Sit with J'mel at the Movies

Did you know J'mel loved movies? If you didn't know that then this probably isn't for you. 

If you went to movies with J'mel you know the experience didn't stop after the credits, because discussions, arguments, and nerdy stuff happened before and after a J'matinee. 

One of the places J'mel saw and created movies was the Sidewalk Film Festival in downtown B'ham. Right now they're building a theater in downtown Birmingham. As one of their fundraisers, they're naming seats in the new theaters for donations of $1,000.  This fundraiser seeks to purchase one of those plaques to put J'mel on it, that way we can all go see a movie with our dear friend. **UPDATE: If we get $2,000 we can put a seat in each of the two theaters at the Sidewalk Theater, that way no matter what plays where you can sit with J'mel.
