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 a special birthday party for sound film. There will be 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. This event is free to attend; the special screening will begin at 6 p.m. Registration
is not required but recommended.
The Carriage House Theater is located at 203 Genesee St. (rear) in Auburn, NY. Parking is available adjacent to the theater or on Genesee St. This program is the conclusion to the 100th Anniversary of Sound Film Celebration. This event is supported by Title Sponsor, Tompkins Community Bank, and additional sponsors KeyBank and the Skaneateles Area Arts Council.
