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 ( 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.
