the stacks a film night in queens
Today we check in with The Stacks and the Queens Stack as they enjoy a movie night with friends along with a holiday inspired walk to spread the word of Stack-Up! Read on to check out the details of this festive evening.
To celebrate Boxing Day (or at least avoid the post-holiday letdown), the Queens Stack held a movie night featuring the 1963 Hammer classic film, “These Are The Damned.” Several stack members and a few other invited guests gathered around to enjoy snacks and watch the film.
Local film historian, Keith Crocker, graciously shared a few words about the movie, which combined elements of film noir, horror, and science fiction. It’s a story of children, exposed to radiation who are to be used as weapons in the cold war.
Afterward, the group took a short walk to the famous “Christmas in Jamaica Estates” house. In a neighborhood that has relatively little in the way of Christmas displays, this house can practically be seen from outer space.
It’s a display put on by a former Marine in honor of his wife (RIP). Complete with a coffee and hot chocolate station, it attracts visitors from all over. The Queens Stack certainly enjoyed the evening and gave out Stack-Up fliers and wristbands.
What an amazing night in Queens! Way to Stack Up and the Christmas in Jamaica Estates house just sound amazing. Thanks for sharing the story.
