MEETING SCHEDULE FOR THE SONS OF THE DESERT NYC
Date: Friday, September 22, 2023
Time: 7:30pm to 10:30pm
The New York Founding Tent meets monthly at The Church of the Transfiguration, founded in 1848 and home of The Episcopal Actors' Guild since 1923. "The Little Church Around the Corner," as it is commonly known, has welcomed theatrical legends including Edwin Booth, Joseph Jefferson, Basil Rathbone, Tallulah Bankhead, Joan Fontaine, Rex Harrison, and Charlton Heston, so we are in great company!
One East 29th Street
(Between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue)
New York, NY 10016
There is no formal dress code as there was at our former location of The Players, but please dress respectably. We can bring refreshments and snacks, but no alcoholic beverages are permitted on the premises. Also, it is our responsibility to clean up after our meeting and leave the room as we found it.
Our September Film Lineup
We will be running a feature film starring a team we've NEVER run before: Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey in "Cockeyed Cavaliers," which costars Thelma Todd, Billy Gilbert, Charlie Hall and Noah Beery. Bert Wheeler used to be a member of The Lambs Club and he was founder John McCabe's favorite. In addition, we’ll be running Betty Boop in “Betty in Blunderland” and finally... Laurel & Hardy in "Come Clean" — always a great one!
We ask you to PLEASE wear your membership badges in your holder, as we are starting to check. And if you want to bring a guest, you can for a one time fee of $5. We will give them a membership form and if they want to join our group, we will CREDIT their guest fee towards the membership dues. Remember to ask Grand Sheik Jack Roth for a form!
