Over 500 films have used Colorado as their backdrop since 1898 and from now until May 8, 2012 at the Boulder History Museum, guests can learn more about Colorado’s film history at this exhibit.
The exhibit showcases the history of film in Colorado through original posters and footage from more than 100 years of movie making in places like Golden, Morrison and, of course, Boulder. Visitors will enjoy seeing a rock-cam used to film “The Cove,” directed by Boulder resident Louie Psihoyos and winner of the Academy Award for Best Documentary in 2009.
Boulder International Film Festival posters and awards will also be on display as well as an early 1920s Simplex film projector on loan from the CU International Film Festival. Tons of other local items can be experienced at the exhibit as well including behind the scenes footage of movies and a rarely heard conversation with Glenn Miller.
The Boulder History Museum is located at 1206 Euclid Ave, 80302. Admission is $3 for children, $4 for seniors and $6 for adults. Guests can visit Tuesday-Friday from 10am-5pm or Saturday-Sunday from noon-4pm. Visit the event website for more info.
