EASTLAND: The Shipwreck That Shook America

July 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

On July 24, 1915, SS Eastland capsized in the Chicago harbor. More than 800 lives were lost that day, making it Chicago’s deadliest day. Join us for a special viewing of the award-winning documentary EASTLAND: The Shipwreck That Shook America. Producer, Harvey Moshman, will be on hand to share behind-the-scenes photos and materials and a Q&A after the presentation.

Admission is free and there will be a small cash bar available.

During the day, we will also be showing two other documentaries by Moshman
