Maine Broiler Day from PMM’s Photo Archives

On Monday, November 14, 2016, Penobscot Marine Museum presents the Sumner McKane film, The Northeast by Eastern, with live score performed by Sumner McKane and Josh Robbins.

The Northeast by Eastern combines Eastern Illustrating and Publishing Company’s comprehensive collection of early 20th century photographs with archival film footage, interviews, oral histories, a musical soundtrack featuring period music, as well as an original score by Sumner McKane. Combined, these stories and images illustrate an era unlike any other in American history.

The screening will take place at 7:00 pm at the Colonial Theatre in Belfast. Proceeds from the film will benefit the Penobscot Marine Museum photo archives allowing more of these important historical photographs to become available to the world via the museum’s online database.

The event was underwritten through a generous sponsorship by Mathews Brothers and Coastal Healthcare Alliance. Beer will be provided by Marshall Wharf Brewing. Tickets are $20 with a limited number of VIP tickets for $50.
