BON VOYAGE! BRINGS SUMMER VACATION TO THE WALT DISNEY FAMILY MUSEUM
Also Ongoing Special Exhibition in the Museum’s Theater Gallery
San Francisco, CA – May 8, 2012—Celebrate the start of summer by going on a trip to The Walt Disney Family Museum for the film of the month – Walt Disney’s Bon Voyage!
Based on the book by Marrijane and Joseph Hayes, Bon Voyage! stars Disney Legend and film celebrity Fred MacMurray, who had leading roles in seven Disney feature films. This summer marks the 50th anniversary since the film’s original theatrical release in 1962, and will be screened daily at 1 and 4 p.m. in The Walt Disney Family Museum’s state-of-the-art digital theater throughout the month of June.
Heinrich Kley: From Fantasy to Fantasia
Come see Vertigo (1958), the classic Alfred Hitchcock psychological thriller! Film critic Jan Wahl will present interesting and little known facts about the making of the film, and discuss what role the Golden Gate Bridge plays in one of the greatest films ever made.
This film screening is part of The Bridge on the Big Screen: Movies Starring the Golden Gate Bridge series presented by the Walt Disney Family Museum and The Presidio Trust in honor of the Golden Gate Bridge 75th anniversary.
Selling Walt: The Business (and Fun) of Movie Promotion
Join author (The Disney Treasures, The Mickey Mouse Treasures)—and past manager of the Walt Disney Archives—Robert Tieman as he delves into the little-known, almost-forgotten world of the Advance Promotion Campaign. Once the standard practice in Hollywood motion picture studios, the job was to get the word out on each new movie, introduce the stories and characters to the public, and build excitement in advance of a film’s opening at the local theater; in other words: sell the movie. Illustrated with rare ad materials and photos, this program offers a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Walt’s public image—and his Studio’s standing in popular culture.
