The 2021 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with Waves of Change: The Story of Myrtle Beach, SC. Written and produced by Barbara Stokes, this series follows almost a century in the history, development, and people of the sleepy beach village that became a national tourist destination. It explores how the community of Myrtle Beach has dealt with two major goals: to bring people to the beach and to build a hometown. The film also explores some of the major setbacks to development as well as the forces and people that propelled its growth. And it discusses the next wave of change-continued increase in growth and the challenges that come with that growth.
The film is free to the public and will be shown at 1:00 PM, Wednesday, July 14th, at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street in Conway.
The Horry County Museum Documentary Film Matinees will continue throughout 2021. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
