The BNHG goes to Zoom Until we can all be together again in one big room--and we all hope that will be sooner rather than later-- we are arranging a number of terrific programs that will come to you via Zoom over the next few months: Our first presentation on September 22,Bloomingdale Goes to the Movies, was presented by our own amazing triumvirate: Jim Mackin, Gil Tauber and Dan Armstrong, about the life and death of 17 local theaters. A recording of this presentation is now available at ourPast Events page. You will be amazed by the images of these movie palaces that Jim, Gil and Dan collected for their powerpoint.
