Commentary throughout the program of short film segments with John Wilson.

We are excited to collaborate with the Vineyard Gazette to offer this historic program to you. 

The Historic Movies of Martha’s Vineyard project, a pioneering and award-winning effort of the Vineyard Gazette, presents films shot on the Vineyard dating back almost one hundred years. Clips shown at the Film Center will include footage filmed from the Gay Head Cliffs to downtown Edgartown, including scenes shot of hurricanes in the 1950s, Island steamers and ferries in the 1940s, offshore swordfishing expeditions in the 1930s, and Vineyard beaches dating back to the late 1920s.

Presented in collaboration with the Vineyard Gazette.
