“Lord of the Rings” Trilogy Screening Begins Feb. 26 at DCA

On Feb. 26 at 7 pm, Door Community Auditorium (DCA) will present a screening of the wildly popular 2001 film Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. This marks the first of three consecutive Friday Lord of the Rings screenings, in which DCA presents all three parts of director Peter Jackson’s film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic science fiction trilogy.

In Part 1, The Fellowship of the Ring, Elijah Wood stars as Frodo Baggins, a hobbit resident of a land called “Middle-earth.” Early on, Frodo discovers that a ring bequeathed to him is in fact the “One Ring,” a device that will allow its master to manipulate dark powers and enslave the world. Frodo is charged by the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) to return the ring to Mount Doom, the evil site where it was forged millennia ago and the only place where it can be destroyed.

On Feb. 27 at 9 am, DCA will offer a lecture titled “African-American Settlement in 19th-Century Northeast Wisconsin,” presented by St. Norbert College professor of history Dr. Victoria Tashjian. Tashjian will discuss the African-American presence that has been continuous in Wisconsin since shortly after the arrival of French fur traders—a history that is often forgotten. She will also address a near-lost strand of local history, drawing upon surprisingly rich sources of information available in area archives.

Both the screening and lecture are free to the public, but freewill donations are encouraged. At the lecture Base Camp Coffee Shop will have refreshments for purchase.

DCA is located on Highway 42 in Fish Creek. For more information, call 920.868.2728 or visit
