VIRTUAL CINEMA

Cary at 150

June 14

12:00 am

Free to view documentary on the history of Cary

Through interviews with scholars, witnesses and participants, Cary at 150
creates a rich portrait of the past, present and future of Cary, North Carolina.

Cary at 150 tells the story of one of the most successful communities in the
United States. Founded by Frank Page in 1871, Cary, North Carolina has been a railroad town,
a center of education, a farming community and a suburb of Raleigh. Today, Cary
is a bustling tech hub of 170,000 people, home to SAS, MetLife and now Apple.
How did a dusty crossroads become an international technology hub? Who were
the people who helped build the town we live in today? Through interviews with
scholars, witnesses and participants, Cary at 150 creates a rich portrait of the
past, present and future of Cary.

“Those who know the story, should tell the story.”
– Jimmy Gibbs, Cary at 150

In honor of the 150th anniversary of the community, Town of Cary is proud to present
Cary at 150, a documentary film by Cary citizen and two-time Emmy® winner Hal
Goodtree.
