This inspiring documentary film tells the story of historic, small-town theatres, their owners and their movie-goers in rural South Dakota. It focuses on the theatres' origins and closings in the late '70s, early '80s. The film highlights the theatre's revival by well-intended, prominent community members and volunteer-community supporters who are faced with renovation, maintenance, operating costs, and the struggle to compete with distant, large-city Stadium Theatres.
