We are proud to present our second Special Event in our Classic Movie Screening Series. On Thursday, March 6, 2014, we will be showing Stephen Spielberg’s “War Horse”.
This film was released in 2011, and captures the relationship between Albert, a young man in rural England, and his horse Joey. The film follows the horse though his confiscation by the British Army for the war, and his horrific journey and survival of “No Man’s Land” in France during the Geat War.
Bring your tissues for this one. I hope you can make it. We will have drinks and fresh popcorn on sale for the full movie experience. Admission is $5 at the door and 100% of the proceeds go to support the Conrad Caldwell House Museum.
On Thursday, February 6th 2014 we will be presenting the First (of four) Classic Movie Screenings as part of our Special Exhibits at the Conrad/Caldwell House Museum. The First Movie that we are presenting is the 1927 classic “Wings” starring Clara Bow and Gary Cooper. This Silent film about World War 1 fighter pilots in France during the Great War was the very First Academy Award Winner for Best picture in 1929. It also won the First Oscar for “Best Engineering Effects”, now called “Sepcial Effects”.
The copy that we will be presenting is a print that has hand colored segments during the dog fights, which are very realistic for it’s day.
The screening will be at the Conrad/Caldwell House Museum, which is located at 1402 St. James Court in Old Louisville. The movie will start at 7:00 pm. I hope to see you then.
Our Newest Exhibit Opens Saturday, January 11, 2014 at The Conrad Caldwell House Museum. It is located in the heart of Old Louisville a 1402 St. James Court.
The exhibit titled “Louisville And The Great War” is in honor of the 100th anniversary of the start of World War. It covers the events leading up to the US participation in 1917. It covers events in Louisville during that period of our History and the creation of Camp Zachary Taylor, which was one of 16 army training camps built in the United States in 1917.
The Exhibit runs through the end of May 2014.
