We are pleased to present the debut of area filmmaker Bob Leff's documentary featuring Columbus' own Badger Motor Company. The screening (35min) will be followed by a Q&A with the director.
About the film:
Museum takes you on a tour of Columbus’ own Badger Motor Car Company, guided by owner and curator Darvin Frey telling the fascinating stories of his eclectic exhibits.
Showcasing early and mid-20th century artifacts – with an emphasis on autos and motorcycles – along with liquid refreshment from the Badger bar, the social atmosphere makes this a museum with a difference. Taking a cue from the collection, the film features a number of vintage TV commercials that put the American consumer-economy “march of progress” in perspective.
Join us for the premiere screening of Museum and learn of the historic odyssey of George Hasey’s 1928 popcorn wagon, the heavy-duty Ibisch toboggan, and the inside story of this unique venue.
