Wall Street in Eagle River. The evening will begin with a 5 p.m. reception, and a screening of the film will follow at 6 p.m. The event is free to attend.
The event is co-sponsored by the Eagle River Area Chamber of Commerce, Discover Mediaworks, Conway Theaters and Vilas County Tourism & Publicity. Refreshments will be provided by Sprecher Brewing and Trig’s.
