Museum of Interesting Things Film Festival

The Museum of Interesting Things Film Festival is an online event offered during the COVID-19 pandemic in place of the monthly, in-person Secret Speakeasy. If you’re unfamiliar, the Secret Speakeasy is a monthly event in which participants watch vintage films and interact with antiques, collectibles, and inventions in various ways.  The new Film Festival offers many of the same thrills, just from the comfort of your own home. So snap up your ticket and gear up for virtual debuts, demonstrations, and spirited discussions.

The host of The Museum of Interesting Things Secret Film Festival is its inimitable showman, Denny Daniel. He’s the curator and founder of the museum. If you are wondering what his show is like, we can provide a suitable description. It’s a robust mix of Barnum and Baily, Pawn Stars, and Antiques Roadshow.

Keep in mind, the programming changes to focus on a new theme each month, so the best way to keep up with what’s on offer is to join their email list. This month’s theme is Mind Your Manners, which focuses on driving, etiquette & more!

You can purchase tickets and find additional information about The Museum of Interesting Things Film Festival here.
