Story of Winter

Dear Camera Club Friends,

As many of you know I have been working on a movie about winter in Minnesota for the past two years. Well, we did it! We have finished our movie, are ready to screen it, and would like to invite you to be part of the experience with us. Please join us at the Parkway Theater (http://theparkwaytheater.com/) on Saturday October 25th for the premiere of our film, The Story of Winter.

Enjoy watching the movie trailer: https://vimeo.com/108053945
Tickets are available at: (http://storyofwinter.brownpapertickets.com/).

  • Doors open to general public at 6:30 pm, with mingling and cash bar;
  • From 7:00 pm - 7:40 pm we will host a pre-screening program on stage;
  • Film screening begins at 7:45 pm, Q&A/discussion to follow;
  • We expect to be wrapped up between 9:00 pm and 9:15 pm, but the movie team will stick around for further mingling and questions;
  • Ticket prices are $15 for 1, $25 for two (plus a small service fee) using Brown Paper Tickets (http://storyofwinter.brownpapertickets.com/). In the event that we have any remaining seats available, we will sell tickets at the door for $20 each. We strongly encourage you to buy online, as it will save you money and will really help the venue plan its staffing needs.

Other items of note:

The Parkway is in a residential neighborhood. Parking is limited. Pepito’s Restaurant (who owns the theater) does have a valet service. You can either use that, or give yourself the extra time to find a spot.  A cash bar will be available when doors open to the public, and after the screening as well. If you would like to eat, we encourage you to make reservations at Pepito’s for a meal before the screening.  You may also order food from Pepito’s and bring it into the Parkway, though they will likely be extremely busy during the mingling time and the screening. We are very excited to share our film with you, and we look forward to seeing you on the 25th.

Need a wet darkroom or thinking of trying one?

This is the e-mail sent to us from Bob Kosmalski:  651-771-7669;  e-mail   kosma001@umn.edu

"Moving to Oregon.

Know of anybody who needs a wet darkroom?

Prized possession is a 36 inch drying drum.

I really would like to trade the big drum for a smaller one.  Or buy a smaller drum.
