconic delivery colors his portrayal — but it never feels like a rip-off or caricature. There’s a real vulnerability in his performance, and his George remains sympathetic even when he’s in full self-destructive meltdown mode. Peter Doyle possesses a seemingly endless range of voices to call from, and the play even gives him a few occasions in which he engages in prolonged conversations with himself. His announcer voice has that beautiful lilt associated with classic radio. Brian Doran is the most animated member of the cast, bringing quite a bit of physicality to his voiceover work. His voice for Clarence the Angel is borderline parody, but then again, so is the Clarence from the film. As mentioned earlier, Tiballi is the actor who most plays up the live-studio-audience aspect of the show. That, coupled with the chemistry she enjoys with Purcell, makes sense: she’s not just playing a sweet, mannered Bedford Falls housewife; she’s playing an aspiring starlet, and it all works. Linda Loy also brings a little unspoken storyline to her actress character, who sneaks in at the absolute last second. Was that stray hair throughout the show intentional? I suspect it was. Speaking of, the crisp costumes and period styling by director Jack Haldoupis will make you long for the days when people actually dressed so elegantly. The simple but effective set evokes New York City at Christmastime. If you can’t get to the big city, taking in this show is the next-best option for a grown-up, yet sweet, Christmas celebration.

DANCE EVENT | Red Hot Holiday Ball
If learning how to swing dance is on your Christmas list this year, be sure to check out Groove Juice Swing’s 6th Annual Red Hot Holiday Ball on Friday, December 14. The holiday event, which runs 7-11 p.m., will be catered toward new swing dancers in the community. Along with free admission, you’ll also receive a free beginner lesson, snacks, and plenty of holiday cheer. After one lesson, you may find yourself in need of new dancing equipment. Fortunately, a raffle will feature gifts and certificates from local swing-dance organizations, South Wedge businesses, local musical artists, and more. No partner or experience is necessary. If you’re feeling particularly spirited and in the giving mood, feel free to bring some baked goods to share. Amid dancing the night away, you’ll also have the opportunity to watch debut performances from Groove Juice Swing, and Rochester’s new all-girl dance troupe, The Flower City Follies.

For those unfamiliar, the popular series is a BritishAmerican, post-Edwardian drama set in the fictional estate of Downton Abbey. The story follows the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants, and is rife with “wrenching social changes, romantic intrigues, and personal crises,” per the press release. Enthusiastic fans already scooped up seats for the noon and 4 p.m. screenings, which are now full, but additional screenings were added by the organizers.

DANCE | “PUSHinterPLAY”
Did you miss the chance to see PUSH Physical Theatre this fall at Rochester’s premiere First Niagara Fringe Festival? This week provides another opportunity to see the buzzed-about local group. On Friday, December 14, at 7:30 p.m. PUSH and the National Institute for the Deaf will debut two new works in progress, “Red Ball” and “Giovanni.” The two pieces are part of a new collaborative project, entitled “PUSHinterPLAY of Art, Culture and Technology,” that will be performed at RIT’s Robert F. Panara Theatre (1 Lomb Memorial Drive). The new show will incorporate technology like iPads and 3D projection, expanding PUSH’s hybrid art form even further. In fact, “Red Ball” was inspired by the use of iPads and other digital technology. “Giovanni,” based on Tomie dePaola’s book, “The Clown of God,” relates the French legend of an orphan, and formerly famous juggler, who sacrifices himself to bring smiles to a statue of Mary and baby Jesus during Christmas. This particular performance will utilize 3D projections onto scrims and innovative slowmotion juggling through PUSH’s own bit of magic. In addition to these new works, PUSH will bring back some Fringe performances, like “Natural World,” “Aviation,” and “Web.” Admission is free, and no tickets are necessary.

