Free Streaming Event -- May 28, 2022

Three years ago, I packed my car with cameras, microphones, tripods and a camera crane. I left right after work and made my way from the midwest to the hills of rural, northeastern Pennsylvania. The location of my journey was not even on a map -- it was church in the small, forgotten town of Lynn. 

For nineteen years, the Old Lynn Church was the home to one of the most prestigious concert series in modern, acoustic folk music. And this was their last show.

This Sacred Place: The Story of Old Lynn Concerts is not only about that last show, but about the history of the building and the music that echoes there.  

In the spirit of the Old Lynn Concert Series, which was free and open to the public, we will be streaming the documentary free on Saturday night, May 28, 2022 on our Facebook page at 7pm Eastern. 

This is a special, never-before-seen event:

  • The film will be introduced by the director, Bruce David Janu
  • After the film, Bruce will introduce and screen three deleted scenes not yet seen
So join us on the Bell, Book and Camera Productions Facebook page to tune into this special event. The documentary, with the additional scenes will then be available the entire Memorial Day weekend on YouTube as well.
