TRYLON PRESENTS: HOLLYWOOD’S NORTH STAR: MINNESOTANS IN THE MOVIES
I’ve praised the Trylon many times before with a variety of their series like Joan vs. Bette and their annual Hitchcock Festival. If you’re from Minnesota, you know how much pride we have in our state and any local connection we can make to the movie industry.
Every Thursday in July, Trylon is hitting the road and showcasing Minnesota talent at the Heights Theater in Columbia Heights, MN. It’s one of my favorite little arthouses in town. Here’s the line-up:
