The Lofts at 177 Prince

Nearly 100 years before words like Netflix and 4K TV entered the English lexicon, the talk of the town was all about 16mm technology. Step back in time as we learn how the 16mm projector facilitated a film revolution and dominated the film industry for over 20 years.

Join New York Adventure Club as we explore the history of early videography and the 16mm projector with The Museum of Interesting Things, a traveling interactive exhibition of antiques and inventions inspiring innovation and creativity.

Led by Denny Daniel, Founder of The Museum of Interesting Things, our unique experience inside a secret loft in SoHo will include:

A discussion around the 16mm technology and how it facilitated a film revolution, from jazz & blues to documentaries

A rare showing of vintage short films from an antique 16mm projector including Georges Melies' "Trip to the Moon" (1902), Winsor McCay's Gertie the Dinosaur (1914), and clips of Billie Holiday (1930s & 40s)

Opportunities to interact with antique museum items relating to music, film, and photography

Stick around afterward for the Museum of Interesting Things' Secret Speakeasy, which is their monthly festival dedicated to all things vintage!

See you there!
