On a highly personal note: As of this writing (March 14, 2015), the building I have rented and occupied for 20 years at 37 North Front Street is for sale. I do not know what will happen with my future residency here, but if I need to leave, this may be the last Chaplin show for awhile due to lack of location, unless I find a new appropriate venue in Kingston for next year. If you have not seen this Chaplin collection during the past 4 annual shows, now may be your last chance!
