Watch film of 1976 tall ships celebration

The Jamestown Arts Center will present an original 16 mm film of the 1976 tall ships celebration on Thursday, July 18, at 7 p.m. Following decades of work in the film industry, Bill Sprague filmed the celebration on Narragansett Bay and was inspired to move to the island from Indianapolis. Also, film aficionado Ken Caswell will present a selection of old-time footage of life in Jamestown including parades, events and construction of the Jamestown Bridge. The films will run under an hour and a Qand A session will follow. Cost is $5 at the door.
