A free event screening two films about iconic Puget Sound tugboats is scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday at Seattle’s Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park.

The event, a celebration of the 125th anniversary of tugboat Arthur Foss, will begin with the debut of “Arthur Foss: Iconic Tugboat of the Northwest,” a documentary produced by students of the Art Institute of Seattle.

The film will be followed with a screening of the 1933 film “Tugboat Annie.” The movie is based on Tacoma’s Thea Foss.
