The Visalia View

“Trading Places” with George Folsey, Jr!

Trading PlacesSometimes life is all about who you know. This is the premise of the hilarious 1983 movie, “Trading Places” that stars Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd. This is also how Visalia is lucky to have the movie’s Executive Producer, George Folsey, Jr join us at the Fox Theater for a pre-show chat about the making of the movie.

The CVB tapped into some personal connections (See? It’s all about who you know!) and invited Folsey, Jr to Visalia to introduce the movie that is being screened as part of the Visalia Fox Theater’s Throwback Thursday film series. Lucky attendees will hear a little background info on the filming of this movie as well as other blockbusters that Folsey worked on. Movies like “Animal House,” “The Blues Brothers,” and “An American Werewolf in London” were just a few of his projects.

So we hope that Visalia comes out and supports this event. Perhaps we can talk Folsey into coming back again to do the intro to another of his great movies!

Movie is on Thursday, March 2 at 6:30. Pre show chat with Folsey will begin about 6:10. Come early and get your popcorn. Then settle into your seat for some fun stories!