SPECIAL EVENT | “Let it Snow”
Despite seeming aesthetically opposed, both figure skating and ice hockey require dexterity, strength, and grace. Regardless, when I heard about an upcoming event that combines the two types of athletes in a choreographed performance, I pictured a funny beauty-and-the-beast-type mash-up. On Sunday, December 16, at 4 p.m., Premier Skating Academy and the Wease Cares Children’s Fund will present a choreographed figure-skating program entitled “Let it Snow.” The Rochester Americans hockey team, Amerks alumni, and local college hockey players will perform with the choreographed figure skaters. The event will take place at The Sports Centre at MCC (2700 Brighton-Henrietta Townline Road). Tickets cost $5 and all proceeds will benefit Wease Cares Children’s Fund. Purchase tickets ahead of time, or the day of the show at the front desk at The Sports Centre.

with your family, whether they’re the most loving family in the world or the worst. There is such a thing as a verbal-abuse whistle that I say you should bring to Christmas. You have to make a deal: you can get on my nerves, I can get on yours, so think before you speak. As soon as someone doesn’t, you blow that whistle.

Do you actually enjoy the holidays on a personal level?
I do! Yes, to be honest, now I can really pay for my party — I’m doing 16 shows! I’m like a drag queen on Halloween at Christmas time. If it’s the holidays, I’m working. What kind of an audience did you have in mind when you were writing this show? Who do you think will most appreciate John Waters’ take on Christmas?

The two may seem incongruous, but John Waters and Christmas are actually a perfect match. It’s the time of year where children are encouraged to sit on the laps of portly, oddly dressed strangers. Anyone who has seen “Pink Flamingos” can guess that Edith Massey’s character would likely be a big fan of eggnog. And that old seasonal chestnut was obviously written about Waters’ late, luminous star. “O night Divine”? A fitting tribute to Glenn Milstead. The man who brought you a drag queen eating actual dog feces, Kathleen Turner bludgeoning a woman to death with a leg of lamb, and other warm-and-fuzzy cinematic moments is coming to town this week to offer his unique take on how adults can survive the stressful holiday season. Pro tip: before heading off to grandma’s house, make sure to pack your
verbal-abuse whistle along with your hip flask. And also your back-up hip flask. ImageOut, Rochester’s LGBT Film & Video Festival, is bringing in the one-man show starring the cult-film icon, best-selling author, and overall provocateur. Waters recently did a phone interviewed with City and shared some of his thoughts on Christmas, the state of the independent film industry, and whether we’re now living in a John Waters world. An edited transcript of the conversation follows. CITY: You are an unabashed fan of Christmas. What about the holiday appeals to a man who has previously been referred to as “the Pope of trash”?
John Waters: Well, I’m the pope, aren’t I? That implies some sort of tradition. That implies some sort of religious fervor. I guess I like Christmas because it can be such an emotional rollercoaster. I try to talk about in my show about how you can’t avoid it — it is impossible to avoid it. No matter what religion you are, what sexual preference, rich, poor, Democrat, Republican, you can’t avoid it. So I’m trying to tell you how to get through it, how to deal with it. How to deal
My audience has always been the same for 40 years. It’s people who are smart, who are funny, who have a healthy skepticism about authority, and at the same time maybe don’t fit in their own minority. But they’ve always felt like being outsiders. I’m trying to tell them to be outlaws and insiders. Who wants to be an outsider anymore? Everybody wants to be. You’ve been reportedly working on a children’s Christmas film, called “Fruitcake,” for years…
Well, I haven’t been working on it, that’s the issue. I’ve been trying to get it made. So instead what I’ve been working on is a book, since I’ve had a lot more success in that world. “Role Models,” my last book, was a best seller. So I’m writing a book now about how I hitchhiked across America by myself in May. But yes, the children’s Christmas movie I’m still trying to get made. Who knows if I ever will? I mean, I’ve made 16 movies. It’s not like I haven’t spoken. On that note, you’ve spoken about how American independent cinema is in a really difficult position right now. Do you think that will change or improve any time soon?
It’s not in a bad state if you’re a young person starting out in cinema. It’s in a much better state for you, because they’re looking now for the next kid who will make a movie for $50,000. They weren’t when I was doing it, but now they are. The problem with me is I have routinely made independent movies that cost $5 million, which used to be thought of as a moderate price for an independent movie, a union movie with movie stars. I don’t want to go backward, I did that. I’m not going to be a faux revolutionary. continues on page 32

