Founders Day 2010

Hundreds gathered along the parade route for Auburn’s Founders Day 2010. The event is celebrating the city as the “birthplace of talking movies” and the contributions of Auburn’s Theodore W. Case, who invented the first sound films in 1916.

Along with Sigourney Weaver, Case’s grandson, Theodore W. Case III, participated in the celebration.

One of the focal points of the weekend will be the Case Research Laboratory that preserves Case’s work on Genesee Street behind the Cayuga Museum.
