Special Showing: Before The Flood

Sunday, April 23 at 5pm

FREE Admission

The Northern Michigan Chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby is pleased to announce a special screening of “Before the Flood” at The Garden Theater. 

From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens and Academy Award-winning actor, environmental activist and U.N. Messenger of Peace Leonardo DiCaprio, "Before the Flood" presents a riveting account of the dramatic changes now occurring around the world due to climate change, as well as the actions we as individuals and as a society can take to prevent the disruption of life on our planet.

This epic documentary, presented by National Geographic, features Leonardo DiCaprio on a journey as a United Nations Messenger of Peace, traveling to five continents and the Arctic to witness climate change firsthand.

DiCaprio goes on expeditions with scientists uncovering the reality of climate change and meets with political leaders fighting against inaction. He also discovers a calculated disinformation campaign orchestrated by powerful special interests working to confuse the public about the urgency of the growing climate crisis.

With unprecedented access to thought leaders around the world, DiCaprio searches for hope in a rising tide of catastrophic news.

Citizens Climate Lobby is one group building the political will to solve climate change.  Northern Michigan’s rapidly growing CCL chapter is one of hundreds worldwide, using citizen engagement and respectful relationships to push Congress toward action.

Admission to the film is free and CCL volunteers will be on hand to share information about the mission of the organization, current actions, and reasons for hope.  

Rated PG for thematic elements, some nude and suggestive art images, language and brief smoking.

Runtime: 1 Hour, 36 Minutes. View trailer and visit official movie site.


The following films are on our short list to screen and will be "blooming soon" in The Garden. While we cannot guarantee these movies will be shown, it is our intent to bring them to the big screen in downtown Frankfort.

Ever wonder why The Garden doesn't publish a film schedule greater than a week in advance or why it takes so long to show a popular movie? Well, you are not alone!

In the new digital age, the studios are printing fewer and fewer copies of their movies. Studios decide which venues get the best films and the multiplex theaters that show several movies every day are given preference over single-screen, art-house cinemas like us. Subsequently, we often have to wait a few extra weeks to bring you the best movies.

Thank you for waiting to see your favorite films at The Garden!
