Club celebrates 10 years of classic films & friendship

An East Tennessee movie group is celebrated ten years of classic flicks with a showing of the 1940 classic "The Mark of Zorro."

Knoxville resident Jeff Gordon started the Cresthill Cinema Club in 2004 after moving to Knoxville from New York.

Gordon typically shows a 1940's or 50's movie on 16 millimeter reel-to-reel film in his apartment complex's clubhouse.

To celebrate the anniversary, they started the night with a dinner at the Bearden Banquet Hall and finished it off with the film.

After ten years, Gordon says he must have seen a thousand people come and go.

"It is the most rewarding experience of my life. This is a labor of love for me. I so enjoy doing it, but the people get so much out of it and have become friends with one another, it's just amazing. It's touching to me, but it's extremely rewarding, and a heck of a lot of fun," said Gordon.

For three years, Gordon was the film program coordinator at the Knoxville Museum of Art. He puts on ten showings a year for the club. They're free to see and the club has no membership dues. Go to this website for more information.
