Someone should send forward page to Ellen Degeneres producers. A perfect way to increase the Ellen’s donations kitty.

She could comically build a road trip show around “her” name finally being up in lights, and bring a few days revenue boost to both the theatre and the town of Bozeman.
She could interview the famous residents listed above, as well as any folksy local residents exclusively.

  1. In 1992, Robert Redford and cast members premiered “A River Runs Through It” at the Ellen, setting a house record box office of $14,895. Joseph McBride, Variety.com (Oct 19, 1992)

  2. In September 2004, Peter Fonda accepted the Gary Cooper Spirit of Montana Award on-stage at the Ellen. Fonda, along with other Hollywood celebs like Jeff Bridges, Rick Schroeder, Michael Keaton, and Margot Kidder live in the neighborhood. Gary Cooper, a Montana native, was also a close friend of Fonda’s father, Henry. Peter Fonda was being recognized primarily for his contribution to, and mentorship of, local artists – especially at the Montana State University film school. Scott McMillion, Bozeman Daily Chronicle (Sep. 04, 2004).
