The films, “This is Mi Vida” and “Million Dollar Drill Holes” are promotional movies that feature color footage of Moab and uranium mine work during the 1950s boom years.
Each film is approximately 35 minutes in length. Following the screening, Mark Steen, the son of “Uranium King” Charlie Steen, will present a question-and-answer session with the audience. Mark Steen grew up in the Moab area during the time his father discovered and mined historic high-grade uranium deposits in the Lisbon Valley area south of Moab. The elder Steen’s find prompted the “uranium rush” in the Four Corners region of southeast Utah.
“This is a great historical look back at a transitional time in Moab’s history,” said Museum of Moab Director John Foster.
The event is open to the public and free of charge.
