Step back into time at MOAH

 

Take a trip back to the golden age of cinema at the Museum of American Heritage in Palo Alto on Saturday, Oct. 1, where you can explore and tinker with a variety of motion picture artifacts dating from the late 1800s to 1980s.

The museum's new Evolution of Film exhibition features the rare Visionola, a Kerosene movie projector and a Scopitone, as well as film news and movie reels of silent films and talkies that show the ever-changing landscape of film. The reels can be played in the gallery.

Toy models of the zoopraxiscope, zoetrope and praxinoscope will also be available to play with.

Cost is free. The Museum of American Heritage is located at 351 Homer Ave. For more information, visit moah.org.
