CALUMET -- The June Club Indigo, a precursor to FinnFestUSA, is the next offering at the Calumet Theatre. It is a Jan Troell (director of The Emigrant) film Everlasting Moments, based on a true story and starring Finnish actress Maria Heiskanen in the role of a mother of seven and wife of a womanizing lout of a husband. She finds escape through a camera which opens up a new world to her. The early 1900s are magnificently created, shot in a sort of sepia color to suggest the portraits our heroine creates so very successfully despite all odds -- beautifully acted, beautifully directed, beautifully memorable.
The film begins at 7:15 p.m. Friday, June 14, and will be preceded at 6 p.m. by a Finnish buffet from the chefs at the Kangas Café, Hancock. Cost is $19 for film and buffet, $5 for film alone. Special discount for children ten and younger. To attend the buffet, a call should be made to the Calumet Theatre by Thursday, June 13. Please call 337-2610.
Note to the hearing impaired: the theatre has been wired for amplification of sound for your adaptable hearing aid.
