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 live stream featuring many short film screenings will include:
– A discussion around the 16mm technology and how it facilitated a film revolution, from jazz & blues to documentaries
– A rare virtual viewing 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)
– A digital showcase of antique museum items relating to music, film, and photography
Afterward, we’ll have a Q&A with Denny — any and all questions about 16mm projectors and films are welcomed and encouraged!

Denny Daniel started working as a freelance filmmaker/documentor and photo retoucher/restorer for such companies as The Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island, Songs of Love, and the New York Times.
Amassing his collection of antiques since the 1980’s, and having had over 20 museum and gallery exhibitions of his own work at locations like the Chelsea Art Museum, he decided to use his knowledge, experience, contacts and extensive collection of over 300 antiques to start an enterprise that would inspire students and some of us in the “real” world to learn from the past and innovate a better future.Buy tickets/get more info now
