Get out your leather jackets, pull on your bobby socks and take a trip to the fabulous fifties with this original rock ‘n’ roll musical.

Join the Rydell High School class of 1959 including head “greaser” Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski as they try to relive their summer romance along with the T-Birds, the Pink Ladies, and the rest of the gang singing their way through such classic hits as “Summer Nights”, “Greased Lightnin’” and many more favorites, recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard, and Elvis Presley .


Rebel Without A Cause

The bad boy from a good family.

August 18, 2019



Jim Stark is the new kid in town.

He’s been in trouble elsewhere; that’s why his family had to move. Here, he hopes to find the love he doesn’t get from his middle-class family.

Though he finds some of this in his relation with Judy, and a form of it in both Plato’s adulation and Ray’s real concern for him, Jim must still prove himself to his peers in switchblade knife fights and “chickie” games in which cars race toward a seaside cliff.

Starring James Dean & Natalie Wood (1955).

  • Tickets: $12
  • The Concessions and maurices Lounge & Bar will open at 6:15pm.
  • Film viewing begins at  7:00pm.
  • A post-show discussion will follow in the Minnesota Power Mezzanine Lounge, where drinks will also be available.

See classic films as they were meant to be seen: on the BIG SCREEN in Duluth’s historic movie palace! Stick around for a drink and chat about the movie afterward!

Hosted and introduced by Jody Kujawa, Jason Scorich, and Justin Peck, this classic film series is held monthly.

Stay tuned for an announcement of the new 2019-2020 viewing season will be as well as new updates for Classic Film Series programming!

Tommy Emmanuel, CGP with special guest Joe Robinson

“If you like guitar playing, it simply doesn’t get any better than Tommy.” – Jason Isbell

October 13, 2019

Doors @ 7pm, Show @ 8pm


Tommy Emmanuel has achieved enough musical milestones to satisfy several lifetimes. Or at least they would if he was the kind of artist who was ever satisfied. At the age of six, he was touring Australia with his family band. By 30, he was a rock ‘n’ roll lead guitarist burning up stadiums in Europe. At 44, he became one of five people ever named a Certified Guitar Player by his idol, music icon Chet Atkins.

Tommy has developed a style of solo guitar playing that encompasses the range of a whole band—covering drums, bass, rhythm, and lead guitar and a vocal melody simultaneously. No loop pedals, no overdubs, just one man and ten fingers. While thousands of fans have spent years trying to unpack and imitate Tommy’s technique, for him, it’s just the delivery system. His approach is always song and emotion first, his music the embodiment of his soulful spirit, sense of hope and his love for entertaining.

Today, he plays hundreds of sold-out shows every year. All the while, Tommy has hungered for what’s next. When you’re widely acknowledged as the international master of the solo acoustic guitar, what’s next is Accomplice One, an album of collaborations with some of the finest singers, songwriters and, yes, guitarists alive today.

This event is produced by Jade Presents.
