Envision Minnesota partnered with Twin Cities Public Television to co-produce a series of one-minute Legacy Letters videos featuring individuals who talk about what they treasure most in Minnesota. The videos began airing on the Minnesota Channel in 2009. A new set of Legacy Letters funded by a Minnesota Historical and Cultural Grant was created in spring 2011 and the spots began to air this past week.

MHS Press author Dave Kenney shares his passion for Minnesota’s old movie theaters in his Legacy Letter. For more on the fascinating cinematic history of the Twin Cities, check out his book, Twin Cities Picture Show: A Century of Moviegoing.
