Free Showing of New Allegheny Observatory Film Sat. Night

There will be a special, free-of-charge showing of the new historical film, "Undaunted, The Forgotten Giants of the Allegheny Observatory,"  on Saturday evening (2012 August 25) at 8:00 p.m. EDT, in Riverview Park, just outside of the Allegheny Observatory, on Pittsburgh's North Side. This is part of Dollar Bank's Cinema in the Park summer film series.

SPECIAL NOTE: Parking  in the vicinity of the Allegheny Observatory will be reserved Saturday evening, for a special event in the Observatory building. People coming by automobile will have to park elsewhere in Riverview Park. Port Authority bus route 8 Perrysville serves a bus stop on Perrysville Avenue at Riverview Avenue, a block from the park entrance and the hillside where the film will be shown.

Following the hour-long historical film, the film "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows," will also be shown, beginning at 10:00 p.m EDT. This is the first double-feature for Dollar Bank's Cinema in the Park summer film series.

The showing of "Undaunted, The Forgotten Giants of the Allegheny Observatory" coincides with the centennial of the 1912 August 28 dedication of the new Allegheny Observatory building.
