PI Library in Full Swing with RC Theater

The Rogers City Theater is fully operating under the ownership and management of the Presque Isle District Library.
It is only the second library in the state to own a local movie theater. The other is in Harbor Beach.
“It’s been a long transition, but I feel we have been working together to have things run as smoothly as they can”, said Library Director, Amber Clement. “I am just completing a multitude of licensing contracts on behalf of the library with major motion picture companies and it is quite a process.”
The Rogers City Theater is the only movie theater and professional stage performance venue in Presque Isle County.
One of the opportunities for the district library is to screen DVDs of classic films and other films during film festivals and themed events which fall under a special licensing agreement. These films are shown to the general public free of charge.
