Historic newsreels return to 7th Street Theatre

November 11, 2013

Historic newsreels are returning to the 7th Street Theatre.

In March, the 7th Street Theatre, as well as Aberdeen Museum of History and Polson Museum, hosted the premiere of the UW documentary, Harbor Happenings: Reel Life in the 1920s.

The documentary was produced by UWTV and features 53 short newsreels that were donated to the UW Libraries Special Collections. The newsreels were digitized and revealed to be amateur newsreels taken by local Aberdeen photographer C.D. Anderson from 1926 to 1933.

The documentary includes interviews with local Grays Harbor County historians and researchers who have helped identify the locations and content of the newsreels featured.

On November 23rd at 7:30, the museums will present the documentary one final time at the theatre. The program will be different from the March presentation with added film clips featuring Grays Harbor history.

John Larson, director of the Polson Museum, and Roy Vataja, local researcher and board member of the Aberdeen Museum of History, will narrate the show.

Tickets are $7 and are available now at City Drug in Aberdeen, Harbor Drug in Hoquiam, online at Brown Paper Tickets and at the door.

DVDs will be available for sale in the lobby.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Aberdeen Museum of History, the Polson Museum, and the 7th Street Theatre.
