Elks Temple History Pub: The Maury Island Incident

July 2, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

See this locally produced film about a reported UFO incident in Puget Sound! Based on declassified FBI documents, The Maury Island Incident tells the incredible, tragic and forgotten story of Harold Dahl, who on June 21, 1947, alleged a UFO sighting at Maury Island. This event sparked “the summer of the saucers,” the modern era of UFO obsession, the first appearance of “Men in Black” and a governmental battle over UFO sighting jurisdiction reaching all the way to FBI Executive Director J. Edgar Hoover. Enjoy the ambiance of the Spanish Ballroom, sip a drink, and even grab some dinner. Attendance is free! Doors open at 6.
