Screening of “Cascade: Caring for a Place” (2018)
October 11 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for a special screening of a documentary by Michael Frierson on the Cascade Saloon. There will be two shows: 7:00 and 8:00 followed by short discussion with the filmmaker and short tours of the building.
The preservation of the Cascade Saloon, one of the oldest remaining historical buildings in Greensboro, has been 15 years in the making, and was accomplished through community partnerships and a lot of determination. Located at the railroad tracks on Elm Street in downtown Greensboro, the Cascade Saloon was built in 1895 and for years stood empty as a lonely reminder of the city’s transportation culture and its historical complexity. The restoration of the building has been documented in a short film by Michael Frierson, Professor in Media Studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Historical stills and interviews with key partners provide context as we see the building’s slow transformation from an decaying, abandoned shell to a vibrant workplace. Run time 17:00 minutes.
This FREE event will have limited seating, reservations are required. Reservations will be open to our Leadership Level members ($250+) beginning September 17th. Regular Preservation Greensboro members ($25+) may reserve seating beginning October 1, and general public is welcomed to reserve seating on and after October 8.
