Copley Library Film Collection

With more than 350 titles comprised mainly of 16- and 35-mm film prints the Copley Library film collection has been donated to SOHO. As soon as funds are available, SOHO plans to transfer the films to a digital format and make them available online. Meanwhile we are planning to hold free outdoor screenings of them at the Marston House, dates to be determined.

The majority of the films are Copley Productions pertaining to San Diego and California, and date from the late 1950s through the mid-1970s. A look at just a few of the titles gives a good indication of the wide array of subject matter the films cover:

Up, Up and Away - San Diego Airports
San Diego's Most Important Corner
