Maine Home Movie Day
Join us for the sixth annual Maine Home Movie Day, to coincide with similar events in cities around the country!
Do you have reels of old film in your attic that you’ve never been able to watch? Footage that captures a family event, community gathering, sporting match, or performance way back when? If so, we invite you to bring them to Maine Home Movie Day.
Home Movie Day provides the opportunity to screen your 8mm, Super 8 and 16mm movies, get advice on their care and storage, and/or to just sit back and enjoy the films that others bring in. While many folks have such gems on their shelves or in their closets, most don’t have a projector or the knowledge to handle and assess their films. Archivists from Northeast Historic Film in Bucksport will be present to conduct on-site inspections and screen the films.
This event is free and open to the public.
When: Saturday, August 16, 2008, 1-4pm
Where: Maine Historical Society,489 Congress Street, Portland
