McMenamins Elks Temple Tacoma/Olympia Area
Tues June 4, 7 pm All Ages
There's some extra-cool local history behind this screening of a 1926 silent film shot in Tacoma. The studio behind The Eyes of the Totem lasted only four years and produced just two other films. All three were presumed lost until Tacoma Historic Preservation Coordinator Lauren Hoogkamer stumbled across a copy of Totem in New York. Catch a glimpse of vanished Tacoma in this evening of film history, which also includes a talk on local film history with Michael Sullivan, Pacific Northwest historian, and Bill Baarsma, Tacoma Historical Society President.
