Elmhurst, IL-Cub Scouts Visit the THS Museum

Theatre Historical Society was pleased to host the  Cub Scouts Pack 26  at the American Theatre Architecture Museum this afternoon.  The group of boys paid a visit to learn about theatres before going downstairs to the York Theatre to enjoy Wreck-It Ralph 3D.  The boys were especially interested in the  3D portion of the museum’s current exhibit about the transition from film to digital movies.  They also loved the “atmospheric sky” above the Avalon Theatre model, the Motiograph film projector, and the interactive marquee on the photo enlargement of the Paradise Theatre.

THS is pleased to host group events by prior appointment.  If you would like to schedule a visit, contact the office at 630-782-1800.

    Hi –

    They’re adorable.

    But I’m glad they toured the museum FIRST before seeing WRECK-IT RALPH and getting bad ideas!!!
