Cheese Theatre 200th Episode | May 12 at 10 PM on CH26

After 200 Episodes, Bill Arney’s “Cheese Theatre” Still Looks Sharp

Becoming a member of the Community Media Center of Marin in 2011, Arney was encouraged to host his own show. Eight years later, on May 12, 2018, Marin TV will air the 200th episode of Arney’s own Saturday night treat, “Cheese Theatre.”

Arney thinks of “Cheese Theatre” as a tongue-in-cheek version of Turner Classic Movies. “​It's the commentary that makes a show like this unique,” he says. “Who would watch TCM without the intro and closing remarks by the host?​ As he reflects on producing and hosting 200 episodes, Arney admits, “​I did not expect to get this far.“ Originally, I hoped to make it five years. Now that we are finishing up Season 8, I feel like it could go on forever. The only limitation is movie availability, but it seems there are plenty of them out there, waiting to be rediscovered.” It would seem “Cheese Theatre” is aging well.

Youth Exploring Sea Level Rise Science Program

CMCM has joined a collaborative project with Marin County’s Community Development Agency, the Welcome Center and Coravai, (an organization connecting the worlds of environmental science and policy) launching the Youth Exploring Sea Level Rise Science (YESS) program to produce a short documentary.

In this Spanish-language documentary, youth leaders from the YESS project will interview people in the Canal neighborhood of San Rafael, and share the work they and other Bay Area students are doing to document sea level rise vulnerability and spark conversations about community resilience to major flood events.
Stay tuned for further updates.

CMCM Highlights of 2014 & Plans for 2015

CMCM is pleased to share some highlights of our activities over the past year -- and plans for the New Year:

We installed production equipment in San Anselmo and Larkspur and will start 2015 with ten different county and city governments and agencies cablecasting their meetings on the Government Channel - many live!

With so much government content, we are requesting a second government channel from our cable providers.

We continued our Summer Sports Broadcast Camp and had a great group of youth produce ten live cablecasts of San Rafael Pacifics Baseball Games.

We are launching the Marin Media Corp to train youth and engage them in community productions.

We'll begin to upgrade our aging field equipment and bring the studio up to full HD production capability so our community productions will look even better this time next year!

Most significantly, we were successful in securing temporary bridge support funding from the MTA which ensures for the first time that CMCM has a firm foundation upon which to build.

Your support is essential to our work and helps us expand our efforts into the communities of Marin. All donations are tax deducible.
