Drop-In Tours: Sounds of Storytelling 

Drop-In Tours: Sounds of Storytelling 

Discover cherished works in the museum’s core exhibition, Stories of Cinema, during a drop-in tour with museum educators. 

The Education and Public Engagement team invites visitors to explore Stories of Cinema, the Academy Museum’s ongoing core exhibition that presents diverse, international, and complex stories of moviemakers and the works they create.

Join museum educators on Friday afternoons to highlight the creativity of movie objects and moviemakers.

In July, our Drop-In Tours will explore music and sound as a form of storytelling. Conversations with museum educators will highlight the musical styling in Casablanca (1942)—including the iconic pianos used by the character Sam—the consuming score from Hildur Guðnadóttir created specifically for the museum’s Composer gallery, and powerful sounds from The Godfather (1972). The educators will lead drop-in style tours that will spotlight ways in which sound becomes a vehicle of storytelling in the moviemaking process.

In addition, museum educators will provide a farewell to Regeneration Black Cinema: 1898–1971, as they lead guided tours of the exhibition at 1:15pm and 2:15pm on July 7 and July 14 before its closure on July 16.

All are welcome to join these public drop-in style gallery conversations, free with admission, from 1pm to 3pm.
