Fundraiser screening for Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Association will be Aug. 13

A benefit screening of the locally-produced UFO film “The Maury Island Incident” for the Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Association will take held on Tuesday night, Aug. 13, 2019 at the Vashon Theatre, starting at 6 p.m.

“The Maury Island Incident” is an award-winning 30-minute film that tells the forgotten, tragic story – taken directly from declassified FBI documents – of Harold Dahl’s June 21, 1947 UFO sighting near Maury Island, and the first reported ‘Man In Black’ encounter that happened to him the very next day.

The screening will be preceded by a short presentation, and followed by a Q&A session with Filmmakers.

The film – which was shot in Burien, Des Moines, Tukwila and off the shores of Maury Island during the summer of 2013 – had its world premiere at the Big Island Film Festival, and its North American premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival. It was awarded the competitive Washington FilmWorks Innovation Lab funding during production.

Directed/Produced by Scott Schaefer from a script by Writer/Producer Steve Edmiston, it features Seattle-area actors Tony Doupé, Allen Fitzpatrick, John Patrick Lowrie, David S. Hogan and many others. It was Executive Produced by John White, and Produced by Scott and Laura Beth Peterson and Danny House.

Here’s a brief review from noted paranormal/UFO radio host Clyde Lewis:

“The tension in this film is so thick you can cut it with a knife. The Maury Island Incident captures a moment in time long forgotten by most UFO researchers. It also reopens those Cold War feelings that are nothing but a forgotten memory in the post 9/11 era. Bravo!”

Tickets are $10 each, and proceeds will benefit the Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Association.

Collectible t-shirts and hats will also be on sale in the lobby.

The Vashon Theatre is located at 17723 Vashon Hwy SW, Vashon, WA 98070 (more info here).
