Thatcher, AZ— EAC's Media Communications Department will premeir an original film entitled, “The Wham Robbery” on Wednesday, April 16, 2014, at 7 p.m., in the EAC Activities Center – Lee Little Theater. Admission to the premier is free, and the movie is suitable for all audiences.

“This historical re-enactment of the 1889 Wham robbery is a great way to bring local history to life,” says David Arond, EAC Media Communications instructor. “Working on an authentic western was a major challenge for the EAC Media Students. Coordinating the video crew, cast, a team of horses pulling an 1899 wagon, Buffalo Soldiers re-enactors, and guns and outlaws in the Arizona desert was a true learning experience.”
