Curator Presents Utah’s Role in Movie-Making

James V. D’Arc, curator of the BYU Motion Picture Archive, will present “Movie Making in Utah” on March 28 at 7 p.m. in the Lindquist Alumni Center at Weber State University. 

After 30 years of research, D’Arc wrote “When Hollywood Came to Town,” which discusses the role Utah has played in some of Hollywood’s most famous movies. Those include “Footloose,” “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” “Planet of the Apes,” and more. 

This presentation is free to the public and is sponsored by WSU’s Department of History, the Weber Historical Society and the WSU Alumni Association.
