Durham Cinematheque - Durham Then and Now 

When: Fri., Oct. 17 2014

DURHAM HISTORY HUB—Tom Whiteside, the artful film archivist behind Durham Cinematheque, opens his fall season with this unique experimental screening. Durham Then and Now is a three-screen video installation where silent footage of Durham from three 1930s and '40s films (H. Lee Waters' Movies of Local People, Don Parrisher's Negro Durham Marches On and March of Time newsreel Tobacco Land USA) is layered with footage Whiteside shot downtown last year. Projected on paper screens at the gazebo outside the museum, with live music by Blue Star Travelers, the time-telescoping installation visualizes the struggle between continuity and change that Durhamites feel so keenly. 7 p.m., free, 500 W. Main St., 919-246-9993, www.museumofdurhamhistory.org. —Brian Howe
