      Our next program will be:

      Bill Hoffman’s Unedited Movies of the Chicago Rapid Transit Lines in
      the 1940s and 1950s
      Presented by Jeff Wien and the Wien-Criss Archive

      June’s membership meeting will consist of digitized 8mm films taken by
      the late Bill Hoffman during the 40s and 50s on the Chicago “L”. These
      films will be shown in an unedited format rather than as an organized
      program. The audience will be encouraged to participate in the program
      by calling out the locations as they appear on the screen. This will
      give the viewers a chance to participate in the program in a similar
      manner that has been developed on the CERA Members Blog. Come join us
      for what promises to be a fun evening.

      Friday, June 28, 2013
      1900 hrs / 7:00pm
      University Center
      525 S State St, Chicago, IL

      Admission is free.

      Since there are no plans at present to make them available for sale on
      video, chances are this will be your only oportunity to see these
      vintage films. FYI, the program includes footage of the temporary
      trackage used during the construction of the Congress expressway in
      the 1950s.
