On Mon., April 11 at 6 PM in the auditorium, we will offer a free screening of the 1958 film, “A Night to Remember,” which recounts the sinking of the “unsinkable” RMS Titanic on her maiden voyage from England to New York City when she struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic and then sank in the early morning hours of Monday, April 15, 1912. Directed by Roy Ward Baker, the British film stars Kenneth More and portrays the tragedy in a documentary style. Blueprints of the original ship were used to create authentic sets. Unlike the better known 1997 film, “Titanic,” “A Night to Remember” is highly regarded by historians and survivors for its authenticity.
On Tuesday, April 12, 110 years to the day after the disaster, Dr. Art Barbeau, emeritus professor of history at West Liberty University, will lead a discussion of the film.
In addition to being in-person in the Library auditorium, this program will be available to watch live on Facebook Live, on YouTube, and on the OCPL website's LWB Livestream page. Log into your Facebook or YouTube account during the program to leave questions for our presenters in the comments box. They will answer them during the live broadcast.
