While Disneyland is one of the most photographed places on earth, this collection of one-of-a-kind footage and photography offered a unique view of the theme park from different points in time. The Academy Film Archive’s collection of vintage home movies provides glimpses of Opening Day, July 17, 1955; Walt Disney exploring the miniature trains that inspired the park; Steve McQueen and his family visiting the Magic Kingdom in 1970; and a variety of other events from a bygone era.  Suzanne Lloyd joined the presentation to showcase her grandfather Harold Lloyd’s stunning 3D photography of Disneyland taken on the week before its opening.
