THE GREAT STORM

Admission is $7 for adults, $6 for students, ages 6 to 18, and free for children under 6.

The Great Storm, the story of the 1900 hurricane that hit Galveston Island on Sept. 8, has been digitally restored from its 35MM slide presentation to an advanced wide-screen, high definition format. This documentary shares the personal stories of survivors and the recovery of Galveston following the deadliest natural disaster in United States history. This new HD version shows incredible detail and clarity in the black and white photos taken after the disaster and used in the documentary.

The new digitally projected show coupled with a new state-of-the-art sound system brings visitors even closer to the story. “Using today’s imaging technology we were able to remove large scratches, tears and focus issues in the photography which wasn’t possible 18 years ago,” says Producer Richard Hoggatt of Houston’s Stage Directions Production Company. “The result with digital projection is an incredible clarity in these old images.”
