Jimmy Carter's Birthday Celebration Live Event - Saturday, October 1st!

It's the Annual Jimmy Carter Jamboree celebration to honor and recognize our 39th President and his work at The Carter Center.

The event will hosted by CMCM member/producer Barbara McVeigh, live at the Community Media Center of Marin on Saturday, October 1st from 1:00 - 4:00 PM, joined by ABC Host Spencer Christian!

The event will include screenings of the great "Crisis of Confidence Speech", forums from The Carter Center, footage of the last six years of musicians and other community leaders of Marin and beyond coming together to celebrate a president who has stood by principles of peace, human rights, health, mental health, housing, respect and so many other values that we value.

We have Carter bumper stickers and flower seeds from Rosalynn Carter to help usher in the butterfly trail of hope across the country!

To date, we have hosted film screenings, earned two city proclamations, one county proclamation and a California State resolution in honor of Carter. Musicians, businesses and teachers have contributed to the efforts to honor this president whose spirit could "Jimmy" us into one of peace and joy! Let it rip! We believe the best is yet to come!

Cheese Theatre 200th Episode | May 12 at 10 PM on CH26

After 200 Episodes, Bill Arney’s “Cheese Theatre” Still Looks Sharp

Becoming a member of the Community Media Center of Marin in 2011, Arney was encouraged to host his own show. Eight years later, on May 12, 2018, Marin TV will air the 200th episode of Arney’s own Saturday night treat, “Cheese Theatre.”

Arney thinks of “Cheese Theatre” as a tongue-in-cheek version of Turner Classic Movies. “​It's the commentary that makes a show like this unique,” he says. “Who would watch TCM without the intro and closing remarks by the host?​ As he reflects on producing and hosting 200 episodes, Arney admits, “​I did not expect to get this far.“ Originally, I hoped to make it five years. Now that we are finishing up Season 8, I feel like it could go on forever. The only limitation is movie availability, but it seems there are plenty of them out there, waiting to be rediscovered.” It would seem “Cheese Theatre” is aging well.
