It's been years since you've seen them, hasn't it? Those old movie reels in the box at the back of your closet or at the top of the attic stairs. Dust them off, because it's Home Movie Day again! This fun, global cinematic event marks its 10th anniversary celebrating the grainy joy of small gauge film—8 mm, Super-8 mm and 16 mm—and especially the family memories that so many of our parents and grandparents captured upon celluloid. Bring your old movies and they'll be projected on the big screen. You can even have one transferred to DVD for free. If you don't have any old movies, come anyway and watch the Christmas mornings, beach vacations and European adventures of other Technicolor families. It's high camp, especially when people pipe up to narrate their own footage of their 6-year-old self. You can even walk home with fun prizes playing home movie bingo. A/V Geek Skip Elsheimer and N.C. State film studies professor Marsha Orgeron run the show, which is co-sponsored by Duke's Archive of Documentary Arts and the State Archives. The free event runs 1–4 p.m.; visit homemovieday.com. —Chris Vitiello
