Knoxville History Project: Parlor Talk at Maple Hall

Category: Free event, History & heritage and Lectures

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on Film

On June 20 we'll be hosting a rare showing of a half-hour silent but color film of the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It's definitely not Mr. Disney's version, but a fascinating local artifact, with an all-Knoxville cast, most of them children, and shot in Knoxville in 1945 (the same year John Gunther visited and determined that Knoxville was the “ugliest city in America”). It includes some local settings both recognizable (Fountain City's Savage Gardens) and long-gone (Lyons View's extravagant Fulton Mansion, torn down in the 1960s).

The rare film is in the collection of the Tennessee Archive of Moving Image and Sound, and helping narrate will be executive director Eric Dawson. We haven't even seen the whole thing yet, ourselves, and are looking forward to it. But one thing TAMIS would like to do is identify as many of the people in the movie as we can, so this might be a good event for you to bring your favorite octogenarian, to help with identifying dwarfs.

As is always the case with our monthly Parlor Talk series, it's free, but food and drink is available for purchase—and, as always, we'll have books available for purchase, too.

Margaret & The Wampus Cat: A Staged Reading

  • June 20, 2019

Category: Literature & readings

Hosted by Katie Myers
Thursday, June 20, 2019 at 6:30 PM – 9 PM
At The Emporium Center, 100 S Gay St, Knoxville, Tennessee 37902

You're invited to a staged reading of Margaret and the Wampus Cat, written by Knoxville playwright Caitlin Myers. Deep in the woods, outside the town of Sneedville, the demonic Wampus Cat waits to drive you mad - at least, that's how the story goes. Margaret, a restless teenager who is searching for a place to belong, is ready for an adventure. When the Wampus Cat comes back to her town after a long period of absence, Margaret takes it upon herself to hunt her down and become a hero. But the Wampus Cat doesn't seem to want a fight, and instead offers a curious bargain. What follows is a story of vulnerability, resilience, and identity; a story of queer love and shape-shifting, based in East Tennessee legend. This reading will offer a chance for audience feedback, give the work some exposure and show its potential.

Doors 6:30, Performance at 7
Sliding Scale $5-$15
