Marathon Screenings


We are reaching out to schools, libraries, public access TV stations, theaters, museums, restaurants, community centers, universities–and anyone else who would like to host a public viewing party for a portion of Home Movie Day and Night: The 24-Hour Marathon. Aside from a TV monitor or projector able to connect to the internet, no special equipment or setup is needed. Just go to the project’s website (http://www.centerforhomemovies.org/24-hours) and watch with us! We’ll start the webcast at noon Coordinated Universal Time, but you can join the program at any time in the following 24 hours as it moves around the world and through each time zone, crisscrossing the 20th and 21st centuries. Most (though not all) of the films are silent, so we encourage you to supply your own soundtracks and have conversations about what you’re watching. We would love to know about these public events so that we can help spread the word and connect watchers around the world to each other, so please get in touch if you’re planning a screening! Send email to 24hours@homemovieday.com and connect to us on our project website and on social media:
