This is the film version of Walter Lords’ book on the sinking of the Titanic. Historical characters and first-hand accounts are used to tell the tragic tale of the maiden voyage of the British liner Titanic. The production team used ship blueprints to accurately create the sets. Almost every line of the dialogue is taken from the actual night that an iceberg created a 300 foot gash in the hull of the great, “unsinkable” ship and the Titanic sank quietly into the ocean leaving only a few survivors to tell the tale.
Q&A session before the film with Loree Collins (Titanic Artifact Specialists) and Shawndon Beavers (Titanic Education Outreach Coordinator), at 1:30 p.m.
Special combo package available: $14 ticket allows admission to film and Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition at the Rialto Building. Other tickets $6 to $8.

Directed by James Cameron
Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslett and Billy Zane
Based on one of the most studied disasters of all time, James Cameron captured the world’s imagination with this epic melodrama depicting the last days of the RMS Titanic. The film won eleven Academy Awards, a feat that put the movie in the exclusive company of “Ben Hur” and “The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.” Titanic also broke box office records. It was the highest grossing film of all time until recently when Cameron broke his own record with the science fiction film “Avatar”. With a romantic back-story and award-winning special effects, Titanic is a film designated to be appreciated on the big screen.
Q&A session at 6:30 p.m. with Loree Collins (Titanic Artifact Specialists) and Shawndon Beavers (Titanic Education Outreach Coordinator).
