Back on Track Rebuilding The Waupaca Depot Film Premiere

6:30pm - 9:00pm
Gerold Opera House

136 E Main St, Weyauwega, WI

The premiere screening of “Back on Track: Rebuilding the Waupaca Train Depot” will take place at the Gerold Opera House on May 18th. The feature-film documentary depicts the history and salvaging of the Waupaca depot and its surprising impact on the community today.

Directed by Max Hauser, award-winning filmmaker of Iola and Appleton, in association with Emmy award-winning producer Ron Scott, the film focuses on Mike Kirk. Mike’s love of model trains inspired him to lead his family and friends in a decades long journey to restore an abandoned train depot back to its original glory as a beautiful historical site.

The role of trains in the history of America is romantic, nostalgic, and of course the lifeblood of the post industrialization world. Rural towns like Waupaca would not exist if it were not for the railroads that united the United States.

Doors open at 6:30pm, film starts at 7:30pm.
