Titanic the Exhibition
At this off-site gallery, South Street Seaport Museum separates fact from fiction in this exhibition comparing historical documents with pop-culture depictions of the sinking. Letters, photographs and transcriptions of Titanic’s Mayday calls tell the stories of ship captain E.J. Smith, chief officer Henry Wilde and White Star managing director Bruce Ismay. Posters from the first iteration of James Cameron’s Titanic and the 1958 movie A Night to Remember, as well as items used in an upcoming four-part ABC miniseries about the tragedy, show the voyage’s influence on film and TV.
