As one of the most iconic hotels in Walt Disney World, Disney's Contemporary Resort remains a popular destination, in no small part, because it was one of the two original hotels on property when the Magic Kingdom first opened in 1971. Disney's Contemporary Resort is also noteworthy because of the monorail station and track that passes through the Grand Canyon Concourse of the hotel, as well as the gigantic mural by prominent Disney artist Mary Blair on display.

One year ago I announced that my new documentary about the Monarch Theatre had been greenlit - a largely unknown (outside of my hometown of Medicine Hat, Alberta) historic cinema with a really unique backstory.
No surprises, it's come to define a lot of my 2022.
Production updates, exploration, title reveals, behind the scenes, media releases, etc. It's been fun to share parts of this process (if for no other reason) because uncovering the history of a century old cinema, its origins and evolution, etc. lead me down a few rabbit holes that I needed help climbing out of (so to speak).
