Among the holdings are original negatives of the Biograph and Edison companies, and the world’s largest collection of D. W. Griffith films. The film collection is stored in the Museum’s Celeste Bartos Film Preservation Center, a state-of-the-art facility that opened in June 1996.</p> <p><a href="/visit/films">Film exhibitions</a><br /> <a href="/visit/calendar/filters/3">Film screenings schedule</a><br /> <a href="/visit#filmticketing">Ticketing policies for film screenings</a></p> <p><a href="/research-and-learning/research-resources/study-centers/index#filmstudy">The Celeste Bartos International Film Study Center</a><br /> <a href="/research-and-learning/research-resources/study-centers/index#historypreservcenter">The Celeste Bartos Film Preservation Center</a><br /> <a href="/research-and-learning/research-resources/study-centers/index#circulatingfilm">The Circulating Film and Video Library</a><br /> <a href="/research-and-learning/research-resources/study-centers/index#filmstills">The Film Stills Archive</a></p> </div> </div> <div class="column-c"> <div class="JS_Widget"> <a href="/widgets/collection/film" rel=""></a> </div> </div> <br class="clear" /> </div> <br class="clear" /> </div>
