He began his career as an usher at the Calvin Theatre in Northhampton, MA, and worked for National Amusements since 1962. His life long passion was studing, collecting, and sharing every aspect of the motion picture industry.

John oversaw the Showcase in one of my properties (Eastfield Mall-Springfield). It was my annual treat to take John to lunch and chat about new and classic films and the business in general. He was a true gent. I'm sorry I didn't hear of his passing until well after the fact. RIP
