Saturday, October 21 is Oregon Coast Home Movie Day at the North Lincoln County Historical Museum (NLCHM) in Lincoln City, happening from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. It's free and open to the public.

“Home Movie Day is celebrated worldwide,” said the NLCHM. “It is a fun interactive event, where you can learn about different small gauge movie formats, get your own movies inspected and repaired by a film archivist, learn how to preserve and protect your films, and get recommendations for digitization.”

That's right: you can get your old movies worked on or even screened.

Beyond the help the museum offers up, you'll get to see old home movies of the region and the town – and maybe even your own. All of it is projected onto a big screen for people to watch that day.

“The best part is watching your own family’s precious memories on the big screen,” the museum said. “NLCHM will also be projecting films from their own collection, including footage of Lincoln City and other Oregon coast locations in the 1950s and 1960s.”

8mm, super-8mm, and 16mm films are accepted day of, on a first come first served basis. If you want to guarantee a spot, you can drop off your films at NLCHM, 4907 SW HWY 101, Lincoln City, Wednesday – Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you are interested in getting VHS, hi8, MiniDV or other media inspected and screened, contact NLCHM as soon as possible. Email: 541-996-6698.
