Official Commemoration and Screening Begins at 6PM
The “Roaring 20s” found their roar in Auburn, NY. In 1922, scientists in a private laboratory in an Auburn backyard, The Case Research Laboratory, ushered in a technology revolution. The goal: bringing sound to the film industry to create “Talkies.”
This December, enjoy a once-in-a-generation opportunity to celebrate the 100th anniversary of a technology that changed the world forever! In the Carriage House Theater, where some of the earliest sound films ever made were produced, come join us for a special birthday party for sound film. We will have live jazz music, take-home science projects for the family, commemorative merchandise, a screening of rarely seen early sound film footage, accounts from some very special guests, and of course a birthday cake! Come celebrate 100 Years of Sound Film on the actual day its first component was conceived.
