Saenger to host a look back at Camille

Longtime south Mississippi residents will have a chance to rekindle memories of the original monster storm when the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art and City of Biloxi will present “Camille: The 45th Anniversary Remembrance,” on Sunday, Aug. 17, at the Saenger Theater.

The presentation, which begins at 2 p.m., will feature a ’70s documentary about the Category 5 hurricane, and a storm-preparation message from Mayor A.J. Holloway that originally aired on Aug. 17, 2005, a mere 12 days before another storm, Katrina, decimated the coastline.

Highlight of the afternoon is expected to be a never-before-seen interview with Daniel D. Guice Sr., mayor of Biloxi when Camille struck.

Tickets for the event are $10 each and can be purchased at the Biloxi Visitors Center or the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art.
