"Newport VT: The Last Frontier" Thursday March 21.
“Newport VT: The Last Frontier” by amateur film-maker Real Lanoue is both a movie for history-buffs and a movie for those concerned with Newport's future. Mr. Lanoue, a life-long Newport area resident, spent 3 years filming the destruction and rebuilding of the Main Street block where the state office building now stands. He frames this urban renewal project with an historical account of the rise, and demise, of Newport as a railroad town. Mr. Lanoue's sparse narration and subtle editorializing are pure Northeast Kingdom. Join us for the movie and discussion on Thursday March 21 at 6 PM in the State Conference Room, 2nd floor, Hebard Building, 100 Main St., Newport. Presented by NEK 99%. FREE.
