The Petoskey area hosts a variety of events, including our favorite special events list to the left that we look forward to every year!
The Petoskey Film Theater will be showing the film "Get Low" on Wednesday and Friday, March 2 and 4, 7:30 pm, at the Petoskey District Library, Carnegie Building. Donations are appreciated. "Get Low" stars Robert Duvall, Bill Murray, and Sissy Spacek.
Comedies about death aren't exactly a novel proposition, but "Get Low", which draws from a real 1930s incident, leaves the gallows humor behind for a lighter touch. After losing hte love of his life 40 years before, Felix Bush (Robert Duvall) has lived like a hermit ever since. With death on the horizon and guilt weighing him down, the "crazy ol' nutter" decides to go out with a party. As he tells funeral director Frank Quinn (Bill Murray), "Time for me to get low." Frank and his assistant, Buddy, find the request bizarre -- since Felix plans to attend -- but they can't afford to turn him down. Quips Quinn, "One thing about Chicago, people know how to die. People are dying in bunches, but not around here." So, they fit Felix for a suit, post invitations up around Caleb County, and set up a land raffle to encourage everyone to show.
Before he leaves this mortal coil, Felix longs to hear the tall tales the town folk have been spreading about him. While preparing for the big day, he reconnects with Charlie, a preacher, and Mattie (Sissy Spacek), an old flame who returned to the county after her husband's death. Their encounters, which have a gentle sweetness, encourage Felix to share the truth he's kept bottled up inside for decades.
