Dart to host March 8 screening of ‘USS Indianapolis: The Legacy’

LCC will host a screening of a documentary about the USS Indianapolis, a heavy cruiser torpedoed during World War II, leading to the loss of nearly 900 lives.

In July 1945, the USS Indianapolis secretly delivered components of the atomic bomb to Tinian island. A few days after the delivery, the ship was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine. The 880 sailors who survived the sinking battled searing sun, thirst, hundreds of sharks – and ultimately each other. After their rescue, the 317 survivors banded together in a 54-year fight to clear the name of their captain.

Set to an original score,USS Indianapolis: The Legacy” is a story told through 104 gripping interviews with survivors, rescuers and family members of both those who survived and those who were lost at sea. You can view a trailer on YouTube.

The screening begins with a 6 p.m. welcome at Dart Auditorium. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
