I spent my high school years on the south end of Whidbey Island in the Puget Sound. There isn’t a whole lot to do on “The Rock” (as we called it in high school after the Michael Bay film about Alcatraz) and so I spent a lot of time at the local movie theater The Clyde. Seems like I wasn’t the only one spending a lot of time at the movies. South Whidbey has produced a fair amount of filmmakers (many of whom I babysat growing up). Maybe it is something in the water? The Clyde owners, Blake and Lynn Wileford (who also happen to be my parents’ neighbors) recently posted about all the Clyde “Kids” who are making a name for themselves in the film industry. I love that I am still a “kid” in their eyes. You can also see this post about Clyde projectionist Dan Gregory who, as you may have guessed, also happens to be my Dad. Love those small town connections.
