It was very cold on New Year’s Day, but supporters of the Provincetown Film Society were undeterred.

Movie fans were outside — in numbers — to celebrate the unveiling of the new marquee at Waters Edge Cinema. The Society runs the moviehouse, the Provincetown International Film Festival, and other programs. The new marquee design features the Society’s branding and colors (blue, yellow, and orange).


Revelers at the event — some of which was held indoors — included Provincetown Film Society CEO Christine Walker; former Film Society board member Jane Harper and her wife, Christie Hardwick; board members Franc Castro and Shawn Nightingale; and benefactors of the marquee, Jeanne Leszczynski and Diane DiCarlo.
