For a number of years, filmmaker Julie Casper Roth, a native of Superior, Wisconsin, has been working on The Main, a documentary about The Main Club in her hometown and owner Bob Jansen. The bar, which opened at its original location in 1983, was destroyed in a tragic 1996 fire, but moved to its present home in 1997. A two-day preview/fundraiser for The Main takes place at the Zinema 2, 222 East Superior Street, Duluth, Minnesota. On April 17 (tickets $35), a silent auction, hors d’oeuvres, and cash bar get under way at 6 PM, followed by a screening at 8 PM. On April 18 (tickets $25), doors open at 11 AM for a silent auction, with a screening at 1 PM. Tickets may be purchased at The Main Club, 1217 Tower Avenue, Superior.
