The Cinema Museum presents a fund-raising screening of Saving Brinton (2017), a documentary by Tommy Haines and Andrew Sherburne.

“This is special…preserving and recreating history and the magic of motion pictures.” — Kevin Brownlow

“A heartwarming new documentary tells the story of the history teacher who stumbled upon the Brinton Collection, a unique archive of films from the earliest days of moving pictures.” – Pam Hutchinson

Saving Brinton (2017) is a “cinephile’s delight” (Hollywood Reporter) about retired Iowa Teacher of the Year Michael Zahs, who makes a remarkable discovery — the century-old films that introduced middle America to the movies. These treasures from Georges Méliés, Thomas Edison and the Lumiere Brothers have somehow survived the ravages of time, and Mike quickly realizes their value, not just to cinephiles, but to his rural community, who rally to put on a show celebrating the legacy of America’s greatest barnstorming movieman, Frank Brinton.

This is a fundraising screening, with all profits from the evening going to the ‘Save the Cinema Museum’ Campaign. The screening will include special features supplied by the film makers to support the Campaign.

Doors open at 18.30, for a 19.30 start.

Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.
