Images and sounds from the past will move through the Harold B. Lee Library Auditorium during the Motion Picture Archives Film Series beginning Thursday (Jan. 27) at 7 p.m. in the Harold B. Lee Library Auditorium.
The screenings are open to the public free of charge.
Only those age 9 and above will be admitted, and food and drink are not permitted in the auditorium. Seating is limited, so participants are encouraged to arrive early. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. For more information, call (801) 422-6371.
The series will begin with a screening of the popular 1950 James Stewart film, "Broken Arrow." Excerpts from Stewart's home movies that are part of the library's James Stewart Papers will precede the film.
This showing will be the first of five presentations of motion pictures from the library's motion picture archives.
"We want to share the treasures we have with the community, faculty and students and familiarize them with what a great resource we have here," said James D'Arc, curator of the Motion Pictures Archives and Film Music Archives collections.
This occasion will also feature the debut of the BYU Film Music Archives release of the original motion picture score to "Broken Arrow."
The score by Academy Award-winning composer Hugo Friedhofer can now be heard for the first time in full stereophonic sound. It is the fifth release on the BYU Film Music Archive label.
Twentieth Century Fox Studios permitted BYU to use the original studio music tracks in preparing this original soundtrack album on compact disk.
The film series is sponsored by the Special Collections Department of the Harold B. Lee Library.
