TWENTY FIFTH ANNIVERSARY SHOW
Saturday, May 3rd, 2014, at 8:00 p.m.
Back in 1914, if you were making a movie about a train wreck, you actually had to wreck a real train! And that’s just what one Betzwood director did. It cost a fortune and the movie world was stunned by the results.
To hear the story of how and why this famous collision was created—and to see the film itself—please join us as we celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Betzwood Film Festival.
The program also includes samples of the many Melodramas, Civil War genre films, and Westerns once made in Montgomery County, as well as more amazing stories and rare vintage photographs from the collections of the Betzwood Film Archive.
And, as always, we strive to recreate the experience of going to the movies one hundred years ago. Our films are shown at their original projection speed and are accompanied live on the theater organ by the incomparable DON KINNIER.
