Stanley Theater

Clip: Season 3 Episode 9 | 5m 3s

Cecilia Eslinger wasn’t even much of a movie buff when she bought a one-screen theater in small town Stanley. But the Milwaukee transplant made a new home in northern Wisconsin, meeting her husband and raising six kids in the movie business. Now the kids have taken over the business. No one gets paid. Everyone volunteers to keep the doors open and the popcorn popping for this small community.
