For some, it was an emotional homecoming to a venue that hosted some of the most memorable moments from Duluth's music and arts scene from the '90s to the mid-2000s. For others, it was a first chance to experience music in one of Duluth's last remaining historic  theaters.

Drive-in movies didn't lose their popularity; land just got too expensive.

NorShor Theatre

If a building could sigh, the new NorShor Theatre in downtown Duluth has been waiting to exhale for decades.

Finally ready to make it's debut - again (Temple Opera House 1869, Orpheum Theatre 1910, NorShor Theatre 1940 and a number of others between 1974 and 2010) -  the NorShor has been lovingly restored and upgraded over millions of dollars and countless hours since June of 2016.

This morning, we talk to the man who probably knows the theatre best.
