The Liberty Theatre in Camas is marking the anniversary of 9/11 with the acclaimed documentary, “Man in Red Bandana,” showing at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 10, and again at 8 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 11.
This film tells the story of how the courageous and selfless actions of one man can touch and inspire thousands. It’s a documentary about Welles Remy Crowther, who saved at least ten people on Sept. 11, 2001, at the cost of his own life. He may have looked like investment banker, but there was one unorthodox piece to his personal dress code, tucked in the back right pocket of every set of trousers: a red bandana that his father had given him when he was a boy.
Bewildered and frightened, people huddled in the smoke and darkness that day on the 78th floor of the World Trade Center’s south tower—until they heard a voice, clear and calm, leading them to the stairs and to safety. Their guide was a young man holding a red handkerchief over his face. Having helped them, he then went back up the stairs to help others. They didn’t know his name. They didn’t know where he came from. But they knew their lives had been saved by the man in the red bandana.
Admission is $8. Tickets are on sale at the theater box office or online at camasliberty.com. The Liberty Theatre is located at 315 N.E. 4th Ave. in downtown Camas.
