FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Pop Up Exhibit Room 108: The Clearing Opens Saturday at the Neville Museum!
GREEN BAY, WI June 7, 2023 – Room 108: The Clearing is a locally filmed movie set in a dual timeline of 1899/1900 and 1999/2000. Filming was originally inspired by a Wisconsin urban legend set at the Vic Theatre in Green Bay (now the Orpheum Theatre) where a double murder and homicide occurred after opening night of a new Broadway play. When Freddy Moyano, director, co-writer and one of the actors of Room 108: The Clearing, read about the urban legend, it inspired him to create his own take on it for an independent movie.
The feature-length film will showcase some of the area’s history as told through a fictional story that uses time travel and supernatural elements to connect places in Green Bay that are 100 years apart. Over 200 actors, crew members, volunteers from NE Wisconsin to as far as Massachusetts have been involved in this production. Room 108: The Clearing contains elements of science fiction, thriller, and mystery movies and the film will premiere at 1 p.m. Aug. 27 during the MLC Awards at The Tarlton Theatre in Green Bay with cast and crew.
The objects displayed for this pop-up exhibition are on loan from Freddy Moyano and depict nine thematically important sections of the movie. Pop Up Exhibit Room 108: The Clearing will be on display June 10 – September 10, 2023.
