At the 25th annual Betzwood Film Festival on Saturday, May 3, at 8 p.m., audiences can learn more about this famous collision and see the film itself. Courtesy of Betzwood Film Archive f you were making a movie about a train wreck in 1914, you actually had to wreck a real train, which was what one director did. At the 25th annual Betzwood Film Festival on Saturday, May 3, at 8 p.m., audiences can learn more about this famous collision and see the film itself. The annual film festival will be held at Montgomery County Community College’s Science Center Theater, 340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell. Tickets cost $12 for adults and $8 for children under age 12. Visit www.mc3.edu/livelyarts or call 215-641-6518 for tickets and information. The story of how and why those two old locomotives ended up on the same track is only one of the features of our 25th anniversary show. We also plan to round up a posse to find Big Bill the bandit, recreate a Civil War battle, and hop into some vintage cars to rescue the kidnapped detective before the bomb goes off. Professor Eckhardt will explain the meaning of it all, with more vintage photographs from the Betzwood Film Archive and long lost stories about the making of silent movies in Montgomery County. As always, the films will be shown at their original projection speed, with live organ accompaniment by Don Kinnier. Not many local residents today are aware that before Hollywood, there was Betzwood: a sprawling 350-acre studio complex where more than 100 films were produced and circulated worldwide. Located in what is now West Norriton Township near the Trooper Road exit of Route 422, the operation was the brainchild of Siegmund Lubin, a Polish immigrant and Philadelphia-area resident who started out as an optician entranced by the possibilities of filmmaking. Lubin was truly ahead of his time, designing and selling movie cameras and projectors, operating a chain of movie theaters, and producing, directing, marketing and appearing in his own films. The visionary earned patents, conceived of the idea of home movies and tried to market movies with sound as early as 1904. But once he built his studio and film processing and distribution operations at Betzwood, he quickly became one of the most commercially successful movie moguls of the early silent era, establishing the world’s largest and most advanced film factory that employed up to 1,000 people and turned out five to six million feet of film each week. The spectacular train wreck was staged for the cameras in central Pennsylvania for a cool $35,000—as much or more as others were spending on entire films at the time and the equivalent of $818,000 in today’s dollars. The expense helped derail Betzwood’s viability. Coupled with patent and government lawsuits, restricted foreign distribution with the advent of World War I, and a major fire that destroyed the masters for many of the films, Lubin’s empire quickly foundered by 1915—when the groundbreaking film “Birth of a Nationâ€? ushered in a new era of more sophisticated storytelling. MCCC is home to the largest known archive of Betzwood movie studio artifacts in the world thanks to Joseph Eckhardt, emeritus professor of History at MCCC. Eckhardt is the author of the first Lubin biography, “The King of the Movies: Film Pioneer Siegmund Lubin,â€? which details Lubin’s transformation from an immigrant optician into the first successful movie mogul, credited with the first attempt at the “mass marketingâ€? of movies. Only 30 Betzwood films and fragments have survived the ravages of time, and MCCC is fortunate to have copies of 25 of these in its Betzwood Film Archive. For the past quartercentury, the College has screened films from its Betzwood collection for the public during its annual festival. In 2012, Eckhardt donated a variety of Betzwood artifacts – including manuscripts, photo albums, tape recordings and studio props that he acquired through this extensive research – to the archive, which is housed in a climate controlled space in MCCC’s Brendlinger Library in Blue Bell. The archive has recently been digitized and is now accessible online to the general public at mc3betzwood.wordpress.com. To join the Betzwood mailing list, email Joseph Eckhardt at jeckhard@mc3.edu.

Nick Vecchione of Springfield as “Flounder.” The show is under the direction of Dawn Morningstar, one of Upper Darby Summer Stage’s most veteran directors. “I think theatre is an experience like no other… I hope that people come away feeling they have taken a journey with the actors. Productions here are very high quality…the audience will see a professional production. I also feel it’s incredible how the audience gets to meet the cast after the show!” Children are invited to come early for pre-show activities before the morning performances and stay after the show to meet the cast members! Free babysitting is offered for those too young to enjoy the show quietly.

Is the American dream alive, breathing, misplaced, or has it been absorbed and impacted by the global world we all live in? Audiences will be taken on a non-linear adventure through a series of dance vignettes set to big band, classical, new age, and contemporary music, text, sounds, projected imagery and unexpected costumes. Six Short Works span 22 years of the company’s performances for stage, alternative sites and film. They include “The Busker” a tongue-in-cheek solo from Le Dada Va Gaga 2011, the whimsical duet from Paper Waitress 2000, “I Remember” a reflective solo from The Keepers Project 2013, “Cleanse” an intimate solo from Salt 2009, and dance films Pre-Dinner Cocktails Honey created during a 2001 Yard Residency, Chilmark MA and the colorful Tales of the Buffoon 1992 created for WHYY TV. In addition to Mulgrew, the concert features talented company dancers – Joseph Cicala, Katie Horton, Leslie Ann Pike, Kate Rast, Barbara Tait and Megan Wilson Stern. Rounding out the program is a new solo work, Elevation 2014 created and performed by Ashley Searles. Searles spent 15 years as a dancer on the New York scene performing with companies such as Parsons Dance, Liz Lerman Dance Exchange and Moving Theater. There will be a meet and greet with light refreshments with the company following each performance. THANKS FOR READING CITY SUBURBAN NEWS EVERY WEEK!

e blown away by Hagley Museum and Library’s 2014 NatureFest on May 3. This year’s theme is the power of wind. Learn about the importance of wind from pollinating plants to creating energy. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $5 for non-members, $2 for members, and free for all children 5 and under. Use Hagley’s Buck Road entrance off Route 100. NatureFest celebrates the science and beauty of the natural world with fun, hands-on activities for families. Join a nature hike, explore the E.I. du Pont garden, and take a behindthe-scenes tour of the greenhouse. NatureFest is held rain or shine. Outdoor and weatherappropriate attire is recommended. E. I. du Pont, the founder of the DuPont Company, was an avid lover of the natural world. He declared his occupation as “botanist” when he immigrated to America with his family. His family established a tradition of taking a nature walk on the first day of May. E. I. du Pont’s youngest daughter describes one of her explorations in a letter to her sister in May 1828: “The Dogwood and hawthorn are in bloom all around… and their white blossoms contrast beautifully with the varied green of the young leaves, that just begin to throw a shadow over the thousand flowers that bloom beneath them.” NatureFest is held in their honor. For more information, call 302-658-2400 weekdays or visit www.hagley.org.
