Calumet Theater's Centennial Celebration

Happy 100th birthday to the gorgeous Calumet Theatre in Houghton County way up in the UP! This National Historic Landmark opened on Mar 20, 1900 and here is their newly hung curtain. So many famous people have graced their stage.....Sarah Bernhardt, Lon Chaney, John Phillip Sousa, and Douglas Fairbanks, Sr, just to name a few. The people of Calumet and surrounding communities have lovingly restored this beauty. Thank you to Laura Miller, Executive Director, for your insights and the use of your photo.
