After two sold out shows, Manhattan and The Villages, Florida, The Expediter, a coming of age indie film set in 1975, will screen next in Lancaster Pennsylvania’s very own (120 seat) Art House movie theater Besides being a soulful coming of age story, The Expediter explores themes such as America’s decline as a manufacturing superpower, multiculturalism in the workplace, alcoholism and untreated PTSD from WWII combat.

The lights go down at 7 p.m. but get there early to mingle with the filmmakers and friends and have a drink or two.

The film will be followed by a lively Q & A with the film’s writers, directors and producers Michael Domino and Robert Mladinich who is also a New York City Private Investigator and published author of four True Crime books. It will certainly be a fun and thought provoking Tuesday night in the great and artistically vibrant city of Lancaster, PA.

Spelunk in Cold Cave

Wind / Cold Cave

Bucket, Cave
website | map it | Ridge Drive, Pequea, Pennsylvania,

Wind Cave is called Cold Cave because it's nearly freezing in there at all seasons.

It is one of the largest tectonic (created by moving rocks fracturing, not erosion) caves in the eastern United States. It is found in Pequea, Pennsylvania, about a 30 minute drive from Lancaster, in the Susquehanna valley.

To get there, follow 324 South from Lancaster. You will run into a T where the road ends when it hits the river. Take a left, onto Ridge Drive, before long on your right there will be a gated-off road entrance and several gravel parking spaces between the road and a guard-rail. Park here and follow the gated road about a hundred yards until you see a small path leading off to the left. Take this path, and keep going. It seems to wind on endlessly, but just keep going. You will come to a piling of rocks, and in this piling is a large entrance, with a sign posted by the York Grotto about taking care of the cave.
