Members of the Tamaqua Historical Society recently attended the second premiere of a 47-minute film called "National Heritage Episode One, The Revolutionary River," held in the Sovereign Majestic Theater in Pottsville.

The premiere was held with partnerships of the Schuylkill River National & State Heritage Area, Historical Society of Schuylkill County, and other sponsors. The film, produced by Telemark Films on behalf of the Schuylkill River Heritage Area, focuses on certain areas of the Schuylkill River and its importance during the American Revolution, Industrial Revolution, and merchant trade, as well as history of the river region from its geologic formation to its importance today as a source of drinking water.

Following both screenings, a reception at the Schuylkill County Historical Society was held, allowing the audience time to mingle with the film's producer.

A third premiere about the Schuylkill River region, is scheduled for Friday, April 9, at Albright College in the Klein Auditorium at 7 p.m. For more information, call (484) 945-0200.
