Movie Night with the Museum of Durham History!
September 9, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
On September 9th, join the Museum of Durham History for a food-themed double-feature movie night! From 7-9:30pm, we will have a big projector set up in Durham Central Park, and we will start with the PBS documentary ‘Durham: Food Town.’ Directed by David Delaney Meyer, this short documentary takes a look at a normal day for 5 chefs in Durham who helped give us the nickname, ‘The Tastiest Town in the South.’ After that, we’ll travel over to France to enjoy a delicious serving of ‘Ratatouille!’ This event is free to the public and part of our event programming for our current exhibit, ‘Dining Out In Durham.’
UPDATE: We will be joined by ‘Durham: Food Town’ director and 30-Under-30 filmmaker, David Delaney Mayer!! Prior to the movies, David will provide us with insight and reflection on the creation of the documentary. A brief introduction from Mr. Mayer himself:
“I was born in Durham, grew up in Durham, played basketball at Duke– graduated from Duke, and now lived my adult life here in Durham as a filmmaker — and recently I’ve launched a very different kind of company, a fast growth startup that hires documentary filmmakers (www.elemmir.com). Part of my goal is to make it easier for filmmakers around here (and in the south) to make their films! So I’ve seen a lot of different sides of this city. I’m a big fan of what y’all are doing at the history museum. There’s a ton of history here and a ton of it that needs preserving as this city changes and we all change with it :)”
This new development for our Movie Night makes it all the more exciting! We hope to see you there.
