Singin’ in the Rain – Historic Temple Theater

When the transition is being made from silent films to ‘talkies’, everyone has trouble adapting. Don and Lina have been cast repeatedly as a romantic couple, but when their latest film is remade into a musical, only Don has the voice for the new singing part. After a lot of practice with a diction coach, Lina still sounds terrible, and Kathy, a bright young aspiring actress, is hired to record over her voice.

Wild West Days

1880’s Bustling Boom Town with many authentic buildings. Rodeo, vendors, concert, parade, hog wrasslin’ and many events throughout the weekend. Come join us for a fun weekend full of the old and new west! We are not only a family friendly event, but we are budget friendly. We are located at 925 Nelson Parkway Viroqua, WI 54665.

A Dog’s Way Home – Historic Temple Theater

Join the Historic Temple Theater for more films on the big screen. As a puppy, Bella finds her way into the arms of Lucas, a young man who gives her a good home. When Bella becomes separated from Lucas, she soon finds herself on an epic 400-mile journey to reunite with her beloved owner. Along the way, the lost but spirited dog touches the lives of an orphaned mountain lion, a down-on-his-luck veteran and some friendly strangers who happen to cross her path. A Dog’s Way Home is free admission, and presented in part by the Viroqua Parks Recreation.
