Eastport Arts Center commemorating 100th anniversary of sinking of Titanic

Posted April 10, 2012, at 3:50 p.m.

EASTPORT, Maine — The 100th anniversary of the sinking on the Titanic will be commemorated on Sunday, April 15, at the Eastport Arts Center.

There will be a silent art auction of water themed artwork, featuring refreshments and live Titanic-era music performed by a group representing the Passamaquoddy Bay Symphony Orchestra and Eastport Strings.

The art auction will be followed at 3:30 p.m. by a staged reading of “Scotland Road” by Jeffrey Hatcher, a play about an alleged survivor of the Titanic. The play’s title is a reference to a lower-deck corridor that ran the length of the massive ship and was used by the ship’s staff. The reading will be followed by a drawing for a free pair of season passes for Stage East’s 2012 season.

At 5 p.m. the Northern Lights Film Society will present a screening of “A Night to Remember.” The 1958 docudrama chronicles the fateful night Titanic went down and is considered to be an historically accurate portrayal of events.

The Eastport Arts Center is located at 36 Washington St. For additional information, call 853-4830.
