NEW FILM!

“THE LAST HUNGARIAN on BUCKEYE”

by Mr. Tibor Bognár

The Magyars who colonized the Buckeye Road area on the east side of Cleveland in the late 1800’s built the proverbial “Little Hungary” that lasted for the next 120 years. Mr. Tibor Bognár, international student from Hungary, is currently working in the Department of Communications at John Carroll University. He is a participant in the Calasantius Training Program, which has already sponsored over one hundred Hungarian students earning diplomas in Master’s Degree programs all over the United States. Mr. Bognár will present a viewing of his new documentary film, “The Last Hungarian on Buckeye.” The film chronicles the rise and decline of this once vital neighborhood,

where one could go from cradle to grave in the “middle of Middle America” – and never need to

The old Moreland Theatre on Buckeye Road

know a word of English! But the Magyars of Buckeye were also patriotic, true-blue Americans, and one need only consult the honor rolls of Buckeye-boys who died in American uniform in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. At the same time, its citizens were proud of a 1000 year old Magyar heritage that was exemplified in the parades, processions and feasts of Buckeye Road, where the streets were not “paved with gold,” but rather, bedecked with red, white and green banners. Come see this film – and remember. . . .

 

In English! Show times: Friday Nov. 26 9:15 AM; Saturday Nov. 27 4 PM
