Route 66 News

Route 66 documentary to debut next month

Photojournalist Joe Frederick of Frederick Media spent much of last summer checking out businesses and its people along Route 66. That trip will culminate in the documentary film, “Life Along the Forgotten Highway,” next month.

Frederick recently appeared on a news show on NBC Philadelphia to talk about the film. A free screening is scheduled at 7:30 p.m. April 19 at Deke’s BBQ at Philadelphia.

Here’s a teaser trailer:

Frederick Media’s YouTube channel contains several good Route 66 clips, including this one from the Sky-View Drive-In in Litchfield, Ill.:

Frederick Media has a blog here. It also has a Facebook page here, if you want to surf over and say hi.

It’s producing a DVD of this documentary. I’ll have more about it as soon as I get it.
