Hudson in the New Yorker
The online version of the New Yorker just posted a video by Sky Dylan-Robbins about the plight of independent movie houses trying to transition to digital equipment: "A Crossroads for Independent Cinema." The film, which explores the ramifications of abandoning the century-old technology of film, features Hudson's own Bruce Mitchinson and Fairview Cinema 3, our hometown theater just over the border in Greenport. Gossips even makes a cameo appearance.
This blog takes its name from the 1850 novel by Hudson author Alice B. Neal. The original Gossips of Rivertown cast a gimlet eye on Hudson society in the mid-19th century. More than a century and a half later, the new Gossips carries on the spirit of the original, but in a different genre and with a different focus.
