Movies in the Park: "Pictures and Images" 

When: Wed., June 7, 9 p.m. 2017
Price: Free

As founder, projectionist, archivist, and driving force behind Durham Cinematheque, Tom Whiteside has established a happy legacy of screening films that defy the norms of the medium and the mainstream in places that follow suit. The 2017 season began with a celluloid look back at the Sputnik era through period footage, home movies, newsreels, and such. The second program takes a similarly serious/curious approach to its subject of pictures and images. That means you'll learn about the positive-negative process that underlies the making of images on film; traipse through the pre-digital era of photography, when the casual picture taker had to know what an f-stop was; and ponder the importance of pioneering motion photographers Muybridge and Marey in a "geeky" 1948 documentary. Bugs Bunny will make a cameo, too. It's a free, outdoors, idiosyncratic alternative to the summer blockbuster blues. —David Klein
