Rock hall hosting Home Movie Day event on Oct. 19

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame keeps finding new and interesting way to attract fans, and counted among those is its upcoming Home Movie Day.

Set for 2 p.m. Oct. 19, the presentation by the Rock Hall and its Library & Archives will offer fans “a compilation film of rock performance footage assembled from local home video and film donations in the Museum’s Foster Theater. Clips will include never-seen-before footage of legendary punk and new wave bands from Northeast Ohio like the Pagans, Hammer Damage and Devo, as well as more contemporary local artists,” according to a news release from the downtown Cleveland attraction.

Plus, some of the film and video donors will be at the event to share behind-the-scenes stories about the bands and performances.

More from the release:

Home Movie Day is an internationally celebrated event that celebrates the importance of the preservation of home videos and films. Just like the documents, photographs and costumes the Rock Hall collects, home movies serve as historical, social and personal documentation of communities, neighborhoods and individuals. The videos and films donated to the Rock Hall for this Home Movie Day event not only document the stories of the Northeast Ohio music community, but they also make for a rocking good time.

The event is free, but the release states that you need to make a reservation, at ticketing.rockhall.com.
