The Historic Films of the Pikes Peak Region

This program is presented by Steve Antonuccio, who has spent over 30 years working in public and academic libraries; of which 20 have been with the Pikes Peak Library District.

During his career at PPLD he helped establish a collection of historic films shot in the Pikes Peak Region. From the first film shot in 1897 by the Edison Company to over 100 films shot by the Alexander Film Company from the 1920's through the 1960's, Steve has archived this remarkable collection housed at the Pikes Peak Library District.

In 2019 he published a book on his career working in libraries entitled: "There is No Such Thing as a Typical Librarian."

In his program The Historic Films of the Pikes Peak Region, Steve will be featuring samples of the historic films of the Pikes Peak region as they relate to his book. These clips include samples of films shot by the Alexander Film Company as well as clips from several documentaries he produced during his career at the Pikes Peak Library District.
