Glenbow Archives Film Night

Glenbow Archives Film Night

Join Glembow archivists and host David Finch, well-know Calgary historian, for the first ever Glenbow Archives Film Night. This free event, in celebration of Archives Week 2010 will feature the 1925 silent movie gen Petroleum, Alberta's Newest Industry, as well as amazing film footage of the wildly-spewing Atlantic #3 oil well blowout at Leduc in 1948. Marvel at the ingenious (and not so ingenious!) attempts to cap the well with cement and even chicken feathers! To round out the program, see a selection of Esso service station television commercials from the 1950s, bringing back memories of the "Happy Motoring Song" jingle.



When: Thursday, October 7th at 7:00
Where: Conoco Phillips Theatre
Admission: Free
