"Your home movies are probably a lot more interesting than you remember," insists a press release for the 11th annual Home Movie Day, a worldwide event. It originated as "a means to promote the preservation of amateur films" with two dozen locations across the U.S., Mexico, Canada and Japan. Since its inception, Home Movie Day has added locations each year, inviting the public to search attics and basements for those long-forgotten Super 8 and VHS films. "Bring them to Home Movie Day, where trained event staff can assess their condition and project them on the big screen," say organizers. 8mm, 16mm, VHS-C and miniDV formats will also be screened. Held on Saturday, Oct. 19, at Wall Street Coffee House (62 Wall St.) from 2-4 p.m. Free. homemovieday.com. Image courtesy of Home Movie Day
