Santa Ana Blvd., 3rd Floor Exhibition Gallery, Santa Ana, CA 92701. Open Monday through Friday from 9:00 to 5:00, free admission.

In addition to the exhibit, there will be an open house on Saturday, June 4 from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m., where you can tour the exhibit and the Orange County Archives, then attend a special showing of Buster Keaton in “College”, accompanied on organ by William Campbell. Free admission.

On Wednesday June 15, Brent Walker, author of “Mack Sennett’s Fun Factory” will give a talk.

Special thanks to Bruce Calvert, American Mutoscope and Biograph Co., History for Hire, and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Without your help, this exhibit would just have been an interesting idea.
