Museum Matinee:Charlie's Place

Aug 22, 2018

  • Venue: Horry County Museum
  • Address: 805 Main Street,, Conway, SC 29526
  • Time: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM

The 2018 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with the SCETV documentary, Charlie’s Place. This film tells the story of an African American nightclub owned by Charlie Fitzgerald in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Despite the fact that much of the South was segregated during the time, both blacks and whites were welcomed into the club. This drew unwanted attention from groups like the KKK, who attacked Charlie’s Place one night in 1950.
The film is free to the public and will be shown at 1:00 PM, Wednesday, August 22nd, at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street in Conway.
The Horry County Museum Documentary Film Matinees will continue throughout 2018. For a full list of films, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org. For more information, call the Horry County Museum at 843-915-5320 or e-mail hcgmuseum@horrycounty.org.
