Eastland Documentary – Special Invitation to CGS Members

Special Screening

Sunday, July 14, 2019

1-2:30 p.m. 

York Theatre in Elmhurst, IL

Eastland: Chicago's Deadliest Day Documentary is the dramatic story of how hundreds of immigrant factory workers and their families, setting out for leisurely summer cruise, died aboard a heavily loaded steamship that tipped over while still tied to the dock in downtown Chicago... and how the rich and powerful who were responsible got away with it.

The Eastland Disaster Historical Society is graciously offering CGS Members an opportunity to attend this Special Screening by registering for FREE tickets before they are available to the general public. This will be your opportunity to see "Eastland" on the big screen in surround sound! Seating is very limited, with tickets available only to current CGS using the following link: then click on “Ticket information here.”

Note – you do NOT have to obtain a membership to EDHS. The link will let you register for FREE.

The tickets are available to the general public starting this Friday, June 28th, so reserve your tickets today!

Thank you to the EDHS for this opportunity. Another great value and benefits for CGS membership!
