Lost Charlie Chaplin Silent Film Re-Debuts 96 Years Later at Rosslyn Film Festival - Arlington VA Movies A film that made its way to Arlington may not have the special effects that "Inception" does, but it does carry a historical punch. Film historian, Paul Gierucki, discovered a 16mm film reel in an antique shop in Michigan. Thinking it was just another aged, black and white film, he brought it home and started watching it. To his surprise, one of the characters looked exactly like Charlie Chaplin... and indeed it was. The film, "A Thief Catcher," is thought to be Chaplin's third appearance on film. Chaplin later went on to become an international star in the film industry. The film's re-premiere was part of Rosslyn's annual Slapsticon Film Festival--a four day Arlington VA Movies fest...

Located on D.C. Metrorail's Orange Line, Rosslyn is the last stop in Arlington before entering the District and, compared to its more suburban-feeling counterpart neighborhoods such as Courthouse and Clarendon, Rosslyn has a distinctly urban feel. In large part, this is due to the corporate and commercial businesses occupying the area, including nationally known companies like Price Waterhouse Coopers, the Boeing Company, and several major hotel chains such as Marriott and Hyatt. A mix of culture and community, Rosslyn offers a gamut of local activities such as the Rosslyn Spectrum Theater, a vibrant performing arts venue featuring live music and theater in the evenings, or the Arlington History Bike Tour. Rosslyn is also home to an annual jazz festival each September. Although it is k...

There is no doubt that the developers of Turnberry Towers in Arlington knew what they were doing when they planned this luxury condominium building.  A concierge to make your dinner reservations, a valet to park your car and private and semi-private elevators wisk you to your unit.  Add an indoor pool, exercise room, theater room and party room and you start to wonder if you would ever have to leave home.Today I had the opportunity to tour the penthouse in Turnberry Towers and if all of the other amenities in the building weren't enough to entice you to pull out your checkbook then the view certainly will.  With sweeping vistas of the Potomac River, Georgetown University, the National Cathedral and the Washington Monument this 5300 SF unit is sure to knock your socks off.  Of course wit...

In a seller's market, it means the supply cannot keep up with the demand.  Put whatever price you want on your home because after all, in a seller's market, it's not as much about price as it is "Location.  Location.  Location." Well guess what?  In case you've been hiding under a rock, we're in a buyer's market right now…NOT a seller's market!  And a buyer's market is exactly the opposite of a seller's market.  It means we have an over supply for the amount of demand.  We have more sellers than we do buyers! When this happens, your house has become a commodity.  And like any other commodity, it's all about the price.  Here's a great analogy . . . "If you bought stock last year and that stock was worth $49 per share and today you need to sell that same stock and it is now worth $25 per ...

Granite counters?  Check.  Hardwood floors? Check.  Stainless steel appliances? Check.  Lots of closet space? Check.  Near the metro?  Check. What about the view?  How about the best view in the D.C. area!   When you purchase a condo or townhouse at Bromptons at Memorial Place, Memorial Overlook, Prospect House, or The Weslie, you can bet your bottom dollar that you'll be the one hosting your friends for the supreme view of the July 4th Washington D.C. fireworks extravaganza over the monuments on the National Mall.  Situated in the Rosslyn area of Arlington adjacent to Arlington National Cemetery and across the street from the Marines Corps National Memorial aka the Iwo Jima Memorial, these condos and townhouses offer stylish living and a view that truly cannot be rivaled.  You'll pay a...
