Mark your calendars on Sunday, September 29th, at 2:00 PM for a movie premier at the Mauch Chunk Opera House in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania. The film, Jim Thorpe: The Old Mauch Chunk History Tour, a new documentary will be shown, appropriately, in the town’s Victorian theater, followed by a reception.
The film takes you on a walk among Victorian homes and into private historic gems such as the Asa Packer Mansion, the Molly Maguire courtroom, the Inn of Jim Thorpe, the Mauch Chunk Opera House, the Mauch Chunk Museum, and St. Mark’s Church. No other filmmaker has attempted to cover Jim Thorpe’s Historic District.
At the premier the 90 minute DVD will be available for sale. Jim Thorpe: The Old Mauch Chunk History Tour is already on sale at the Mauch Chunk 5 & 10, Sound Check Records, and the Mauch Chunk Museum. Price $15. For the website, see JimThorpeHistoryTour.com.
