Keepers of the Light: Documentary Feature by Liz Witham & Ken Wentworth
October 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$14
Built over 200 years ago in a small Wampanoag community at the tip of an island in the Atlantic, the Gay Head Lighthouse is one of America’s most famous beacons. From whaling days to electrification, “Keepers of the Light” tells the story of evolving technology, heroism and shipwrecks, and the people who are called upon in each generation to keep the light, woven with the story of the recent race against time to save the historic beacon from falling over the edge of the rapidly eroding cliffs.
The screening takes place at the Cotuit Center for the Arts. Tickets are $14 general admission and $12 for members and are on sale in advance at www.artsonthecape.org, over the phone at 508-428-0669, or at the door. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. There is plenty of on-site parking available.
