The Emerson is a thriving arts and community center located a block from historic downtown Bozeman. The building was originally an elementary school built in 1918, attended by thousands of Bozeman youth before its closure in 1991. With the building facing demolition in 1992, a grassroots coalition of community members dedicated to historic preservation and celebration of the arts formed a non-profit board, raised funds, and bought the building from the City of Bozeman.

Mickey and the Bear premieres at the Emerson Crawford Theater as part of the Montana Film Festival Roadshow Tour. Filmed in Anaconda, MT, Mickey is a coming-of age story of a strong-willed teenage girl, written and directed by Annabelle Attanasio, in her directorial debut. Headstrong teenager Mickey Peck (Camila Morrone) navigates a loving but volatile relationship with her veteran father (James Badge Dale). Faced with the day to day responsibility of keeping her household afloat while her father falls apart, Mickey secretly fantasizes of going to college on the west coast, and finally living life on her own terms. When Hank’s controlling, jealous behavior turns destructive, Mickey must decide between familial obligation and personal fulfillment as she puts everything on the line to claim her own independence.
Filmmakers writer/director Annabelle Attanasio, producer Lizzie Shapiro, and co-producer Jeri Rafter will be in attendance. A filmmakers reception follows the screening at Squire House. Tickets will be on sale in the Emerson Lobby starting at 6 PM day of show.
