Cinema Bomar: Goodbye, Mr. Germ

Filmstrips from the past promise a better future

The vintage-filmstrip collective Cinema Bomar brings a promise of a better tomorrow…from yesterday. This round of 16mm Movie Night includes 1940s-era solutions for ridding the world of all things bad. How did the old guys propose we do it? Goodbye, Mr. Germ Nat’l Tuberculosis Assn explains how using a radio to communicate with germs will help kick sickness to the curb. Watchtower Over Tomorrow Office of Government Information says the United Nations will destroy the efforts of the Axis of Evil. Satellites, Servants in the Sky Modern and The Invisible Universe Documentary promise that poverty, war and sickness will be ended thanks to machines in the sky. Man, we can’t wait to see how these ideas pan out…oh, wait. Well, there’s always next century…8:30 p.m. Domy, 1709 Westheimer. For information, call 713-523-3669 or visit www.domystore.com. Free.
