In 1997 Terry Cuddy, a young local emerging filmmaker, was inspired by the story of another local innovator of film: Theodore Case, the father of the Movietone sound-on-film system. Finding a sympathetic figure in Case, Cuddy launched his conceptual documentary exploring the history of the Case Research Laboratory and its contributions to the modern film world. Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, Cuddy finds himself in yet another alignment with Case as the Cayuga Museum celebrates 100 Years of Sound Film. Explore Cuddy’s documentary in a special film screening at the Carriage House Theater and listen to a presentation by Cuddy on his work.
The Carriage House Theater is located at 203 Genesee St. (Rear) in Auburn, NY. Parking is available in a lot adjacent to the Carriage House on Orchard Ave, and in front of the museum on Genesee Street. This program is part of our 100th Anniversary of Sound Film Celebration, which is supported by our Title Sponsor Tompkins Community Bank.
