The seventh annual screening of historical films from the City of Vancouver Archives will be presented at the Vancity Theatre November 20 and 27.

The screening of Vancouver: Exponential Change will feature never-before-seen movies dating from the 1920s right up to 1986.

Local historian Michael Kluckner will host the viewings, providing historical insight, and background for each film.

Movies will be presented both silently and with soundtracks. Pianist Wayne Stewart will provide live musical accompaniment for the silent movies.

About Vancouver: Exponential Change

Vancouver: Exponential Change features film and video focusing on the leisurely side of city life. From a 1928 home-made melodrama by the Rogers family and their friends to a decidedly ribald mid-century PNE, from the promotional enticements of Lew Parry's 1961 Vancouver Honeymoon to the revelry of Expo 86 and Vancouver's Centennial celebrations, come see what Vancouverites through the decades have gotten up to when they're not at work.
