April 15th, 1912 at 2:20 AM the heralded “Unsinkable” luxury liner The RMS Titanic sank to the bottom of the Atlantic after colliding with an iceberg. The loss of over 1500 lives made world news as the greatest maritime disaster in history.The tragedy of the sinking and it’s relation to human ego and folly has fascinated generations inspiring numerous authors, film makers and artists to create work about the the great ship and her doomed passage.
In commemoration of the Titanic Centennial Fleur de Lethal Cinematheque and The Hollywood Theater invite you to a rare screening of “A Night To Remember”. Made in 1958 this stunning film (which served as the main inspiration for James Cameron’s blockbuster) was adapted from the novel by Walter Lord. Masterfully restored by Criterion the film maintains being beautiful and moving while providing a straightforward telling of the disaster. (In fact,this is the only account of the sinking that does not deride in to fictional subplots).
We will be marking the exact time at Pacific Standard Time that the ship struck the iceberg and closing the event at the 100 years to the minute mark that the ship sank to her resting place. A lobby reception will open the festivities with refreshments for sale and a string quartet playing the music of the era.
Costumes and period dress are welcome and we encourage attendees to wear their finest ( living or dead) to join in the occasion.
