A Prairie Home Companion is coming to the big screen at Tinseltown 17 with IMAX and Eastview Mall 13.


A special event is coming to Tinseltown 17 with IMAX and Eastview Mall 13 theaters on February 4, 2010. That's when Garrison Keillor with guests including Jearlyn and Jevetta Steele and Heather Masse plus the cast of A Prairie Home Companion present a rare, Thursday-night version of the show — one that will be broadcast live via satellite to some 500 theaters coast to coast in the U.S. and Canada. 

It's the same show you've been hearing each week on Classical 91.5, AM 1370 and WRUR-FM 88.5, but this time you'll get to see what Dusty & Lefty and the "Real" Guy Noir looks like, along with everything else from the stage of the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul. This special two-hour presentation begins at 8 p.m. on February 4th, with an encore of the program running on Tuesday, February 9 at Tinseltown 17 with IMAX and Eastview Mall 13. Preceding the special presentation, the theater will show a 30-minute, specially produced "walk-in," featuring show trivia and other entertaining elements.

Tickets are on sale now for $22 (Live) and $18 (Encore).Call the theatre closest to you for details.

Classical91.5 will also be giving away pairs of tickets so be sure to tune in!
