Vintage Folk Tales

16mm Special presents VINTAGE FOLK TALES.

Join us at the Hollywood Theatre for an afternoon of vintage 16mm folk tales from around the world. Assembled from the personal 16mm library of Portland archivist Greg Hamilton, these folk tales were shown in classrooms around the United States and captured stories and legends from many cultures. From Native American legends to African animal stories, these classic films exposed the young and old to new stories from faraway lands.