RECREATION | Christmas Bird Counts
The sweetness of birdsong is something that we perhaps take for granted in our daily hustle. For me, it has mostly become white noise unless I catch a few spare, slow moments for a walk. Many birds have already migrated toward warmer climates, but there are plenty of tough guys who’ll stick out the winter with us. Learn more about our area’s winter wildlife and help assess their numbers with one of the upcoming Christmas bird counts. The 38th annual Letchworth Silver Lake Christmas Bird Count will take place all day on Saturday, December 15, at Letchworth State Park in Castile. If you’re interested in participating, call Douglass Bassett at 493-3625 before the day of the event for a territory assignment. On Sunday, December 16, the 109th Rochester Christmas Bird Count will take place all day in a 16-mile radius centered at Dewey Avenue and Stone Road in Greece. Visit birding.aba.org and select Rochester to find a list of numbers of area leaders to call for more information. Inexperienced observers will be teamed up with the more experienced. A 7:30-9 p.m. tally will take place after a 6 p.m. dinner (bring money) held at the Charbroil Restaurant at the corner of Island Cottage Road and Edgemere Drive.

A movie about the making of a movie [ REVIEW ] by George Grella
“Hitchcock” (PG-13), directed by Sacha Gervasi Now playing
Long after his death, Alfred Hitchcock remains a surprisingly powerful presence in the cinema. Reruns of his extremely successful 1950’s television series turn up regularly on one of the cable film channels; a recent made-for-TV movie, “The Girl,” about his relationship with Tippi Hedren, who starred in “The Birds” and “Marnie,” now plays on HBO; and right on its heels, a theatrical feature, another movie about a Hitchcock movie, simply called “Hitchcock,”
has just opened. The director apparently constitutes a one-man cinema renaissance. Based on some of the immense amount of information about the best known and most written-about director in film history, “Hitchcock” deals with the production of “Psycho,” one of his most successful and important pictures, which appeared in 1960, capping the richest and most creative decade in his remarkable career. While showing the several kinds of difficulties he encountered in bringing Robert Bloch’s novel, based on the actual crimes of a particularly gruesome serial killer named Ed Gein, to the screen, it also delves into Hitch’s own personal idiosyncrasies and his relationship with his wife and collaborator, Alma Reville.

(Anthony Hopkins) created some innovative methods of circumventing the censors, including tricky camerawork and inspired visual metaphors; in fact, in some ways the censorship inspired some of his most inventive cinematic ploys. To avoid the sight of a knife actually penetrating a nude Janet Leigh (Scarlett Johansson) in the famous shower scene, for example, he employed dozens of quick cuts, depending on the power of suggestion and his own skill at audience manipulation. Arguing that it was essential to the plot, he also convinced the censors to allow an actual toilet — and, shockingly, a flush — for the first time in Hollywood history. We’ve come a long way. As the picture progresses, the making of “Psycho” displays some of the director’s well known fascination with violent death, sexual deviance, and icy blondes, along with some of his personal traits — a kind of sad voyeurism, the need to control his leading ladies, alcoholism, the constant substitution of food for sexual gratification. By frequently showing dreams and fantasies in which Hitch converses with Ed Gein, the script magnifies his idiosyncrasies into something like a dangerous pathology. Almost unrecognizable beneath pounds of prosthetic avoirdupois, Anthony Hopkins handles the character’s wit and drollery with a nice offhand skill, but rather exaggerates his emotional side into hysterical melodrama. Often speaking directly to the audience in the manner of the television show, he captures precisely the thick,

Throwing the switch [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

plummy voice, the carefully articulated speech, the asthmatic wheeze of the master in a performance that seems as much impersonation as acting. As Hitch’s neglected and longsuffering wife, Alma Reville, who wrote or consulted on many of her husband’s pictures, Helen Mirren looks a good deal more attractive than the original, but conveys Alma’s obvious intelligence and her perfectly understandable resentment at playing second fiddle to the great man. Her tentative, unconsummated relationship with a sycophantic screenwriter (Danny Huston) never seems convincing, except as an indication of her bitterness and unhappiness. Aside from dramatizing material from the several biographies and the scores of critical studies, much of the success of “Hitchcock” grows out of the careful casting of a variety of actors as the crew of accomplished people who helped bring Hitchcock’s vision to the screen. Scarlett Johansson makes a quite acceptable Janet Leigh and Jessica Biel in a blonde wig very closely resembles Vera Miles, the actress Hitchcock believed “betrayed” him by resisting his efforts to control her career. As Anthony Perkins, the immortal Norman Bates of “Psycho,” James D’Arcy delivers the most convincing impersonation of them all — he looks uncannily like the actor and speaks with the same nervous hesitancy, the same winning sincerity, the same quirky speech rhythms and twitches. If “Hitchcock” affects his career as “Psycho” did Perkins’s, D’Arcy may be doomed to playing an assortment of neurotics and crazed killers.
Generally speaking, there are three distinct types of fantasy stories. The most blatant are the tales that take place entirely in a make-believe world filled with fantastical sights and populated by inhuman beings that could never exist in reality. Then there are the stories set in the real world but which add extraordinary elements like magic or supernatural beings. The final variety are the most subtle, taking place in the real world and focusing on the actions of realistic people, the fantasy element making itself known through characters that behave in ways that real people most likely wouldn’t. These are stories that tend to present the world the way most of us wish it was. “The Other Son,” a sensitive — if often contrived — drama falls into this last category. When 17-year-old Joseph (Jules Sitruk), an introverted aspiring musician, submits to a routine blood test as part of preparations for his mandatory service in

