WHEN: Thursday, December 19th, 2019 at 4pm
WHERE: Depoe Bay Harbor (by Dockside Charters)
The Depoe Bay Chamber is hosting an unveiling of the newest sign on the Oregon Film Trail in the World’s Smallest Harbor (between dock 1 and 2). A reception will follow at Dockside Charters harbor location.

This sign marks an important filming location related to the classic feature film, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest and features a few facts and anecdotes about the film. The Depoe Bay harbor featured prominently in the film when Jack Nicholson’s character, Randle “Mac” McMurphy, staged an escape from hospital and led his fellow patients to the harbor where they commandeered a fishing boat and took it out for a day’s fishing. Dockside Charters provided the picture boat for the film when it was shot in March 1975.
