GOLD TOWN, THE MOVIE
Mar 30 @ 6:30 pm

Way back in 1996 Lisle set out to make a docudrama of the founding of the city of Juneau, and two years later he had built this theater as a dedicated space for its screening.  We are very proud to return to our roots with this highly entertaining and enlightening 35-minute film which dramatically depicts the famous–and infamous–people and incidents that paved the way for the city of today.

  • HENRY’S STORY (15 min) Shot in 1973, this short documentary focuses on one of Juneau’s most famous, and infamous, downtown dwellers.lisle 2
LITTLE RED BOOK
Mar 31 @ 7:30 pm

Lisle Hebert, the founder of Gold Town Theater, spent half a decade laboring over his only feature-length film, this romantic tragicomedy of a man desperate to hold on to the woman he adores, even after she leaves him for another man!  Starring an all-local cast, it was all filmed here in Lisle’s hometown, and we are proud to bring it back to his screen.

Yeah, that’s right, James Cameron’s real opus, not that sinking boat crap!  And we got  a submarine!!  Science on Screen pairs cult, classic, & documentary films with associated talks from notables in the science field.  For this classic underwater sci-fi thriller, we’ve asked Michelle Ridgway to present on her work in deep sea Arctic submarine exploration, both manned & unmanned.
