Hello VRT-ers and VIDEOLIB-ers

Due to the great interest in the VRT "Dinner and a Movie" event, The VRT
board has decided to change locations to accommodate more people and
offer a greater variety of menu options.
The dinner will now take place at Anthony's Pier 66
at 5:30, (not 6:00!)

"Anthony’s Pier 66 is located on the downtown Seattle waterfront in the
same building as Anthony’s Bell St. Diner and Anthony’s Fish Bar.
Anthony’s Pier 66 is a premier Northwest seafood restaurant with
panoramic views of the downtown Seattle skyline, Mt. Rainier, and
Elliott Bay's boating activity. Anthony's Pier 66 features fresh
Northwest seafood simply prepared, in a contemporary, sophisticated
waterfront setting."

Menu: http://www.anthonys.com/restaurants/menus/pier66.html

A number of taxis will be available to take people to the Northwest Film
Forum at 7:30.
The price for VRT people who are going to the Northwest Film Forum is
$5.00 per person.

The film portion of the evening will remain the same. Only the time and
place for the dinner have changed.

See below for additional details.

Please RSVP by January 15th to me, Steve Brantley
at jbrant1@uic.edu.

(If you have already told me you are coming you need not write again.)

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
