The Catskills Come to Boca Raton

The evening will be a celebration of the glory days of the Catskills. The event starts off with a short film about the history of the Catskills and the magical era that made it the entertainment capital of the world. Following the film will be performances by two comedians that will invoke memories of the Borscht Belt’s heyday of vaudevillian entertainment. Elaine Grossinger Etess will then present on the history of Grossinger’s Resort, one of the great hotels of the world in its day. The program will wrap up with a short film of the now dilapidated and abandoned Catskill resorts, followed by a discussion on the importance of the history of Catskill resorts and why that history must be preserved for future generations.
