On Wednesday, January 31, 2018 the Harbor History Museum, in partnership with Galaxy Theatres, will be screening the engaging and inspiring film, Her Aim is True. This documentary on rock and roll photographer Jini Dellaccio will be shown at the Galaxy Theatres in Uptown Gig Harbor, 4649 Point Fosdick Drive NW, Gig Harbor, WA 98335, at 6:30 p.m. on the 31st.

Tickets are $15 and include admission to the screening of Her Aim is True, admission to Harbor History Museum for a Curator Tour of “With a Loving Eye: The Photographs of Jini Dellaccio,” and entry into the evening’s raffle in which we will be giving away an autographed copy of Dellaccio’s Rock & Roll Photography book.

Her Aim Is True brings together musicians and rock photographers in an inspiring and unforgettable journey revealing unlikely rock 'n' roll photographer Jini Dellaccio, who visualized punk before it had a name and embodied indie before it was cool. In 1964, a middle-aged Dellaccio was hired to photograph raucous garage bands, shooting in natural settings around her Gig Harbor home to create innovative album covers. Soon she was capturing unprecedented portraits of Neil Young and early performances by The Who, Rolling Stones, Mitch Ryder and Mamas & Papas. An anthem for individual creativity, the film celebrates a legacy lost and found as it traces Dellaccio's ingenuity, spirit and style through participants in a gritty music subculture that like, Dellaccio, would set the bar for their descendants.

January 31st would have marked Jini Dellaccio's 101st birthday! What better way to celebrate than by screening Director Karen Whitehead's incredible documentary on Jini's life?