the Israeli military, doctors are bewildered to discover that the boy’s blood type doesn’t match that of his parents. A follow-up test confirms that he couldn’t possibly be the son of Orith and Alon Silberg, who have raised him from birth. Investigation leads to the revelation that in the chaotic aftermath of a missile attack that hit the hospital where Orith had given birth, doctors inadvertently switched her newborn baby with that of Leila and Said Al-Bezaaz, a Palestinian couple who were delivering at the same time. Orith and Alon’s infant, meanwhile, was raised on the West Bank, and has grown into gregarious pre-med student Yacine (Mehdi Debhi). Each set of parents are brought together to be informed of the mistake, forcing them all to decide how best to cope with the news and how, or even if, they should tell their sons. From this unlikely setup, “The Other Son” examines as realistically as possible the ramifications of finding out that the child you’ve raised for 17 years isn’t actually your flesh and blood. Of course, the two boys eventually do find out the truth, and despite resistance from both fathers, the boys’ natural curiosity about one another and the life they may have lead slowly draws their families together, forcing them to confront the prejudices that have been ingrained in them through generations of conflict and hatred. On their own, each boy crosses the border to attempt to get to know his birth family, eying one another alternately with jealousy and brotherly affection as they strike up a friendly relationship. It’s in this middle section, as each boy is thrown into an identity crisis, that the strong, charismatic performances by Sitruk and Debhi really shine. The switched-at-birth plotline has been done so many times, it’s a wonder that no one has thought to place the
children on opposite sides of the IsraeliPalestian conflict until now. That very real tension adds a weight to the story that it otherwise might not have had. Though the premise seems ripe for over-the-top melodrama, French director and co-writer Lorraine Lévy does her best to ground things in an honesty that keeps the film from becoming overly preachy. Even so, as the film reaches an ending that veers ever-so-slightly into schmaltz territory, the tale ultimately boils down to a “Can’t we all just get along?” plea for tolerance. Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” is
already one of the most popular fantasy tales of all time, with countless cinematic adaptations — everyone from Patrick Stewart to Vanessa Williams has filled the miserly shoes of Ebenezer (or Ebony) Scrooge — so any new variation on the tale has to prove its worth by bringing something fresh to the table. “Scrooge & Marley,” screening for one night next week at The Little, adds a campy, queer twist to the proceedings that doesn’t quite justify its existence, but it’s got enough rough-around-the-edges, let’sput-on-a-show charm to get you into the holiday spirit. This time around Scrooge is played by David Pevsner as a bitter old queen running a gay piano bar in downtown Chicago. Pevsner takes the opportunity to chew the scenery like it’s his job, referring to his clientele as “the riff raff” and barking lines like “caring doesn’t pay the bills!” before the inevitable change of heart following visits by the infamous ghosts of Christmases Past, Present, and Future. The Ghost of Christmas Present (played by “Make Me a Supermodel”’s Ronnie Kroell) has Scrooge take a couple whiffs of poppers in order to travel back in time, so that should tell you right away if you’re in the target demographic for this film.

Friday, Dec. 14, 8 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 16, 2 p.m.
Revisiting his role as Father O’Malley from Going My Way, Bing Crosby produces what could be the highlight of his career. O’Malley and Sister Mary Benedict (Ingrid Bergman) disagree on how to run St. Mary’s Elementary School, but through every adversity they work to find common ground. When tragedy strikes close to the school, it brings them closer than ever. (Leo McCarey, US 1945, 126 min.)

