Micon Cinemas plays a film produced by a native of Chippewa Falls
CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) – A western Wisconsin woman-produced film made its Midwest debut today at Micon Cinemas in Chippewa Falls.
Laura Reich currently lives in Los Angeles but is originally from Chippewa Falls.
Reich produced the movie “All Sports” which is a comedy with a bit of a love story.
This is an enchanted office that has ranking contests in the basement.
The film made its festival debut in 2021 at the Seattle International Film Festival where it was the festival’s most-watched film.
Reich says she always wanted to be able to bring her work back to her hometown.
“I’m a Wisconsinite,” Reich said. I love hanging out with a ton of people from Wisconsin to LA. So for me, it’s kind of always in my head. Like, I, you know, this is my house and you always want to bring things home and, you know, that’s a big part, I think, of the process for a lot of people and artists and, you know, you kind of forget where you grew up and this community means a lot to me”
Reich says Sunday was the only day “All Sorts” played at Micon. She says the film will hit theaters nationwide ahead of the film’s release on streaming platforms and DVD later this year.
