Donna Winter Film Festival Kicks Off with “Jurassic Park”

The Donna Winter Film Festival kicks off with Jurassic Park on Jan. 4 at 7 pm. The festival is named after the former Donna Theatre (now the location of Third Avenue Playhouse).

Donna Theatre first opened its doors in 1949 with the Hollywood adventure film, King Solomon’s Mines. It continued to show movies in downtown Sturgeon Bay until it closed in the mid-1990s. In honor of it cinematic past, TAP has created the first Donna Winter Film Festival. In the coming weeks, E.T., Back to the Future, Bonnie and Clyde and Goldfinger will be shown, each with an accompanying cartoon and other surprises.

Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted. The festival continues through March 22. To see the complete schedule, visit
