Despite bearing the brunt of many jokes, the movie Titanic can still make most folks cry. There's just something about that ill-fated behemoth and its doomed journey that continues to capture our hearts. And while we love a good cry-fest as much as the next sap, we know of something even better than watching a fictionalized account of two lovers aboard the once-mighty ship: a real-live look at some items recovered from her underwater resting spot! Titanic: Treasures from the Deep makes a stop at Chesterfield Mall (291 Chesterfield Mall) this weekend, and the traveling show brings with it more than 50 artifacts from the ship and her passengers. Admission to the exhibition is free, and it's also free to get a portrait made on Titanic's grand staircase (at least, it looks like you're there — this is an exhibit, not a scuba-diving trip). To learn more about the show, visit; the artifacts are on view from noon to 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday (July 16 through 19).
