6PM Join award-winning documentary producer Richard Luckin for a showing of his just-released program Railroad Stations in American Life.An Evening of Colorado History. Relax, have a beverage, and travel back to a time when railroads shaped the American West.

This beautifully illustrated film documents the U.S. railroad station’s development from civic center into today’s temples of transportation. Researched by Peter A. Hansen and narrated by Michael Gross, the program presents a diverse cast of historians on-camera examining the role of the railroad station in America.

The railroad station was once an institution in American life, in small towns and big cities alike. This human-interest tale is interwoven with history as the program explores how people interacted with the stations in their towns through multiple generations. Locations are covered across the U.S. and include both stations still active in transportation, and others preserved but re-purposed. An intermission break will be included, plus Q&A with producer Luckin at the conclusion of the showing.
