Ice Cream and Elevators: BYU’s First Student Film Restored
Curator Ben Harry Has restored BYU’s first student produced film.
In the spring of 1971 several students at Brigham Young University were given the opportunity to make a film.
It is a playful campus romance that captures a slice-of-life of BYU campus culture at the time and some of the cherished dating traditions of that era.
The 28-minute movie was premiered before 6,000 students in the Smith Field House on campus on May 6, 1971, and it ran until the end of the term in the on-campus Varsity
Since that time it has been an underground cult classic at BYU.
Join us March 3 at 7:00 pm in the library’s Reynolds Auditorium on level 1.
