Penn Cinema in Lititz, PA is that rare independent theater that provides a first-rate movie-going experience while also being commercially successful. Managing partner Penn Ketchum and film buyer Andy Tuzzino are the brains, brawn, and sense of humor behind much of that success, and this week we get to sit down with these two Lancaster County residents for the second time in Lancast history.

The first episode with Penn and Andy, released roughly one year prior to this episode, covered how Penn Cinema began as well as giving a preview of 2009’s summer movies.

This time around Penn and Andy begin with a look back at the memorable films from the past twelve months, including their thoughts on the rise of 3D in the movie industry. In the second half of the show we get a new summer movie preview for 2010, as well as the inside scoop on the IMAX theater Penn Cinema is building, which will open this November.

This episode is longer than usual, but that’s because Penn and Andy are so much fun to talk to.

Support for this episode of The Lancast has been provided by Karlo Photography, Meteor Tower Films, PhotOlé, Lancaster County Art Association, and the Rumschpringe Short Film Festival, taking place June 4th and 5th at the Theater of the Seventh Sister.
