Now in our thirty-third year of movie parties bringing classic cartoons, serials, B-movies, short subjects,
and cinematic oddities to new generations of movie fans - and movie fans to be!
The In The Balcony website was established in 2005 to bring news and info to classic movie fans and friends.

We do not get the opportunity to review a lot of film books here in the Balcony, although we DO read a lot of the darn things. The biography of Henry "Oh, THAT guy!" Brandon is cause for celebration, and we take a look at it. Take a break from singin' opera in the streets and read!


Well, it's a brand new year and we've spiffed up the Balcony with the February Calendar, a new Laurel & Hardy Fun House, and some new reviews. So go read already!

The Vanishing Shadow serial coming to Blu-ray from VCI! Stay tuned for more info!
