Lost mines, abandoned diggings, ghost towns...
Today, the old hotels and saloons stand in mute testimony to a fabled past when prospectors came to gamble, find and lose a fortune, or die without revealing the location of a rich and elusive mine. Their tales continue to fascinate and intrigue, and even haunt us.
Best Documentary Award-winning "Ghosts of the West: The End of the Bonanza Trail" relates stories of towns from mineral strike to boom to bust, revealing their ultimate fates and legacies. A Q&A with writer-director E. S. Knightchilde follows each presentation.
NOTE: The screenings on Saturday, October 7, and Sunday, October 8, are preceded by "The Haunted West," a multimedia lecture presented by the creator of "Ghosts of the West." Special lecture + movie ticket combos are available online for those dates under the listing for "The Haunted West."
