“The Real Men of CATCH-22” @ Harbor History Museum
Apr 11 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
"The Real Men of CATCH-22" @ Harbor History Museum | Gig Harbor | Washington | United States

Humanities in the Harbor, a monthly lecture series that explores unique and engaging topics for the greater Gig Harbor community, will continue in April with another presentation complementing our “Bomber Boys: Portraits from the Front” exhibit.

Join Museum Director Stephanie Lile for a look inside the real world of famed novel and movie CATCH-22, the very bomb group our exhibit “Bomber Boys: Portraits from the Front” is based upon. These men flew B-25 bombers throughout the Mediterranean theater, risking life and limb in strategic bombing efforts that helped bring the war to an end. The presentation will include the backstory of the “Bomber Boys” exhibit and serves as a great intro to the special showing of the 1970 CATCH-22 movie being shown at the Galaxy Theatre on April 24th in partnership with the Gig Harbor Film Festival.

Lile’s presentation of “The Real Men of CATCH-22” as well as the screening of CATCH-22 at Galaxy Theatre are FREE to both Harbor History Museum members and Gig Harbor Film Festival members. RSVPs are requested as seating is limited. RSVPs can be made online or directed to Zachary Sokolik, Marketing & Development, at marketing@harborhistorymuseum.org.

Admission to “The Real Men of CATCH-22” is $5.00 for non-members and may be purchased online or at the front desk of the Museum. Admission to CATCH-22 at Galaxy Theatre is $10.00 for non-members and can be paid at the door.

Humanities in the Harbor is held at Harbor History Museum, 4121 Harborview Drive, Gig Harbor, WA 98332. The Galaxy Theatre is located at 4649 Point Fosdick Dr NW, Gig Harbor, WA 98335.
