On Friday, April 17, 2009, the CORE will be hosting the first day of the Wisconsin Wildwood Film Festival. This festival promotes local Wisconsin movie making talent. Tickets are $10 general admission for each session, and can be purchased at the door.
The CORE is the new daughter congregation of St. Peter Evangelical Lutheran Church in Appleton, WI.
The CORE occupies the former Big Picture theater, and has been working hard to utilize its large IMAX size screen. Recently, the CORE hosted a “March Madness” basketball party featuring free pizza and high definition television.
Here are some descriptions and previews of coming attractions: (Some previews contain coarse language and imagery. Please use discretion). “The Hungry Bull” is described as an “offbeat, whiskey-soaked comedy that chronicles the misadventures of a lovable pair of misfits searching in vain for love and the perfect fish fry.”
“Happy Boy” is a comedy about a guy with issues at a gas station:

The CORE’s official launch as a “worship outreach” ministry will be on April 19th, the Sunday after Easter. (There will be no Easter services at the CORE). In preparation for their official launch, the CORE has been working to erect outdoor signs, constructing a “performance platform,” and getting a band together. (The CORE April 2009 Update).
