10/24/2018- An award-winning independent film makes its debut locally next week. Aquarians showcases rural Wisconsin and Upper Michigan in a comedic brotherhood drama created by filmmaker Michael McGuire, a native of Marinette. In-line with its small-town setting, McGuire decided to flip the typical release pattern for independent films and, rather than opening in big cities, the team behind Aquarians is partnering with independent and family-owned theaters in small towns across the region to bring the film to the audiences they believe will most relate to and appreciate the story, characters, and setting. Aquarians will be released in select theaters across Wisconsin and the UP on Friday, November 2, including the Mariner Theatre in Marinette and the Tivoli Theater in Stephenson, Michigan.
