Listen: Movies of Santa Cruz

Join Archives & Collections Catalyst, Marla Novo, and Abbott Square Music Coordinator, Gabriel Kittle-Cervine, for That Was Weird: Stories from Santa Cruz, a fresh take on Santa Cruz History with the MAH's first-ever podcast.

This month, Gabriel and Marla sat down with Randall Brown, a local historian who specializes in cinema. Dive into the history of movie-making in Santa Cruz, with a specific focus on the period of time between 1915-1920, when the film industry was first finding its feet. Everyone knows about the films Harold & Maude, The Lost Boys, and Us, but very few know anything about the original origins of filmmaking in Santa Cruz. It may come as a surprise to some that before World War 1, our sleepy coastal town was becoming a hub for silent filmmakers.
