Time Tested Books and Midtown Monthly are excited to announce the October event in our Sacramento Living Library series: a very special one-night-only screening of Sacramento filmmaker Richard Simpson's 'Marshes of 2 Street' (1966), followed by a discussion and Q&A with Simpson himself. Not to be missed!
In 1966, as wrecking balls destroyed much of Sacramento's historic downtown to make way for I-5, Richard Simpson took his camera to 2nd Street to document the end of an era. The result is 'Marshes of 2 Street', one extraordinary half-hour that captures life in Sacramento's West End waterfront district before it was "Old Sacramento"--a film rarely seen and even more rarely shown! Join us for this unique opportunity to see film and filmmaker together at dusk inside Midtown's favorite bookstore....
The event starts at 7:00pm on Sunday, October 17th, and admission is free.
Time Tested Books is located at 1114 21st Street in Midtown Sacramento.
