Welcome to the Southeast Gateway Group (SEGG) Website
Chasing Ice - free movie on April 22nd at the Golden Rondelle Theater

Spend Earth Day watching breathtaking cinematography on the big screen at the Golden Rondelle Theater. The Southeast Gateway Group of the Sierra Club along with Racine Green Congregations is sponsoring a community screening of Chasing Ice at SC Johnson’s Golden Rondelle Theater, 1525 Howe St., Racine, on Earth Day, April 22nd. Admission to the movie is FREE but reservations are required so please call (262) 260-2154 to reserve your seat.

Initially skeptical of climate change, James Balog, a National Geographic photographer whose career explores the relationship between humans and nature, was assigned to document the receding glaciers of the far north. Soon after this first visit, Balog founded the Extreme Ice Survey, a project intended to record the melting glaciers of Iceland, Greenland and Alaska. Making what is normally invisible visible, the film is both stunningly beautiful and deeply disturbing. Chasing Ice has won over thirty awards from around the world, most notably a Sundance Film Festival award for excellence in cinematography.

A discussion following the film will focus on the impacts of climate change on Wisconsin and will offer possible actions to be taken at a local level. The event will serve as an opportunity to receive information about the John Muir Chapter’s partnership with H & H Electric which offers special rates on residential photovoltaic installations.

The film will start at 7:00 on April 22. Doors will open at 6:30.
