Harbor Happenings: Newsreels of CD Anderson (final presentation)

Sat Nov 23  –  7:30 – Doors at 6:30

All tickets $7

Available at Harbor Drug in Hoquiam, City Drug in Aberdeen, Brown Paper Tickets, and at the door at 6:30

Join us for the second presentation of the historical documentary “Grays Harbor Happenings:  The Newsreels of C.D. Anderson,” produced by the UW Libraries in partnership with the 7th Street Theatre Association, the Aberdeen Museum of History and the Polson Museum.  Proceeds will benefit the 7th St. Theatre Association, the Aberdeen History Museum and the Polson Museum.

DVDs will be available for sale in the lobby before and after the event.  DVDs are $25.

We’ll also be showing a couple of extra short films regarding local history prior to the Harbor Happenings documentary.

Over eight years ago, a cardboard box of 35mm nitrate films was discovered in a commercial storage unit in Seattle.  They were given to the UW Libraries Special Collections.  It was very clear that urgent preservation was needed to save the deteriorating films.  After they preserved, it was revealed that the films were amateur newsreels, showing small town life in Grays Harbor County from over 80 years ago.  The newsreels record local celebrations including a Captain Kidd’s Pirates Picnic, a local football match and an impressive parade of cars celebrating the opening of the Aberdeen-Willapa Highway. They also show other noteworthy events including a recreation of the S.S. Halco shipwreck.  The documentary will include selections from the newsreels and interviews with local Grays Harbor County historians and researchers who have helped identify the locations and content of the films.

The film would not have been possible without the efforts of the UW Libraries Special Collections and the support of many other organizations including the Apex Foundation, the Grays Harbor Community Foundation, the UW Alumni Association and UWTV.

Movie: The Manchurian Candidate (1962)

Sat Nov 9 @ 7:30 & Sun 10 @ 2

$5 all tickets

Available at Harbor Drug, Tully’s, Brown Paper Tickets, and at the door one-half hour before the movie

Major Ben Marco is an intelligence officer in the U.S. Army. He served valiantly as a captain in the Korean War and his sergeant, Raymond Shaw, even won the Medal of Honor. Marco has a major problem however: he has a recurring nightmare, one where two members of his squad are killed by Shaw. He’s put on indefinite sick leave and visits Shaw in New York. Shaw for his part has established himself well, despite the misgivings of his domineering mother, Mrs. Eleanor Shaw Iselin. She is a red-baiter, accusing anyone who disagrees with her right-wing reactionary views of being a Communist. Raymond hates her, not only for how she’s treated him but equally because of his step-father, the ineffectual U.S. Senator John Iselin, who is intent on seeking higher office. When Marco learns that others in his Korean War unit have nightmares similar to his own, he realizes that something happened to all of them in Korea and that Raymond Shaw is the focal point.
