Popcorn Noir to Re-Open as The Platinum Pony

Popcorn Noir is CLOSED for renovations. We will re-open in August as The Platinum Pony

Like Popcorn Noir, The Platinum Pony will have live music, performance/theater, art, trivia, comedy, dance parties, really great drinks, food, and a patio on the pond. Popcorn Noir itself will continue as the film club that presents at The Platinum Pony. This website is currently being updated to reflect the changes. We'll soon be putting out details about our (free, as always) film programming in August, and how you can be a part of it. In the meantime, go checkout the new venue's website, and become a fan of the new Facebook page, and share!

Rob Kimmel 
The designer of Popcorn Noir's logo now offers an exhibit or varied works. Rob operates an independent, full-service creative studio, specializing in design, branding and illustration, in Northampton. 

Kate Marion LaPierre 
Mixed media abstract artist using paint and textural elements. "While my work can suggest landscapes, I create each piece spontaneously using a layering process. Each piece is unique and a journey with color, texture, and emotion. After years as an editorial illustrator, I returned to creating my own art. I enjoy the emotions abstract art can evoke, and am influenced by past and present artists." 

Nora Frankel 
"I strive to create an intriguing visual space from simplicity and repetition. The obsessive detail is as soothing as it is engaging, built up slowly into a form that is more than the sum of its parts. By eliminating shading, colors, and other variables, I am able to explore the infinite potential of one element, the simple circle. I am searching for alternate ways to describe space and form, evoking what is familiar while constructing an abstract pattern purely for visual pleasure." Contact Information: 

Marty Dittiger 
A regular, and good friend of Popcorn Noir, Marty recently revealed he is an artist as well. See a preview of his coming collection- two works near the coat rack, in "Marty's Corner" Tristan Chambers Photographer Tristan Chambers will light up the windows of Popcorn Noir's lobby. Chambers' black and white winter landscapes were captured as part of project collaboration with Duo Orfeo. 

Andy Diehl (Ice carving) 
Popcorn Noir chef Andy Diehl will display his ice carving talents pond-side behind Popcorn Noir between 4pm and 6pm. View from Popcorn Noir's back patio, or walk down alley adjacent to Mt. Tom's Ice Cream.
