Hollywood Modern: Film Design of the 1930s

This Saturday, Designing Tomorrow‘s related film series “Hollywood Modern: Film Design of the 1930s” will begin at the AFI Silver Theater and Cultural Center in Silver Spring, MD. We’re screening ten films (some in association with a great Ginger Rogers’ Centennial series), that highlight some of the best examples of modern architecture and interior design seen on-screen during the Great Depression.

Below is a full list of the films included. For more information (and to buy tickets, if you live in the DC-area!) head over to the AFI/Silver website.

I’ll be posting more detailed film descriptions as well as individual entries for several titles in the days and weeks to come – so please stay tuned!
