GRAND ISLAND, NE — In honor of the Grand Theater’s 100th Anniversary, the town is honoring its biggest supporter, Wally Kemp, along with a slate including a book release and a vintage documentary presentation.

For Grand Island native John Sorensen, the timing of the upcoming Grand Event was “cosmic.”

It’s the culmination of a number of historic anniversaries and events the release of two books about Grand Island’s history, the 100th anniversary of the first movie theater opening in Grand Island and the 150th birthday of Hall County, to name a few.

So to celebrate the city’s history and remember the early beginnings of Grand Island’s movie theaters, Sorensen and a number of local sponsors will host The Grand Event at the Grand Theater on Aug. 19.
