VALPARAISO | An IMAX movie about the historic roads in Porter County and the rest of Indiana — and the stories told along those roads —will be shown one time only in Porter County.
The movie, "The Why in the Road," will be shown at 2 p.m. Sunday at Memorial Opera House, 104 Indiana Ave., Valparaiso. The doors open at 1:30, and popcorn and drinks will be available.
Tickets are $9 and can be purchased by calling the Opera House box office at (219) 548-9137. Proceeds from the ticket sales will support nonprofit organizations.
The crew that produced the movie focused its time in Porter County on scenic U.S. 12 and Lakefront Drive in the Duneland area and Lincolnway in Valparaiso — which is part of the historic Lincoln Highway.
While in Porter County, the film crew interviewed Valparaiso Mayor Jon Costas, Lincoln Highway expert Todd Zeiger and Ari Killian, who turned the historic Furness Mansion into DunesWalk Inn hotel, among others.
Indiana Dunes Tourism hosted the film crew.
Lorelei Weimer, Indiana Dunes Tourism executive director, said the movie is one more way to highlight Indiana dunes to potential visitors.
