On the 15th my family and I had the privilege to visit the George Eastman Museum in Rochester New York. I would imagine quite a few of you have visited there. I would be curious on what your thoughts were? I enjoyed it quite a bit. Pretty nice exhibts and an amazing house and gardens. However, I did feel there was a lot of untouched Kodak history and facts. The left 16mm and 8mm pretty much untouched. Mainly focusing on the very early photography.
It was neat seeing the original scketches from many of the early Looney Tunes (The Ducktators 1942)

As a New York State resident, it kind of bothers me I've never been there. The next time we're up in that area I'll have to make a point of it.

Thanks, Zech!

(Then again, it took me about 55 years to get around to actually visiting the Statue of Liberty!)

To be honest, although I have been there a couple of times, I can't really remember what is in the Kodak gallery as far as cine goes at Bradford's National Media Museum.

I agree with you Zechariah. I visited the Eastman house many years ago and felt that the Kodak history was in need of a more detailed exhibit. Things apparently haven't changed.
