The Bar Harbor Historical Society’s new film “The Fire of ’47” will be shown on Monday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m. at the Jesup Memorial Library in Bar Harbor.
Director Peter Logue of Southwest Harbor has interviewed more than 20 community members who shared their memories of the tragic conflagration that roared across much of the eastern side of Mount Desert Island 70 years ago. Photos and film taken in 1947 also will be part of the production including some never-before-seen clips. Narrated by Steve Zirnkilton of Seal Harbor, the film documents the fire that was ignited on Oct. 17 and wasn’t declared out until Nov. 14, 1947.
For more information, call the library at 288-4245.
