MARQUETTE, Mich. (WZMQ) – Two Marquette historians are back again with a silent film presentation showcasing Upper Peninsula history.
Jack Deo and Jim Koski are teaming up to present Lights, Camera, Marquette at the Lake Superior Theater Monday night at 7:30. This is the second time the pair have put the films on display, they previously put on the show at the Kaufman Theatre.
The films were discovered in a dumpster and saved in the 1980s. The show is a part of the ongoing superior memories series and features historical footage narrated by Deo and Koski. Proceeds from the event will go towards supporting the Lake Superior Theatre.
“The best part is Bob Buchkoe playing the actual piano accompaniment, he did that in January, this is probably the only other time we’re gonna have Bob accompanying it with a Piano,” added Deo.
Tickets for Monday’s show can be purchased here.
