Let’s celebrate the amazing filmmaking in Chisholm at the Made in Chisholm Film Screening! Join us Thursday, December 21st at the Minnesota Discovery Center for a cinematic screening experience featuring four local films produced right here in beautiful Chisholm!
Doors open at 5:30PM and the program begins at 6:15PM.
Our community has been busy with lights, cameras, and grip trucks over the past couple years and now we are bringing the Iron Range Premiere of Canusa Street to be screened at our theater for the community that helped make it! Additionally, we will be screening three short films showcasing the people, places, and stories that make Chisholm so special!

Our club has many National Champions and an Olympic Gold Medalist.

To most people, Chisholm, MN is barely a dot on the map. But this small town on the Mesabi Iron Range once provided the ore that built the tanks and planes of WWII and the skyscrapers of New York. Chisholm built America and the people prospered. But as time went on, the demand for Chisholm’s ore declined. Now, the community and industry that built this town are banding together to revitalize a forgotten piece of America. Can Chisholm make the leap from mining town to outdoor capital?
