Film Before the Digital Age

Speaker Rosemary Irwin

Sunday, April 21, 2024

2 pm - 4 pm

In the last decade, we have learned to store memories and to experience images--even major motion pictures--digitally. Once upon a time, film was the magic medium which allowed you to capture the visual world, and Rochester, NY was a world leader in creating this process. Even today, film is often the superior way to store historic images. But film itself has been and is constantly evolving. Come look back more than 100 years to see for yourself the wonders of film and some of the transformative world history Rochester, New York, led worldwide.

Meetings are held at the Henrietta Senior Center, 515 Calkins Road
