Seventy-year-old Elk Rapids Cinema celebrates renovations
ELK RAPIDS, MI — When the Elk Rapids Cinema first opened as the State, “Gone with the Wind” and “The Wizard of Oz” were still being talked about as new movies. Now, seventy years later, this small town, single-screen theater is throwing a party to herald its most recent renovations and is also hosting a showing of “West Side Story.”
A party will be held beginning at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 18, with a special screening of “West Side Story,” followed by a reception at Siren Hall.
Wednesday’s celebration is in collaboration with Art Rapids. Tickets are available at Twisted Fish Gallery, Mullaly’s 128 or at the cinema. Art Rapids board members also have tickets to sell and an order form is available at www.artrapids.org Tickets are $20 per person for the movie and snacks. Tickets for the post-movie reception are $20 per person. Money raised will support Art Rapids scholarships and grants.
