2014 AVGeeks Signup
A/V Geeks maintains a collection of over 23,000 old 16mm educational films from various decades of the 20th century, including such classics as The Library Story (1952), many obtained from school and government auctions. Media archaeologist Skip Elsheimer holds themed showings of selected films at events around the Triangle and in other states.
This event, When Computers Were Young, will include "Actual 16mm school films that introduce us to the wonderful world of computers and their potential future -- all before Google!" Films will include Disney's Ethics in the Computer Age and more. This showing is an all ages, public event that is part of a series of monthly shows held at Kings Barcade, but the event has been scheduled and themed with the Code4Lib crowd in mind.
When: Doors open at 7:30 PM.
Where: Located two blocks from the Sheraton, Kings is a 250-capacity live music venue with a full bar and several local beers on tap. Kings is directly connected with the Neptunes Parlour, a cocktail lounge with classic arcade games, pinball, and nightly DJ's. The new Garland Indian restaurant, operated by the same owners, is also downstairs.
Cost: The event is free with a suggested $5 donation.
