The Williamsburg Theatre (the Kimball Theatre since 2001) turns 75 years old this winter! In honor of this momentous birthday, "When the Movies Come to Town! 75 Years at the Williamsburg/Kimball Theatre" will revisit the history of the movies and going to the movies in our town.
Before we could watch movies at home or on our cell phones, we had to go out to the movies. Our local movie theater has long served as a place to see and experience other worlds while also coming together as a community. "When the Movies Come to Town!" will show a wide selection of films that have played at the Theatre over the decades. With receptions and live performances, talks by renowned scholars and presentations of images and voices from Williamsburg's past, "When the Movies Come to Town!" will provide a fun occasion to get together with neighbors and reflect on what the movies mean and have meant for our community.
Plus—there'll be lots of popcorn!
