We are still floored by the overwhelming amount of people that showed up for our free showing of Everglades of the North- The Story of the Grand Kankakee Marsh! Fountain Stone Theaters in Rensselaer, IN hosted the free showing on January 11th at 10:00 a.m. and it was a packed house! The theater was full with happy movie goers that were very excited to see the film on the big screen! The already powerful documentary about the Grand Kankakee Marsh was even more powerful on the big screen. Film Producer Jeff Manas was present as well and hosted a Question and Answer session after the film. Thank you again to Fountain Stone Theaters, Jeff Manas, and For Goodness Sake Productions for making this awesome event possible!
