“Discover the untold story of one of the world’s largest concentrations of climbable ice in a scrappy corner of the
American Midwest: Munising, Michigan.”

The Historic Vista Theater and the Peninsula Arts Appreciation Council are pleased to announce the opening of their 2016 entertainment season with the Marquette County Premiere of the Clear & Cold Cinema production “The Michigan Ice Film” at the Historic Vista Theater in Negaunee, May 6th, 7th & 8th.

Shot and produced in 2015, “The Michigan Ice Film” explores, the fascinating sport of ice climbing near Munising, MI, from it’s infancy to today. Along with spectacular shots of ice formations throughout the area along with stunning views and perspectives not oft seen by everyone; the film also captures the aspects of U.P. culture that help make us shine amongst other rural locales.

The weekend long event kicks off Friday May 6, with a very special opening celebration. The film will screen at 6:00 p.m., followed by a Question & Answer session with director Aaron Peterson, and it will cap off with a set from Marquette’s Nauticore (Heavy Folk) masters The Chanteymen. This opening, one-time event, will have a special price of $8.

The rest of the weekend’s shows will have the same price tag of $5, including the very special screening, and encore Q & A with Aaron Peterson Saturday May 7 at 6:30 pm.
