ANCHORAGE FILM SOCIETY. Records; 1953-1976.
1.35 cu. ft.

The Anchorage Film Society was a non-profit organization which
sought to present distinguished motion picture films to the community
each month. The organization was supported through the sale of
season tickets. For a time, the Society was a department of the
Anchorage Community Theater, in affiliation with Anchorage Community
College. Later it was operated by a board of directors. In the
beginning the films were shown in Sydney Lawrence Auditorium;
later, they were shown in Anchorage Area high schools. The organization
went out of existence in 1981 due to the lack of a viewing location.

The collection consists of the administrative, operational,
and financial records of the Anchorage Film Society. The records
include bylaws, minutes, reports, correspondence, schedules, programs,
program ballots, a media survey, tickets, bank statements, canceled
checks, expense receipts, and check stub books.

The collection was deposited in the archives by the Anchorage
Film Society in 1981.
