Prohibition Sneak Peek at Intiman

Ken Burns and Lynn Novick discuss the dark era and show clips from their PBS doc.

July 12, 2011

Ken Burns explores life during the dry days in his PBS doc Prohibition. Get a sneak peek on August 2.

Intiman Theatre is doing on Tuesday, August 2. The filmmakers—along with Daniel Okrent, who wrote the book Last Call—will discuss the film and show clips from it, and after that everyone will go to the lobby for old-timey drinks. Let’s hope they are not true prohibition-era cocktails, however, because who wants to go blind for the sake of authenticity? I, for one, do not.

Tickets to the KCTS 9-sponsored event are $7 and available at Brown Paper Tickets. Below is a trailer for the film, which airs in October on PBS.
