Lights, Camera, Marquee!

March 23, 2024

Traverse City’s community arts venue The Alluvion will roll out the red carpet for the world premiere screening of Marqueetown on March 31 at 7pm. Yes, that’s Easter Sunday; it’s also almost 88 years exactly from the opening night of The Nordic Theater in Marquette. The documentary—100 percent made in Michigan and the brainchild of Traverse Citians Joseph Beyer and Jordan Anderson—follows the crusade to preserve the lasting magic of cinema, even as the world moves forward. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the cast and crew, and later an afterparty downstairs at NoBo Mrkt. For tickets ($10 plus fees), visit thealluvion.org; proceeds will benefit Crosshatch Center for Art & Ecology. For more on the film, including other upcoming showings around the region, head to marqueetown.com.
