Durham Cinematheque: Greatest Hits Volume One 

When: Fri., May 15, 8:30 p.m. 2015
Price: $5



DURHAM CINEMATHEQUE—Filmmaker and archivist Tom Whiteside's Durham Cinematheque screenings are treasure troves of history (both local and filmic) and novel presentation. While the screenings usually rove around untraditional spaces in downtown Durham, this one is unique because Whiteside is opening his own studio to the public, which he seldom does. (It's a little hard to find—the entrance can be found off of the small parking lot next to the Durham Armory.) The studio opens at 7 p.m. for an exhibition of 19th- and 20th-century film devices, from stereoscopic viewers and magic lanterns to antique projectors. Micro-cinema screenings (seating for each is limited to 10 people) follow at 8:30 and 10 p.m. The hour-long program, Greatest Hits Volume One, features Conjure Bearden, Whiteside and Anthony Kelley's edit of archival footage by H. Lee Waters, who traveled across North Carolina making silent films of people in small communities in the '30s and '40s; the program also includes Bem Jackson's Miss Hospitality and Whiteside's Sergei Eisenstein-based Riffs on Potemkin. 7 p.m. exhibit (free), 8:30 and 10 p.m. screenings ($5), 305 E. Chapel Hill St., Durham, www.facebook.com/pages/Durham-Cinematheque/389837674402221. —Brian Howe
