Closing Night: SIX LOCKED DOORS

SIX LOCKED DOORS: THE LEGACY OF COCOANUT GROVE examines the story behind the deadliest nightclub fire in American history. On November 28, 1942, the Cocoanut Grove nightclub in Boston attracted a mix of socialites, athletes, celebrities and military personnel. With double the allowed occupants, locked doors, and flammable materials, the fire left 492 people dead. Featuring interviews with survivors and local notables including The Boston Globe’s Kevin Cullen and former mayor Ray Flynn, SIX LOCKED DOORS explores how corruption, greed and a former gangster-run speakeasy led to an unimaginable tragedy.
