Saturday is Home Movie Day at Texas Theatre

Beach vacations, Christmas morning, Weddings, birthdays, the good times of life. That’s the stuff of home movies, and a collection of them will run from 4-7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, at the Texas Theatre.

The theater and the Dallas Municipal Archives are teaming up to bring Home Movie Day to our neighborhood.

The free event includes a film clinic and film and video preservation tips from experts. “Preservation specialists will explain why transferring films to video or digital media does not mean they’ll last forever,” says the media release.

A $5 donation buys a limited edition Home Movie Day Poster. Proceeds benefit the municipal archives and the continuing restoration of the Texas Theatre.
