The Golden Age of Moviegoing in Kalispell

Sunday, January 29, 2023 (2:00 PM - 4:30 PM) (MST)


Starting with Randy Mohn’s grandfather’s entry at Ellis Island when he was 2, and through his journey to Kalispell, where his father, Marius Anderson, and partners bought the property where they would build the Liberty in 1923, the Mohns’ will trace the proliferation of movie theaters and moviegoing in Flathead County’s largest city. The Anderson family owned theaters such as the Orpheum (later the Strand), the Roxy, Gateway Cinema, and two drive-ins: the Sundown and the Midway.
