Free Screening of the Classic Gloucester Film, Captains Courageous

August 28, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Join us at the Cape Ann Museum Green for a free screening of the classic Gloucester film, Captains Courageous on Saturday, August 28 in partnership with the Cape Ann Community Cinema.

Captains Courageous is a legendary 1937 film about a Portuguese fisherman who rescues the son of a railway tycoon after the boy fell overboard from an ocean liner. Based on Rudyard Kipling’s 1897 novel, the movie was filmed primarily in Gloucester. Photographs from the Museum’s Library & Archives document the filming.

The film will start at 7:45 p.m., and attendees are invited to bring blankets, lawn chairs, and picnic meals beginning at 7:00 p.m. Local attendees are encouraged to walk, but there will be free parking at O’Maley Middle School and a shuttle to get to the Green.

Admission is free, but registration is required to ensure there is enough space for all.

Neighbor Reception

Prior to the public screening, the Museum invites abutters of CAM Green to attend a free, catered reception from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Neighbors are being offered a free tour of the Janet & William Ellery James Center and the full CAM Green Campus.
