    What is the A.J.O.E. Lorient? Is that also where the movies are shown?

    Good question? However I am also looking forward to the answer.

    Yes, you can see the moviegoers lining up in front of the St Joseph’s School

    Movies take place on the AJOE tennis court, projected onto the back wall.

    Not sure if they still play tennis there but it definitely was a tennis court. They now have a recent state-of-the-art digital projector and very good sound system... we show some of the film festival movies there every year. Far cry from the old days when there was an antiquated 35mm projector that took half a film and there was an intermission to change the reel !

    AJOE is a non-profit island association that hosts lots of activities for kids, including the Reefer Surf Club which uses the colorful surf shack across from JoJo Burger...
    some really good surfers have come out of that club !

    This summer projectionist from many years ago can relate to Buster Keaton's classic Sherlock Jr (1924) - which looked at a projectionist's world (good clip here) well before Cinema Paradiso ... the Inner Circle (trailer here) featured a projectionist job for which one would not apply (good clip here)... never having gotten into the groove with Madonna, those are my favorite projectionist movies...

    Shine, the plastic seats are seats.
    Rain, the plastic seats are shelter.
    The movie plays on.

    It’ll be interesting to hear / read reviews of the dance performances. As I recall last year, the Paris company could not attend. Instead there were dancers from New York, & the reviews were “mixed,” as the saying goes.

    For 25 Euros- dancers from the Paris Opera Ballet- pretty impressive!
    sorry reviews weren’t so good last year.

    We have attended the Ballet on the Quay last two years since Irma. I felt the dancers from NY were excellent last year. I would not have cast anything negative upon the lovely dancers from NY. We are suffering withdrawal not watching the dancers this year. We pushed our annual January family vacation back one week for business reasons. Missing the dancers....

    I know how much you enjoyed that performance and your family’s appreciation of dance. Perhaps things will work out for a future trip...you gotta believe.

    This year's dancers from Paris were extraordinary... and considering the Paris Opera is on strike, it was great to have the dancers here! The lighting at AJOE was very good as well, and as they say in A Chorus Line "everything was beautiful at the ballet.."

    So pleased to hear your review Ellen. Next year, we intend to make it there just after the new year for the Ballet performance. I would believe AJOE is a much more conducive environment for the Ballet. Made it difficult for the dancers in the wind environment on the quay.
