Petersburg celebrates 10 years of movies, powered by students

Petersburg’s student-run movie theater celebrated its 10th anniversary recently. The Northern Nights Theater got its start with a $35,000 state grant in 1997 — and has employed more than 100 local high school students over the past decade. It has been the town’s only place to watch recent releases on the big screen, and has survived thanks to many hours of student and adult volunteer time.
