Tonight Zenith City on Tap presents “The NorShor: Duluth’s Marquee Movie House” live at Glensheen. I'll be presenting the history of the 1941 Art Deco movie house—about to undergo a $30 million restoration—along with the stories of the two theaters that preceded it at the same location: the 1910 Orpheum vaudeville house and the 1889 Temple Opera House. Doors open at 6:45; program begins at 7:30. This event is free and open to the public.
