Film: West of the West – Tales from California’s Channel Islands

Set sail for adventure in this three-week series that examines the fascinating human history of California’s Channel Islands.

Part 1: Ancient Peoples

12 PM & 2 PM

Often called the Galapagos of North America, the Channel Islands lie just off the Southern California coast, in plain sight of millions of people. However, few know the names of these islands or even how many there are. Fewer still know the fascinating tales of those who’ve lived, worked, discovered, surfed, dived, ranched, wrecked, or were rescued on these unique and beautiful islands. West of the West – Tales from California’s Channel Islands delves deeper into the history of the Channel Islands in a three-part film series.

Part one of this series explores the earliest history of the Channel Islands. Spanning the discovery of 13,000 year-old Arlington Springs Man, the oldest human remains ever found in North America, to the true story of the ‘Lone Woman of San Nicolas,’ the inspiration for the bestselling children’s book Island of the Blue Dolphins, this installment covers ancient peoples of the Channel Islands.

Running time 60 minutes

For reservations, please call during business hours, beginning one week prior to the event.
