Limited seats are available for a free program March 6 showcasing – in fact and fiction – the 125-year-old tugboat Arthur Foss, a National Historic Landmark.
The 112-foot vessel, still serving as a museum ship, is the subject of a new 13-minute documentary, “Arthur Foss: Iconic Tugboat of the Northwest,” by students of the Art Institute of Seattle.
The boat also starred in the acclaimed 1933 MGM film, “Tugboat Annie,” with Marie Dressler, Wallace Beery, Robert Young and Maureen O’Sullivan.
Both films will be shown beginning at 6 p.m. at the visitor center of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, 319 Second Ave. S., followed by a discussion.
Tickets are free but must be obtained in advance. They can be found by going to Eventbright.com and searching for “Arthur Foss.”
The Arthur Foss, now owned by the nonprofit Northwest Seaport, is used in educational programs at the Historic Ships Wharf at Lake Union Park.
