Film historian Steven Fredrick is hosting a screening of vintage Hawaii films from the 1940s next Wednesday. The films will include shorts, WWII newsreels, and travelogues, some of which are quite rare. Here's the kicker: the original prints--many which are 60-65 years old--of the films will be shown! No junky DVD or video dubs here! Details:
