Enjoy a movie about the stars under the stars on Aug. 31 at Newport State Park. The Emissary is set to be shown at the park pavilion, near parking lot 3, at 7 pm.
The Emissary is a family friendly, sci-fi epic adventure film shot in Door County. Many scenes were shot in Newport State Park with the Park’s night sky, star-filled backgrounds and a cast of local actors. After the show, viewers can meet director Tim Erskine and co-producer Holly Erskine. If conditions allow, a few telescopes might be set up for public star gazing. If weather prohibits outdoor viewing, the show will move indoors to the Nature Center.
Feel free to bring your own treats; popcorn is available. There are some picnic tables available, bring a chair and blankets in case. Mosquito repellant and red lights for after movie star gazing is recommended. The Emissary features local actors Tim and Holly Erskine, Kay Allmand, Peter Ciesla, Edward DiMaio, Paul Erskine, Jess Holland, Joel Kersebet, Mark Moede, Patrick Palmer and John Wilson.
