The first picture show - Port Townsend

Port Townsend has seen a few feature films made in the fair city. There’s “An Officer and a Gentleman,” “The Ring” and “Enough,” to name just three. But none is as distinctive as “The Last of Us,” which has its already sold-out world premiere at the Rose Theatre on Friday, Jan. 21.

“The Last of Us” – the brainchild of friends Wes Cecil and Jeremiah Morgan – wasn’t just filmed here. It was written and produced here, all with Port Townsend talent behind and in front of the camera. In the story, a man, played by Richard Clairmont, recalls his pre-World War II childhood with his parents and brother in Prague.
