Old House Soul showing at Jane Pickens in Newport

Friday September 24th

Old House Soul (50 minutes)and Q and A with filmmakers.

Don Manley and Michel Schtakleff's documentary examines the life and work of Steve Tyson Sr. (1942-2008), a Rhode Island preservationist whose company is responsible for restoring and preserving hundreds of historic buildings and houses across Rhode Island.

This info just in from his son: "The movie "Old House Soul" is being shown at the Jane Pickens on Friday at 4:00 pm with a short Q&A with the directors after. It runs about 50 minutes. It is being shown as part of Doris Duke Days. It premiered last month at the RI film festival for one showing. This is going to be the second showing. I think they are in the process of getting it on RI PBS. After that they may do some limited distribution. But this will probably be the last time to see it on the big screen."
