Events for Saturday, May 21, 2022
This annual display in the historic mansion provides a glimpse of George Eastman’s life and work one hundred years ago. The new selection of objects highlight the goings on in 1922—most notably the opening of the Eastman School of Music and the Eastman Theatre in downtown Rochester.
Join Ken Fox, head of library and archives, for a discussion of this fascinating history of early cinema exhibition and the ways in which it both affected and reflected its audiences. Part of a new Finger Lakes Film Trail program series, Making Noise about Silent Film: Conversations about Cinema, Culture, and Social Change, sponsored by Humanities New York, with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
