Saturday Cinema: Celebrating Eames

Saturday, May 10, 2014 • 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00 p.m.

Exploratorium Pier 15, Kanbar Forum
Included with museum admission.

In remembrance of Lucia Eames (1930–2014), friend of the Exploratorium, daughter of Charles Eames, and stepdaughter of Ray Eames, we celebrate the filmic works of her family, whose legacy she was committed to expanding and sharing.

Known primarily for their design work, Charles and Ray Eames were also innovative filmmakers, playfully examining everything from the principles of mathematics to everyday items like bread and tops. Their films were some of the earliest purchased for the Exploratorium’s film collection.

Tops (1967)  
Toccata for Toy Trains (1957)
