The Return of Cinema Bomar

We are presenting a new program of 16mm films from our collection which have not been previously shown! Join us at Rice Media Center on November 2, 2016, at 7 PM.

A reception will be offered from 6:30 to 7 PM in the back hall. There will be beer, wine, sodas, water and snacks that can be consumed before the show.

Cinema Bomar's America - 1950s - 1970s
Home is Where the Heart Is - Mid 50s - Gorgeous color film about buying a home through a Savings & Loan - if you are younger than about 50, none of this will make any sense. 22 min.
Good Morning How May I Help You? - 1959-60 - Beautifully photographed in black & white, an homage to the Bell telephone operator. 18 min.
Our Election Day Illusion - 1961 - Documentary about gerrymandering and why we can't have nice things. 30 min.
The Baggs - 1973 - A non-narrative fantasy about two sacks of junk which come alive and escape from their collector to demonstrate to elementary school kids concepts of love, understanding, and humor - yes, it was the 70s, and there may be a quiz. 11 1/2 min.

About Cinema Bomar

Cinema Bomar puts on on showings of 16mm industrial, educational and ephemeral films from our personal collection. We are entirely self-funded and all of our shows are free. Our mission is to give people the experience of seeing these films, most of which were never intended to survive to the present, in their original format.
