West Greenlanders and crewmen of the Bowdoin, a schooner built especially for Arctic exploration, watch film footage.

Donald MacMillan, who stands by the projector near the schooner's wheel, and his wife, Miriam, frequently filmed Inuit people, their activities and environment.

Occasionally "Mac" showed Hollywood films, too. Both the vessel's crew and their northern visitors delighted in "going to the pictures."
