Linotype: The Movie

FREE for members/Regular admission for non-members

Come early to visit the exhibit, then join us for a screening of this feature-length documentary centered on the Linotype casting machine once called the “Eighth Wonder of the World” by Thomas Edison.  What place does the Linotype have in the age of new technology? Why should anyone care about typography or the technology of communication? The film explores these questions and tells the story of a small group of former operators working to bring their skills to a new generation. Visit the 
Cleveland Works, exhibit prior to the screening to see the Linotype machine from our collection that was formerly used at White Wing Publishing.
