On Feb. 5 at 7 pm, Door Community Auditorium (DCA), in conjunction with Fish Creek Winter Festival, will sponsor a screening of the Tony Shalhoub film Feed the Fish, which has been a favorite of Door County audiences ever since it was filmed on the peninsula in 2009. Set in Door County, Feed the Fish tells the story of Joe, a frustrated children’s book writer in Los Angeles. To break through his writer’s block, Joe agrees to accompany his brother to Jacksonport to participate in the Polar Bear Plunge. The house where the brothers stay is isolated and when Joe’s pal is hospitalized with a badger bite, Joe befriends a local hermit, develops a crush on the man’s granddaughter, and must deal with the local sheriff’s dislike of anyone from out of town. As Christmas approaches, things get even more complicated.
Feed the Fish stars Green Bay native Tony Shalhoub (Monk), is directed by Michael Matzdorff, and features appearances by many familiar Door County faces.
DCA is located on Highway 42 in Fish Creek. The box office is open 12 – 5 pm, Monday through Friday. For more information, call 920.868.2728 or visit dcauditorium.org.
