The Art Theatre of Long Beach and Trout Unlimited of Southern California are proud to present two special screenings of the unique California Documentary Rivers of a Lost Coast. The film is showing this weekend, August 22-23 at noon on both days.
Rivers of a Lost Coast, which looks at the current salmon and steelhead crisis through the eyes of lifelong fly fishermen recently won Best Documentary at the Sacramento International Film & Music Festival. The film is narrated by Tom Skerritt (A River Runs Through It) and was recently deemed “a must see” by the Seattle Times, SF Chronicle, Press Democrat and Napa County Register.
For 84 years Long Beach has been home to the Long Beach Casting Club, one of the finest and most respected angling organizations in the entire country. During the golden age of California’s north coast fishing from the 1930s-1970s, members of the Long Beach Casting Club and San Francisco’s Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club revolutionized the sport of fly fishing.
The non-profit conservation group Trout Unlimited of Southern California, is presenting the event and will receive 10% of the ticket sales. This is a 2-day event only.
