Our June installment of our Breakfast with a Preservationist series takes us into the movie theaters of South Minneapolis, as historian Anne Drolet tells the stories of neighborhood theaters, how they shaped, and were shaped by the residents in the surrounding communities. 

Join us to learn about the theaters in their heyday and today, when many continue to play roles as communal space defined by the local culture. Coffee and breakfast treats provided … but bring your own popcorn!
