‘Tuesday nights’ back at History Center
The annual Tuesday Nights in July at the Old Colorado City History Center will feature authors, performers, a movie and reenactors, with each of the four events starting at 6:30 p.m.
Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children under 13. Owned and operated by the all-volunteer Old Colorado City Historical Society (OCCHS), the center is at 1 S. 24th St.
The series will kick off Tuesday, July 10, when three local, recently published writers will discuss their new books. They are Jan Pettit (“Utes, The Mountain People”), Ruth Obee (“History in Stone: the Story of Red Rock Canyon”) and Toni Hamill (“Images of America: Garden of the Gods”).
Other “Tuesday Nights” events will be:
July 17 - a performance by Western-style musicians/poets Tom and Donna Hatton of Woodland Park.
July 24 - a screening of “The Incident,” a made-for-TV movie starring Walter Matthau that was filmed in Colorado Springs in 1989, with several scenes on the older Westside helping depict a homefront town during World War II.
July 31 - Reenactors Dianne Hartshorn and Doris McCraw playing Queen Palmer and Helen Hunt. The press release states: “Come enjoy tea and cookies with these two famous Colorado Springs women. Their husbands established Colorado Springs and shared the same social groups.”
