Film History

Welcome Dreammakers, to THE CINEMARQUEE'S FILM HISTORY CAFE: ... where all dreams are possible and where Heroes and Villans that were, always will be. Sit back now in a soft lounge chair, with your favorite merlot or cappuccino and a favorite friend, and drift with the fog, filling your imagination with the theatrical dreams that were and always will be. We Actors, Playwrights, Screenwriters and Filmmakers are creators of worlds, dreammakers and sculptors of the imaginary, carving characters and worlds out of thought, and bringing forth through the magic of illusion ...that which might be, and for two hours of precious ... if but for a moment.
