ABOUT THE TWILIGHT ZONE TV SERIES:

The Twilight Zone is an American anthology television series created by Rod Serling, which ran for five seasons on CBS from 1959 to 1964. The series consisted of unrelated episodes depicting paranormal, futuristic, dystopian, kafkaesque, or simply disturbing events; each show typically featured a surprising plot twist and usually ended with some sort of message. The series was also notable for featuring both established stars (e.g., Joan Blondell, Ann Blyth, Burgess Meredith, Ed Wynn) and younger actors who would later become famous (e.g., Robert Duvall, Mariette Hartley, Ron Howard, Robert Redford, Burt Reynolds, William Shatner). Rod Serling served as executive producer and head writer; he wrote or co-wrote 92 of the show's 156 episodes. He was also the show's host, delivering on- or off-screen monologues at the beginning and end of each episode. During the first season, except for the season's final episode, Serling's narrations were off-camera voiceovers; he only appeared on-camera at the end of each show to promote the next episode

The "twilight zone" itself is not presented as being a tangible plane, but rather a metaphor for the strange circumstances befalling the protagonists. Serling's opening and closing narrations usually summarized the episode's events in tones ranging from cryptic to pithy to eloquent to unsympathetic, encapsulating how and why the main character(s) had "entered the Twilight Zone". In 1997, the episodes "To Serve Man" and "It's a Good Life" were respectively ranked #11 and #31 on TV Guide's 100 Greatest Episodes of All Time. In 2002, The Twilight Zone was ranked No. 26 on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time.[2] And, in 2004 and 2007, the series was ranked 8 and 9 respectively, on TV Guide's Top Cult Shows Ever.

ABOUT MAGICIAN TOM CRAVEN

I have been doing magic for over 48 years. I have performed in every state in the continental U.S. except Idaho.

I have performed at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, California on 6 occasions... 1981, 1985, 1989, 2009, 2010, and 2011. Corporate functions have been a mainstay of my magical career, as well as private parties.

I just had a book of my life in magic published in July, 2011. This book has almost every trick in it, that I've invented over those 48 years. Close up magic is my first love, but stand up shows for larger crowds are also high on my list!
- Tom Craven

Downtown Kent Historical Highlights:

CITY BANK ANTIQUES: http://www.citybankantiques.com/

In August 1995, Don and Karen Barrett opened City Bank Antiques in the original, 1911 City Bank Building in Kent, Ohio. Don is an expert in the repair of American pocket watches. It was inevitable that their hobby would someday develop into a business, which Karen, a former librarian, now manages. Their store offers a variety of antique clocks as diverse as cuckoo and school house regulators to grandfather clocks and pinwheel regulators. The Barretts are proud to be official Chelsea Clock dealers, the “timekeepers of the sea” and the last great American clock company.

In September 2005, Don and Karen showcased their expanded shop which now encompasses the entire original City Bank Building and occupies more than 1850 square feet of first floor retail space. When it comes to antique pocket watches, City Bank Antiques is one of the largest retailers in the state.

The role of our historical society in the community has grown over the years. We now bring educational programs to schools, businesses, and civic organizations, as well as collaborate with community groups on projects such as the preservation of our historic Pioneer Cemetery, the Main Street Kent revitalization program, and historic preservation projects in the community.
We are dedicated to documenting Kent history through artifacts, records, and documents from the people of our community, our living history.
