Screenings Announced of Upcoming Centralia Documentary

Filmmakers have announced screening of upcoming Documentary about Centralia.


"CENTRALIA, Pennsylvania’s Lost Town" is a documentary directed by Joe Sapienza II.

The film follows the story of Centralia and its infamous mine fire through the perspectives of former and current residents, the government’s own actions, and local news archives.

Joe Sapienza, a native of Philadelphia and camera assistant and assistant producer with NFL Films, is executive producer and director along with producer Allyson Kircher, an assistant at CESD Talent in New York who oversaw the project.

Over a four-year period, they successfully completed a documentary that will tell Centralia’s fate through the perspective of Centralia’s former and current residents, the government’s own actions, and local news archives. Joe screened a private rough cut of the documentary twice in the fall of 2016 to former cast, crew, and residents of Centralia and Byrnesville.
