16mm NIGHT: GEMS FROM THE ARCHIVES

Synopsis:

Thursday, April 24th at 8:00 PM

16mm NIGHT: GEMS FROM THE ARCHIVES
Film collector Russell Harnden is back with another screening of Gems From The Archives, a film series devoted to obscure, outdated, and orphaned films drawn from his personal collection of cartoons, educational films, industrial films, and other odd footage. Once again, a sampling of those wonderful educational films from the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s will be pulled from the vault and screened for an evening that’s sure to stimulate your mind and make you laugh at the same time. Join us and watch as everyday office furniture takes on the employees (You And Office Safety), the pork industry goes berserk (Two With Bacon), and creepy men lurk in the local movie theater (The Dangerous Stranger). There will be many more great titles as well. These sorts of “ephemeral films” often provide startling and entertaining examples of 20th Century attitudes, frequently provoking the question “What were they thinking?" So be sure to join us for what will be a fun and “educational” evening!

CURATOR IN ATTENDANCE!
