This month’s topic is “The NorShor: Duluth’s Marquee Movie House.” Duluth historian and Zenith City Press publisher Tony Dierckins will present the history of the 1941 Art Deco movie house—about to undergo a $30 million restoration—along with the stories of the two theaters that preceded it at the same location: the 1910 Orpheum vaudeville house and the 1889 Temple Opera House.
