Dinner and a Movie

Silver Spring Gateway 4th Annual Dinner and a Movie night at Los Arrieros!

This year, Silver Spring media maven Richard Jaeggi has curated another wonderful evening of short films. The criteria for submission was that the film had to somehow be related to Silver Spring. This night is always a huge hit, so please plan on getting to Los Arrieros as early as possible to grab a table and get your orders in!

When: Thursday, January 18th 7 – 9pm (get there early and grab a table!)
Where: Los Arrieros: 7926 Georgia Ave., Silver Spring Md. 20910

This 10 vignette piece depicts the Shepherd Park community. The vignettes tell the story of this unique, historic neighborhood through the eyes of its residents.

The video is the culmination of a four-week summer project in which fourteen local teens used microphones and video cameras to interview other young people who come to the new downtown to relax and socialize.

“Inappropriate” 5 Min
"Inappropriate" is a locally shot music video for one of the songs on Sean Cooney’s new album "Dandelion in Distress". The video features native S.S. actress Lilly Hamburger, and native S.S. musicians/Blair alums Sean, Cory Choy, and Luke Allen with animation by Sean.

This is a trailer for a horror short shot on the grounds of the Forest Glen Seminary at the end of summer 2004, with a cast and crew from Silver Spring.
