When the Biloxi Visitors Center premieres its new film short, "The History of Biloxi," Tuesday evening, it will be a special moment for the Biloxi Chamber of Commerce, which helped fund the new 11-minute documentary.
"Our own history is deeply rooted in the site of the Visitors Center, as it was the original location of the Biloxi Chamber of Commerce before Hurricane Katrina," said Chamber Director Rachael Seymour. "We are fortunate to have an office in the Visitors Center, thanks to the generosity of the city, and we were certainly happy to partner with the city and the Mississippi Humanities Council on this important project. This film will be educational for visitors and residents alike."
The city's Museums Division will officially premiere "The History of Biloxi" on Tuesday beginning at 5 p.m. Free showings will be every 30 minutes through 6:30 p.m. The premiere is open to everyone, but because of limited seating reservations are encouraged. The first 150 attendees who complete a project evaluation will receive a free gift.
The Biloxi Visitors Center, at 1050 Beach Blvd. and adjacent to the Biloxi Lighthouse, is operated by the City of Biloxi and open seven days a week. To make reservations for the premiere, call (228) 374-3105 or 1-800-BILOXI-3 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
