Centron Films Celebrated at Liberty Hall in Lawrence
Centron Films, based in Lawrence, was one of the premier industrial and educational filmmakers in the U.S., producing short instructional and training films from 1947 to 1994. Centron was a small, yet highly successful company that used Lawrence locations and hired local actors and extras. As KPR’s Tom Parkinson reports, “The Stars of Centron” will feature a collection of the quirky short films along with appearances by some of the people who produced and acted in them.
The “Stars of Centron” is free and starts at 7 tonight, Thursday, June 22, at Liberty Hall in Lawrence.
The Prelinger Archives of San Francisco offers many Centron films for download and public use. Find some of them HERE.
