Case Research Lab - Finger Lakes Film Trail

The Case Research Lab Museum, the birthplace of the talking movies, exhibits the working spaces of the darkroom, chemistry lab, and recording studio; the first sound camera; experimental recording equipment; and a history of the commercialization of sound film including such ventures as Phonofilms, Fox-Case Movietone, and Fox Films (now 20th Century Fox). Supported in part by a grant from Humanities New York, the Finger Lakes Film Trail is a new and evolving project that offers a fresh and exciting opportunity to interpret the singular history and culture of central New York by highlighting some of the greatest motion picture innovations at three sites: the George Eastman Museum in Rochester, the Wharton Studio Museum in Ithaca, and the Case Research Laboratory in Auburn.
