Location: Riverview Theater

The Riverview Theater was built in 1948. The Sound of Music original Broadway production opened in 1959. The movie hit the screen in 1965. Seems so appropriate for this movie to be enjoyed at the beautiful Riverview Theater in sing-along style. The Riverview has many special screenings throughout the year. Brat pack themes, Hitchcock, and Christmas movies to name a few. Did I mention the best popcorn around?

Future of the Gorge

Location: St. Peders Church – 4600 E 42nd St

The Army Corps of Engineers is proposing to conduct a study of the Upper St. Anthony Falls Lock, Lower St. Anthony Falls Lock and Dam and Lock and Dam 1 (Ford Dam) to determine if the Federal government should continue to operate these three dams and maintain the river channel in between.

If the dams are removed, the gorge will return to its original state with white water rapids. This is sure to become the local hot topic issue in our neighborhood for the next several years.
