Matinee Movie: 'You Can't Take It With You'

A Frank Capra classic with an amazing cast, "You Can't Take it With You" won Best Picture in 1938 and tells a quirky story of love versus social class and property. This movie is a wonderful reminder of what is most important in life, and The Field House would like to welcome you to join us to be reminded of such things, have some fun, and maybe even grab a style tip or two from the old pros of the silver screen. Free.

Matinee Movie: 'Alone in the Wilderness'

Come celebrate the life of Dick Proenneke, as The Field House shows the first of more-to-come movies. Dick Proenneke retired at age 50 in 1967 and decided to build his own cabin on the shore of Twin Lakes. The first summer he scouted for the best cabin site, and cut and peeled the logs he would need for his cabin. Dick Proenneke returned the next summer to finish the cabin where he lived for over 30 years. Dick filmed his adventures, and Bob Swerer later turned the film into a video so we can all watch this amazing man build his cabin by hand. Free.
