The Houston MG Car Club will join in the worldwide 90th anniversary celebration of the founding of the MG Car Company with an event on Saturday, June 21, 2014. MG lovers around the world will host events during the weekend of June 21-22.
HMGCC is hosting a big screen showing of a short film and two feature length movies about MG created by Houston cinematographer Gary Watson. Watson is a long time lover of MGs and a former president of the Houston club.
The movie matinee event will start with an interview film featuring Peter Thornley, son of the late John Thornley, the well known managing director of MG from the 1950s through the mid-1970s. Following the Thornley short, the history of MG will come to life on the big screen with the showing of the documentary films, Inside the Octagon 1 & 2.
The matinee will start at 12:00 noon in the theater at the Spring Street Studios, 1824 Spring Street, where Watson’s business is located. Display MG parking will be in front of the studios on Spring Street with overflow parking behind the building off of Sabine Street.
