Benefit screening of local UFO film for Discover Burien will be Friday, Aug. 1

A benefit screening of the locally-produced UFO film “The Maury Island Incident” for Discover Burien will take place on Friday night, Aug. 1 at the Tin Theater, starting at 7 p.m.

“The Maury Island Incident” is a 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.

Each screening will be followed by a Q&A session with Filmmakers.

The film – which was shot in Burien (at the Tin Room!), 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 in May, and its North American premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival. It was awarded the competitive Washington FilmWorks Innovation Lab funding during production.

It has also been accepted to both the Port Townsend and Burbank Film Festivals, where it will screen in September.

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 are available for online purchase by credit/debit card here – and proceeds will benefit local business non-profit organization Discover Burien.

Screenings will be held hourly, starting at 7 p.m. (then again at 8, 9, 10 & 11 p.m.), followed by a Q&A session with filmmakers.

Collectible t-shirts and posters for the film will also be on sale in the lobby.

The Tin Theater is located at 923 SW 152nd Street.
