Films of C’ville

The Charlottesville Historical Image Library is pleased to announce our show for June, 2013.  We have been studying two films from two independent sources.  One was shot in 1929 and the other around 1939.  At our June 13th show at C’ville Coffee we will feature clips from these two films and show other historical images to give the films context.  In general, the films feature scenes from around Charlottesville and the University of Virginia.

img907Varsity Hall at UVA, seen here in its original location is featured in one of the films.

The two films include a variety of scenes, including some aerial footage over downtown Charlottesville (in color!) and some very rare footage inside UVA hospital. You will also see a bustling Main Street in 1939 and cars driving past The Corner in 1929. Check back here over the next few weeks for details and previews, but mark your calendars now for Thursday, June 13th, 2013.  Show starts at 7 p.m.  $5 at the door helps CHIL continue it’s work finding and researching C’ville images.
