triangle-shirtwaist-fire-doc.jpgOn the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the famous Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in New York City, which killed 146 workers and prompted labor reform in the United States, HBO is letting the basic-cable-subscribing public watch its recent documentary about the events.

"Triangle: Remembering the Fire" will re-air on CNN on Saturday, Mar. 26 at 11:00 p.m. ET -- just one day after the anniversary.

Shortly after debuting the film on HBO on Mar. 21, HBO and CNN released a joint statement announcing the decision to give it a wider audience in honor of the anniversary.
