Capitol Theater Sat, May 25 7:30 PM


Based on the work of Bernie Rosendahl, Marqueetown tells the true story of one
Michigan resident’s modern crusade to restore the historic arthouse of his youth to its
former glory, a quest that leads the filmmakers to discover a hidden cinema empire in
the Upper Peninsula.

Portraying the fascinating 100-year-history of motion pictures through one iconic screen,
Marqueetown is about chasing your dreams, redefining failure and success, and
remembering the enduring magic of movies.

A new documentary on Marquette’s beloved historic Nordic and Delft
theaters – starring dozens of real-life Michigan locations and characters, as well as a
Traverse City-based cast and crew – has launched an independent tour across the state
to raise funds for local arthouses and arts venues.    

Ticket sales are a fundraiser for The Capitol.
