SOMEWHERE IN TIME WEEKEND
The classic romance movie “Somewhere in Time” starring Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeve was filmed on Mackinac Island and in Chicago, IL. Many Mackinac islanders made their starring appearance as extras in this movie amongst the fabulous timeless setting. The “Somewhere in Time” fanclub, or SIT as they prefer to be known, has turned a fondness for this film into an enjoyable weekend of nostalgia and romance with the annual “Somewhere in Time” weekend hosted on Mackinac Island.
This popular weekend is hosted by the Grand Hotel each Fall. Most of the people attending this event choose to dress in vintage clothing which only adds to the nostalgic atmosphere during their stay. Events typically include a celebrity Q and A panel, a “Somewhere in Time” trivia contest, a costume parade, tours of several movie locations, formal cocktail parties, dinners, and much, much more. In 1994, Christopher Reeve himself attended and in 2015, Jane Seymour was our special guest star.
Don’t miss your opportunity to travel back in time! This mid-October event always attracts many tourists.
Here’s a little insider’s hint for you: If you are biking around the Island, be on the lookout for the “IS IT YOU?” plaque commemorating the site where that scene was filmed. It is a lakeside location with a view of the Mackinac Bridge.
So, come be part of this nostalgic adventure and experience the romance of “Somewhere in Time” firsthand by attending this special weekend event!
