One Night Only - Benefits the Charlevoix Cinema III

Cast & Crew In Attendance

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 for almost 100 years, even as the world changed endlessly around them. Local teen Bernie Rosendahl’s modern crusade to restore the historic arthouse to its former glory leads filmmakers to discover a hidden cinema empire in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Portraying the history of movies through one iconic screen - Marqueetown is the true story of chasing your dreams, and redefining success and failure.

Director's Statement

As children of the 1980s and 1990s, found ourselves creating a sort of emotional obituary for the cinema experiences of our youth in the background of dedicating ourselves to telling Bernie’s personal story faithfully and in great detail. Creatively as documentarians, we had to retroactively bring the theater and characters to life, since many of them were gone. In response to that challenge, we turned to an innocent hand-made aesthetic for recreations and a storyworld that required a suspension of disbelief - intentionally multi-dimensional and playful, in the spirit of reembracing the enduring magic of cinema
