Lights, camera, action Bayside!
With a grand opening taking place tonight, The Castle in Fort Totten Park will be home to the Bayside Historical Society’s (BHS) latest art exhibit: “Bayside: The Actors’ Enclave.”
The project transports you back nearly 100 years to the glitz and glamour of the Roaring Twenties and illuminates Bayside’s special connection to its film scene: many stage stars of the era called Bayside home.
The exhibit will feature various photos, posters, newspaper articles, memorabilia and silent films from the era straight from the historical society’s archives.
The grand opening is tonight, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m. in the ground floor exhibition hall at the Castle located at 208 Totten Ave. There will be live music and refreshments served. Admission is free for BHS members and $5 for not-yet-members.
For more information, visit the official event page or call 718-352-1548.
The exhibit will be open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays and from noon until 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
BHS was founded in 1964 and collects and preserves information concerning the history of Bayside and offers a variety of programs in the arts and humanities.
