Memories of the Molly Maguires
Wednesday, April 4 6:30 pm

Thomas Curney, a local historical reenactor and collector will conduct a presentation on the 50th anniversary of the making of the movie, The Molly Maguires. The Molly Maguires movie was filmed locally in 1968. Scenes in the movie were filmed in Pennsylvania locations such as Wilkes-Barre, Hazelton, Eckley, Bloomsburg, Weatherly, Jim Thorpe & Ashland.

Mr. Churney will display memorabilia from the movie that he has acquired including costumes, photos and other history of the film by Paramount pictures. The film which starred Richard Harris, Sean Connery and Samantha Eggar also recruited a number of local residents to act as extras. The program also includes a brief history of the legendary Molly Maguires of the region.

Mr. Churney is a former volunteer at Eckley Miners' Village in Weatherly, PA. He currently offers displays and speaking engagements on Civil War Medicine, Victorian Photographs, and the Molly Maguire Movie. He resides in Drums , PA.
