Color in the Movies

Indiana-based film historian and collector Eric Grayson appears in person tonight to present a brief illustrated history of motion picture color. Using rare and beautiful film clips from his extensive personal collection, Grayson will demonstrate that, contrary to conventional wisdom, movie color existed years before The Wizard of Oz. He’ll also talk about (and show) a wide variety of processes (Kinemacolor, Technicolor, Kodachrome, Eastman color, et al.). Nothing digital will be projected—and no PowerPoint either! Just real film from real reels!

120 min. Total approx. 16/35mm. Special admission $10; Cinematheque members & CIA I.D. holders $8; age 25 & under $7; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
