Take a trip to the classroom of yesteryear during this lively celebration of a once pervasive learning tool—16mm films. With Halloween creeping upon us, AV Geeks founder Skip Elsheimer (all the way from North Carolina!) draws from his collection of over 20,000 films to take a look at the high jinks that occur when specters school. From the ghosts that haunt your mouth (plaque!) to the bratty boy made invisible to learn the consequences of his actions, each film gives comical insight into essential behaviors for getting through life—and some of the cinematic conventions (or are they scare tactics?)—used to leave a lifelong effect.
