Bay College Film Series Hosts Fundraiser


Do you miss going to the drive-in?  Do you dream of watching a movie under a moonlit night sky?

On Thursday, September 19th, Bay College’s Bay Film Series will be hosting an outdoor showing of the cult classic Moonrise Kingdom at the Northern Sun Winery in Bark River.  “Bring your favorite lawn chairs or blankets and any snacks you’d like,” says Film Series Coordinator Nanci Love.  “Popcorn and soda are part of the ticket price.  All proceeds will go to support the Bay College Food Pantry.”

Northern Sun Winery will be co-hosting the event. The ticket price includes two wine samples (for those 21 and older), and wine can be purchased during the show (ID required). Susie Anthony of Northern Sun is excited about the upcoming event. “Sitting out under the stars, sipping UP-grown wine and watching a good movie is the height of civilization,” she quips. Northern Sun is located at 983 10th Rd in Bark River, Michigan. 

The Bay Food Pantry operates in conjunction with Feeding America, a nonprofit network of food banks across the country.  Jill Martin, Director of TRIO and the Pantry says that students brought the issue to the college’s attention.  “Students can’t perform well academically when they’re hungry.”  The Pantry is sponsored by Aldi and private donations.

“The Film Series is proud to co-host this event,” says Love.  “We hope to see lots of people turning out to support the Food Pantry.”

Doors will open at the Northern Sun Winery at 8 PM. The movie will begin at 8:30 PM.

Tickets are $10.00 and $5.00 for students with ID and can be purchased both at the Bay College ticket window and the tasting room at Northern Sun as well as at the door the night of the show.
