Columbus ships, the Nina and the Pinta, to land in Lorain!
9:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Lorain, OH. —On Friday, August 4th, the ‘Pinta’ and the ‘Nina’, replicas of Columbus’ Ships, will open in Lorain. The ships will be docked at Lorain Port Authority, 319 Black River Lane, until their departure early Wednesday morning, August 8th.
The ‘Nina’ was built completely by hand and without the use of power tools. Archaeology magazine called the ship “the most historically correct Columbus replica ever built.” In 2005, the ‘Pinta’, also a caravel, was launched in Brazil and was the first ship to sight land in the New World. Historians consider the caravel the Space Shuttle of the fifteenth century.
Both ships tour together as a new and enhanced ‘sailing museum’ for the purpose of educating the public and school children on the ‘caravel’, a Portuguese ship used by Columbus and many early explorers to discover the world. Before him, the Old World and the New remained separate and distinct continents and ever since their fates have been bound together for better or for worse.
While in port, the general public is invited to visit the ships for a walk-aboard, self-guided tour. Admission charges are $8.00 for adults, $ 7.00 for seniors, and $6.00 for students 5 - 16. Children 4 and under are Free. The ships are open every day from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. No reservations necessary.
Teachers or organizations wishing to schedule a 30 minute guided tour with a crew member should call 1 787 672 2152 or email columfnd1492@gmail.com . Minimum of 15. $5.00 per person. No Maximum. Visit our website at www.ninapinta.org.

City of Angels
8:00 PM
City of Angels is a clever tribute to 1940s film noir. With two plots running simultaneously, this ingenious musical skillfully weaves the real world and the “reel” world into one unforgettable adventure. When Stine embarks to faithfully adapt his novel into a screenplay, he discovers the difficulty of maintaining his artistic integrity against Hollywood movie moguls. As the line separating fantasy from reality is blurred, Stine must find a way to produce a happy ending! Contains adult language.
