“When Tony died it sort of pulled the carpet out from under everyone’s feet,” said Film Club President Sandi Knakal. “This is very much a family-oriented establishment. We would like to continue that legacy and we know we can do it with the support of the community.”

Keeping the Crandell running won’t be easy. It needs a new roof before winter and the old reel-to-reel projector has persistent problems. It would be easy to toss the old projector or raise ticket prices at the Crandell, but the film club won’t. It would be easy for the Main Street Pub and Local 111 to get their produce from Sysco at a lower price than the farmers offer, but they don’t. It would be easy for Time and Space Limited to just stick to showing movies and broadcasts from the Met, the things that make money, but the organization feels they must do more.

Columbia County has rich soil and is still dominated by farms and farmers, and while not everyone has their hands in the dirt, throughout the hills and fields, along dusty wooded roads and crowded city streets, an agrarian work ethic seems to beat beneath the ground, one that looks forward while holding tightly to what remains strong in the county’s past.
