Evening With The Stars

Yes, that's right it was Academy Awards night at Menagerie Manor. As a child MeMa's parents owned and operated a theatre in the small town of Clatskanie. Clatskanie has grown and faltered over the years but actually has one traffic light. The Avalon Theatre sadly has gone but MeMas love of the movies and Hollywood stars is still alive and strong.

When the Avalon closed for good I took out a portion of the old seats and the old cigarette stand came from the projection room.

One of the rooms we added to the Manor's collection of thirteen was its own theatre room. And so on the night of the Academy Awards you can find us comfy in our chairs, feet up and refreshments on our trays whilst cheering on our favorite stars.

Our Sophie kept one eye open from her favorite pillow

Although the photo only shows our feet we were quite thrilled watching our favorite stars, Miss Betty not so much.


  1. It looks like you have a good set up there. The dogs look like they are enjoying it too.

  2. That very kewl, I love the antigue cigarette stand! I am a big movie buff, I have about 400 DVD's in my collection and about 150 vhs tapes in my collection! One can never have enough movies!
