Films of C’ville

000008663_0001 - Version 2This Thursday, June 13th, at 7 p.m. at C’ville Coffee on Harris Street, the next in our monthly series will feature two extended film clips taken circa 1929 and 1939.

These are hand-held early home movies.  We will supplement  the film footage with still images to give background and context.  There will be plenty of never-seen-before material and some bits of hidden local history many folks in Charlottesville may not know.

Some of the highlights: Milton airport and a flight over Charlottesville; UVA Hospital with patients being treated on the rooftops for sun and fresh air; and some glimpses of downtown Charlottesville’s bustling 1930s Main Street. The films will take us to a couple of historic homes, see some local golf courses, the Presbyterian Church when it was on Market Street, and a look at the green pastures on Pantops that is hard to fathom today.

We’ll pack all this and more into an hour-long show of film footage and photographs.  You won’t want to miss it!  $5 at the door helps CHIL continue its work collecting and digitizing historical C’ville images.
