‘The Emissary’ Screens at Base Camp Coffee

Base Camp Coffee, located at 10904 Highway 42 in Sister Bay, will host a series of Final Friday screenings of the locally filmed sci-fi epic, The Emissary.

When a lone space traveler named Koyper (Peter Ciesla) lands his spaceship in Newport State Park, only to be witnessed by three Door County locals out on a sunset meditation walk, a life-saving and heartwarming adventure begins. Since its release the film has been loved by audiences near and far, perhaps because of its underlying philosophy of mindfulness.

“You live in a magical place on a magical world – never forget that,” Koyper explains to the Earthlings. “Being mindful of your moments is the greatest gift you can give yourself.”

The Emissary is described as a comical, science fiction adventure but it’s also a love story – a love of science, astronomy and each other. After the show, meet director Tim Erskine, co-producer Holly Erskine, and the cast members.

Showings are June 29, July 27, Aug. 31, Sept. 28, and Oct. 26, with the doors opening at 6 pm and the movie starting at 7 pm. Admission is free; dinner and drinks are available for purchase.
