Event Details

The Alluvion will be transformed into a cozy movie theater and when we drop the big screen for a very special, one night only, World Premiere screening of the documentary Marqueetown - 88 years after the opening night of The Nordic Theater (one of the subjects in the film.) There will be a full bar offered and special concessions. A Q&A panel will follow the screening. Only 100 seats available! All proceeds will benefit Crosshatch Center for Art & Ecology.

No one fights to preserve a multiplex, but some people will risk everything to save a marquee. Through booms and busts, Delft Theatres Inc. - and its innovative gem, The Nordic - endured in Marquette Michigan for almost 100 years, even as the world changed endlessly around them. Local kid Bernie Rosendahl’s modern crusade to restore the historic arthouse to its former glory leads filmmakers to discover a hidden cinema empire in the Upper Peninsula.

Portraying the fascinating history of motion pictures through one iconic screen - and featuring dozens of real-life Marquette locations and characters - Marqueetown is the true story of chasing your dreams, redefining failure and success, and reembracing the enduring magic of cinema.
