Warren Miller’s “Here There & Everywhere” – Ironwood Theatre – November 26, 2016

Ironwood TheatreWarren Miller’s Here There and Everywhere It’s been 67 years since ski-film pioneer Warren Miller first picked up a camera to capture the wonder, adventure, humor, and beauty that is skiing. Since that time, Warren Miller film crews have traveled the globe -from storied slopes to hidden, snow-covered corners -to celebrate all things snowsports. Their quest has taken powder-hungry filmgoers, Here, There & Everywhere – and this year continues that legacy.

This fall, witness a freeform, freeski adventure in Warren Miller Entertainment’s 67th snowsports film, Here, There & Everywhere. See JT Holmes, Jeremy Jones, Grette Eliassen, Collin Collins, Ingrid Backstrom, Tyler Ceccanti, Wendy Fisher and more as they sweep across the expanses of Alaska, Montana’s Glacier Country, Deer Valley, Greenland, Switzerland and more in the pursuit of the perfect turns. This year, don’t miss Warren Miller himself spin tales of the past as only Warren can do, reminding us that through the years, these films have truly taken audiences Here, There & Everywhere.

This stop on the 2016 Warren Miller tour is promoted by the Snow Country Ski Club, formerly the Ironwood Ski Devils, our local High School Ski Racing Team. The club is no longer funded by the school system. Parents of racers, racers and volunteers fundraise to help keep local youth skiers active, engaged, and competitive on the racing circuit that covers Upper and Lower Michigan and Northern Wisconsin. The club is very proud of its long track record and deep history. The local skiing community is strong and many of these long time skiers are Ski Devil Alumni. There are many fond memories of the ski devil travelling team, its successes and championships and its former long term Michigan Hall of Fame coach, Theron Peterson.

The Snow Country Ski Club partnered with us at the Theatre and with Warren Miller to bring this premier movie to our ski town. This is one of the very important fund raisers that help cover travel expenses, lift tickets, equipment maintenance, coaching, and more. So buy some tickets and bring a few friends to the movie and get your Stoke for Winter! Winter is coming!

Doors and Kelly’s Bar open at 6:30 pm (CST). Here, There & Everywhere screens at 7:30 (CST), but come early, hang out with your ski crowd and dig into the latest gear on display by our local sponsors.

As of this afternoon there are only 44 general admission tickets for the main floor. Maybe 70 reserved, and quite a few balcony seats. They are going fast

Bought ours this week! Can't wait for the show!

We'll be there!

~ HIT History ~
In 1982, owner Thomas Renn gave the Theatre building to the City of Ironwood through the Downtown Ironwood Development Authority (DIDA). Restoration efforts began at that time under the direction of the newly formed Ironwood Theatre Preservation Committee. On January 11, 1985, the Ironwood Theatre was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places.

In 1986, the DIDA was awarded a grant by the State of Michigan, beginning an extensive renovation program that was on-going for nearly 10 years. Renovations completed in the early phase included the seats in the main auditorium and balcony, lobby & mezzanine carpeting, restoration of the ceiling mural, wall and beam decorations, a new stage floor, updated heating system and upgraded sound system.Later restoration efforts include custom-made organ vent curtains funded by a grant from the Albert W. Cherne Foundation, and ventilation system improvements partly funded by the Michigan Council of the Arts and Cultural Affairs.

The Ironwood Theatre was incorporated in 1988 as an independent, non-profit cultural organization and the building is leased from the City of Ironwood. Ironwood Theatre, Inc. assumes all operating costs, maintenance and repairs of the facility. In the absence of local tax support, it is funded by ticket sales, user fees, several annual fund raisers, program grants from a number of private and public foundations, including the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA), area business support and other fundraising activities. The Ironwood Theatre is a volunteer based organization with an 9-member Board of Directors, one full time staff person, more than 30 regular volunteers and more than 100 individuals who volunteer their time and talents because the believe in the theatre and the central role it plays in the cultural life of so many nearby communities

We have been making new history since 2017...a new roof, new boiler heating system, & a new sound system going in presently. We also have a new office manager. 🎭

Here's the 1928 entrance of the theatre. Did you know that the theatre never owned it ? Do you know who owns it now ?

Let's keep the light on IRONWOOD It is your support that does so. 🎭

Pleased to have been involved with the City and DDA early on in this effort. The people of Ironwood should be proud of everything that’s been accomplished. It’s a real gem of a community asset!

Sure get an excited,good feeling when the beautiful marquee is shining; thanks for all of your work!

An amazing theatre❣️

Love going to HIT. I feel lucky to have such a piece of history right here. Great job Volunteers!

Great place, great history, great people!

Great job all!

POP THE TOP HAT SONG FOR THE IRONWOOD THEATRE In the golden age of vaudeville in the silent movies day They built a palace up in Ironwood Michigan back in 1928 An architect named Nelson (I like that name) and one A. L. Pikar A hundred sixty thousand dollars that's two million today 84 years ago 84 years ago Made it thru the depression .. then the good times were on a roll In the Hollywood shine of the 30's thru the world war two In the early 1960's to Thomas Theatres it was sold First run movies played along in 1982 it was closed 30 years ago 30 years ago Then Thomas Renn gave it to the city and the restoration began Up to this very evening with the help of so many friends The mural and the Barton Organ and the auditorium Pop the top hat now the live shows live again Take a look around see what you done done Take a look around see what you done done Congratulations!

Historic Ironwood Theatre

When the musical Mamma Mia at Theatre North came to end back in June of 2019, most of the cast thought they’d put away their platform shoes and hung up their zoot suits for good. But one or two said I Have A Dream that one day we will sing together again. When it was announced that the internationally renowned ABBA Mania were coming to Ironwood and the Mamma Mia cast were asked if they’d like to join the band on stage, understandably they said I Do, I Do, I Do. So come along to the Historic Ironwood Theatre on Thursday January 30 to support your friends as they – and their kids – join the band for a song or two.
Tickets are selling fast. Procrastination could be your Waterloo. Don’t leave yourself sending out an S.O.S. the day before the show because you didn’t buy tickets. Get your Money, Money, Money together and then go on-line (www.ironwoodtheatre.net) or call the box office (906.932.0618) to reserve you seat now. Do you want to be heard saying “I let the chance to catch this wonderful show go Slipping Through My Fingers.”? Or will be on your feet after the show screaming Thank You For the Music? The choice is yours!
