Wildrose film screening fundraiser
To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the 1984 film Wildrose, we hosted a special screening at the City Auditorium on Saturday, November 2., at 6 p.m. A social time began at 4:00 and featured a cash bar by Margie's Roosevelt, which was featured in the film. The Eveleth Clown Band was supposed to perform but was unable to attend. Following the screening, director John Hanson and others from the film will shared their memories.
Wildrose is about a female miner who falls in love with a coworker during the economic downturn of the early '80s. The movie was mostly filmed in Eveleth and features iconic scenes like Eveleth Taconite, the Eveleth Clown Band, the 4th of July, and the Roosevelt Bar.
