As most of you have probably noticed, the front of our building above the theater doors looks very different. The time has finally come where we had no choice but to have our marquee removed. The City of Mineral Point Property Committee acted upon recommendations from an engineering firm and a local building expert who felt the structure could not bear another winter of snow, ice and runoff. The marquee, made chiefly of wood, has suffered water damage and general age-related deterioration through the years.
Unfortunately, due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are saddened to announce that the Driftless Film Festival will not be staged this year. Rest assured, this has not been an easy decision, and we take absolutely no joy in bringing this news to you. However, we plan on coming back in 2021 better than ever!
Stay safe, and keep supporting independent cinema.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all events scheduled to occur at the MPOH until spring 2021 have been canceled or postponed.
We will attempt to reschedule these events after the crisis has passed. Tickets that have been purchased for the show either will be honored for the rescheduled date or will be refunded if we are not able to accommodate another date. Alternatively you may choose to donate the cost of the tickets back to the MPOH as we are a nonprofit run theater, and you will receive a tax deductible receipt. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a fluid situation, and we are awaiting further guidance from local health officials. If this changes, we will let you know as soon as we are able. We will keep our schedule updated on our website. For further updates, please monitor our Facebook page.
Thank you for your understanding, and thank you for supporting the Mineral Point Opera House!
