From the Heritage Archives we present this sample from the 16mm film collection of the late Mr. Martin Bourne, former resident of Clarenville in the 1950s. Mr. Bourne who operated the first movie theatre in our town was also a filmmaker who shot colour films around the Clarenville and Bonavista area. His son, Larry donated the film prints to Heritage in July 2014. Stephen Bonnell, Society President and also a filmmaker himself, took the time to digitize the prints. Enjoy!
