Lights, camera, action in Birmingham

Birmingham Museum staffer and movie buff Kyle Phillips will present a free lecture on how Birmingham and its surroundings have figured into numerous feature films, short films and commercials in the last of a series of free museum lectures on Thursday, August 8, at 7 p.m. at Baldwin Public Library.

“I’ve always been interested in movies,” said Phillips. “When I first started working at the Birmingham Museum, there was an exhibit display for the ‘People of Birmingham’ bicentennial exhibit on actors Tim Allen and Bruce Campbell, and director Sam Raimi, who were all from this area. I was surprised by this and became very curious about other aspects of Birmingham’s connection to films and film making.”

When the opportunity to give a presentation on the topic came up, Phillips jumped at the chance to learn more and present a lighthearted lecture on Birmingham's contribution to writing, acting and producing film.
