Film that captures history of Burlington receives rare screening

Published August 8, 2023 at 11:33 am

The history of Burlington as seen through the lens of a filmmaker in 1973 will be given an exclusive showing tonight (Aug. 8).

Entitled The Eyes of Memory, the project was undertaken by local documentary filmmaker Sandy Thomson and the company Cinema 16 and released to coincide with Burlington’s 100th birthday and now, 50 years later, today’s audience will be able to see just how far the city has come.

The film will be available for viewing at Joseph Brant Museum. There is no charge but it is recommended you register in advance. The film is 32 minutes long. Light refreshments including popcorn will be available while supplies last.

Screenings are scheduled for 6 and 6:45 p.m.

Regular Museum admission will apply to enter galleries when open during the day.

The screening is part of local Heritage Week celebrations which coincides with Burlington’s 150th birthday.