We are what we eat. But do we really “see” what we are eating? With almost no dialogue and a gorgeous cinematography, this haunting exploration of European food factories lays bare the ethical dilemmas of nutrition in the industrial world. There is no advocacy message here, neither for organic farming nor animal rights; images are allowed to speak for themselves, with a sobriety and a compassion rarely seen in a work of non-fiction. (Unser täglich Brot, Nikolaus Geyrhalter, Austria 2005, 92 min., German and Arabic w/subtitles)

But they’re looking. If you’re a young person, it is the very best time ever to get your movie made, because the equipment — everybody could make a movie on their cell phone and it could end up playing in a movie theater. So, that’s good! I’m not complaining. Because if they said to me now, “You could make ‘Fruitcake,’” I don’t know what I’d do. I’m booked for the next year and a half.

TO FIND OUT ABOUT OUR
Switching gears, you’ve always had an interest in documenting extreme human behavior and the fringes of human society. Given that shows like “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” are cultural touchstones, and that Kim Kardashian became a pop-culture icon largely because of a sex tape, are we now living in a John Waters world?
Here’s the thing: I refuse to know who the Kardashians are. Every time I get to an article about them, I turn the page. I do know who Honey Boo Boo is, although I’ve never seen the show. I’m against reality television. Not that you shouldn’t watch it; I don’t care if you watch it. I have no interest because it seems mean spirited. It’s asking you to look down on your subject matter. And really, who is the fool? They’re making money and you’re wasting your time. My movies, even if you hate them, I don’t think you can say that I asked you to look down on my characters. I asked you to look up. And that’s the big difference. I don’t believe that reality-show fame is real fame. I know that many people love reality TV. But I find something about it is distasteful in a bad way. It’s bad bad taste. It’s asking the audience to feel superior. I never feel superior to my subject matter. You spent a portion of your summer hitchhiking across America. Why did you do it?
It was 11 days in May. It was an adventure! I used to hitchhike a lot when I was young. I wanted to give up control. I wanted to see, How far does fame go? I wanted to write another book, and the first two parts of the book are little novels of me imagining in my fantasy the very best that could happen between rides, and the very worst that could happen. And then I did it for real. Did you enjoy the experience?

Yes, but you’ll have to read the book to get the details. That was the coming attractions, in case you didn’t know. And I hope it’s better than that, because now when I go to the movies, the trailers aren’t coming attractions. They’re warnings not to see the films. Looking back on all your projects, stretching back to even before “Pink Flamingos,” do you think those works still stand up? Would you remake any of them if you could?
I wouldn’t remake any of them, no. Well, I guess it would be funny to see “Pink Flamingos” remade a children’s animated movie. Without the sex it would work. For a while there all the children’s best-seller lists were gross — you know, “snot this” and grossout battles. And that’s what “Pink Flamingos” is. Divine was a clown. Divine was a “Jackass” boy before Johnny Knoxville. So, I think those movies were kind of innocent, if you took the sex stuff out. And believe me, nobody was masturbating watching them. So you could take the sex out without any trouble. You mention that Divine was kind of a “Jackass” boy before there was “Jackass.” That ties back to my earlier question. Do you think that our society now has caught up to what you were doing back then? What was cutting edge has now became mainstream?
Bad taste has become American humor, in a way. I think a lot of times, though, Hollywood makes bad-taste movies that are not funny. They just try to be gross too hard. It’s easy to be gross. I was trying to be funny, I was trying to be witty. I was trying to change how you think about something by making you laugh. I’m for some of those. I like “The Hangover,” I like “Bridesmaids.” But a lot of times I think they’re not so funny. But I don’t begrudge them. I wish my movies made that much money. But my movies, embarrassingly, only really played in wealthy, intelligent neighborhoods. I always wanted them to play in grindhouses and drive-ins, but they flopped there, because there was irony. People didn’t go see exploitation movies because they thought they were so bad they were good, they went to see them because they thought they were sexy. They weren’t looking at the outfits in “Faster Pussycat,” they were masturbating. There’s a big difference. What inspires John Waters now?
I read seven newspapers a day. I’m always interested in people’s behaviors, and the behavior of people who think they’re normal but act the most insane is what draws me the most. Those are the characters I’ve made movies about. You’re an indie icon, but you’ve experienced some significant mainstream success. As you go forward as an artist, where do you see yourself fitting in in that spectrum?
I’m just trying to keep going and make the next thing. I never think this one’s going to be more commercial or less commercial, or this one’s going to be mainstream. I never plan that. I just make the next thing I’m obsessed by. And I’m thankful that I’ve been able to have this career for 40 years. People say that art is what you get away with, and I’ve been getting away with it for a long time.

