Ontarians are invited to reminisce at what’s sure to be a nostalgic edition of “Tuesday Night at the Museum”. The Archives of Ontario’s Speakers Bureau series “Lights, Camera, Archives” will take to the screen on February 20th at 7pm.
“Lights, Camera, Archives” is one of the Archives of Ontario’s Speakers Bureau most popular, and features historical film clips from their collection. Presented by Danielle Manning, audiences get a rare look at films produced by a variety of provincial government ministries between the 1920s and 1980s, including A Place to Stand – the Academy Award-winning film created for the Ontario Pavilion at Expo ’67. The films provide an educational and entertaining look at how the government wished to shape the public’s ideas and behaviours regarding a number of subjects, such as health, tourism, education, and working in the Ontario Public Service.
The films demonstrate how records in the Archives’ collections help us to better understand the ways in which Ontario’s past has shaped the present.
Tickets are $3 each and are available at the door. This event is proudly presented by the Lennox & Addington County Museum & Archives, located at 97 Thomas Street East in Napanee. 'Tuesday Night at the Museum' is a monthly programming feature at the museum, a series covering a wide array of themed programming presented by experts on their respective subjects.
