Things That Are Still Here DVD
Take a big bite of an Oram's Donut. Go for a refreshing swim at Ligonier Beach. Sit and stare at the dinosaur bones at Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Oakland. Then you might start to understand some of the enduring charms of western Pennsylvania. The area around Pittsburgh is full of intriguing old places, unusual family-owned businesses, a wacky set of colored "belts" that sometimes circle the city, and lots of other unexpected pieces of our past. In this delightful documentary, WQED's Rick Sebak (producer of the original "Things That Aren't There Anymore") celebrates some interesting old buildings, classic artifacts like Fiesta dinnerware, hand-painted movie posters and assorted other things that have survived in spite of our local civilization. There is ancient evidence of human habitation at Meadowcroft Rockshelter, there are hidden luxuries in Braddock's Carnegie Library, and there are surprises like the Warner Brothers' first movie theater, the old Sewickley Train Station and the Calder mobile that hangs at the Pittsburgh airport. THINGS THAT ARE STILL HERE takes a sly look at some of the quirky old joys of living in western Pennsylvania.