Selling Homes one yard at a time.
One of the most picturesque communities in the Finger Lakes region is the village of Naples, nestled in the hills, just south of Canandaigua Lake. Its remarkable architecture, tree-lined streets, and quaint village business district have been enjoyed by residents and visitors, alike, for decades. Many of the historic homes here have been rediscovered and rehabilitated by owners who were drawn to these buildings by their ornate details and outstanding craftsmanship. The Queen Anne style house at 10 Cohocton Street is an excellent example of this type of careful rehabilitation, carried out over the past 31 years by the current owners. The lovely, 1880s residence is one of the signature houses on this highly visible street. Its elaborate woodwork, porch, and window details are greatly enhanced by the historic paint colors on the exterior. The elegant front door, with original hardware and doorbell, is highlighted by a beautiful stained glass window, that, together with similar windows on the staircase, bring in ample light to the handsome front hall. The front staircase has a spectacular and unusual banister with spindles that echo the Eastlake style of woodwork so popular in the last quarter of the nineteenth century. The first floor includes two parlors and a dining room, where hardwood floors, decorative moldings, and an elegant fireplace create a welcoming area for family and
friends. The dining room is further highlighted by a large bay window, window seat, and elaborate spindled frieze that dates from the original construction of the house. The spacious kitchen features two large, early-20th-century wall cabinets that provide both storage space and historic interest in this room. A modern laundry room, powder room, and rear staircase to the second floor are located just off the kitchen. The second floor has four bedrooms, including a two-room master suite. The full bathroom on the second floor is a spacious and relaxing refuge that combines historic details with modern conveniences. A walk-up attic and a full basement offer additional storage. This .35-acre property includes a secluded brick patio at the rear of the house and a partially fenced yard. The distinctive, gambrel-roofed barn retains its original detailing and interior. A modern, two-car garage has been added to the barn. Listed at $145,900, this 2,292-square-foot house is ready and waiting for a new owner to move in. It is listed by Kenn Murray of Nothnagle Realtors (585) 374-6560. by Cynthia Howk Cynthia is the Architectural Research Coordinator at The Landmark Society of Western New York.

All persons having an interest in the real property described in the foreclosure list are hereby notified that the filing of the list constitutes the commencement by the City of Rochester of an action in the Supreme Court, Monroe County, to foreclose the tax liens therein described by an action in rem and that the list constitutes a notice of pendency of action and a complaint by the City of Rochester against each parcel of land therein described to enforce the satisfaction of such tax liens. This action is brought against the real property only. No personal judgment will be entered in this action for the delinquent taxes, assessments, fees or other charges. A copy of the foreclosure list has been filed in the office of the City Treasurer and will remain open for public inspection up to and including February 19, 2013, which is the redemption deadline date. Any person may on or before that date redeem any parcel on the foreclosure list by paying to the City Treasurer the amount of all delinquent taxes, assessments, fees and other charges stated on the foreclosure list, plus the $155.00 charge referred to above, plus accrued interest and late payment charges. Any person having any interest in any parcel on the foreclosure list may, at any time up to the redemption deadline date, serve a verified notice of interest or an answer upon the Corporation Counsel setting forth in detail the nature and amount of his interest or any defense or objection to the foreclosure. The notice of interest or answer must also be filed in the office of the Monroe County Clerk. Where a valid notice of interest is served, the parcel will be held for a foreclosure auction pursuant to Section 9-143 of the City Charter. Any person who fails to redeem or to serve a notice of interest or an answer by the redemption deadline date shall be barred thereafter from asserting his interest in the pending foreclosure action, and judgment in foreclosure may be granted without regard for, and in extinguishment of, the interest of any such person.
