MILWAUKEE PREMIERE

In August, 1896, gold was discovered in northwestern Canada at Dawson City. What soon followed was a stampede of over 100,000 people in a massive gold rush to make their fortune, with over 40,000 settling in the city as residents. As the city swelled with people, it became the last stop in the film distribution line for turn of the century American cinema. Hundreds upon hundreds of films came into Dawson City to be viewed by its residents, but many of these films never left. That is until 1978, when a construction crew working in Dawson City made an amazing discovery, the last copies of 533 silent film reels buried beneath Dawson City’s frozen ground.

Join us as Dawson City: Frozen Time tells us on this miraculous true story and brings these films back to the big screen, a century after their debut.
