Burlington Historical Society to Present 'History of Hollywood'
Interested in learning about the history of Tinseltown?
On May 4 at 7:30 p.m. the Burlington Historical Society is featuring guest speaker Anne Barrett with film clips for a talk titled "From the Wild West to the Movies.”
“Grab your bucket of popcorn and head for the Burlington Historical Society for a journey through the exciting early years of films and Hollywood,” a release reads. “From a little west coast town, Hollywood evolved into a ‘glittering movie mecca full of glamorous stars and scandalous behavior.’ See 19th and early twentieth century film clips that give you a front row seat to the dawn of the movie industry.”
Anne Barrett is Vice President of the Topsfield Historical Society, publisher of its newsletter “Local Lore” and a columnist for the “Tri Town Transcript.” She is also a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
“Anne has brought her presentations to a variety of groups,” the notice says. “She is bringing to the Burlington Historical Society an insight into the fascinating evolution of the movie industry in Hollywood, USA.”
The presentation is open to the public on Thursday, May 4, at the Murray Kelly wing of the Human Services Building, 61 Center Street in Burlington. Doors open at 6:30 with the presentation at 7:30 p.m. This will be followed by refreshments, a short business meeting and a raffle. There is no admittance charge.
