What’s at the BIC Center?
Ray & Ann Stanhope Visitor Center
The Ray & Ann Stanhope Visitor Center is a great place to get information, grab a snack, connect to Wi-Fi and kick off your island adventure. It’s also home to the island’s community radio station…our very own WVBI-The Voice of Beaver Island.
Robert Gillespie Memorial Theater
The Robert Gillespie Memorial Theater is the premier performance space on the island hosting music of all genres, dance, theater productions, movies, seminars and community meetings.
Carol’s Hang Out upstairs offers an informal gathering place for meetings, reading, pool, foosball, board games, video games, TV, using our community PCs and printer, and … just hanging out.
Coming to the Robert Gillespie Memorial Theater
Music, Plays & More
The summer of 2017 was truly one to celebrate at the BIC Center--with plays, music from many genres (Classical, Jazz, Celtic, Folk and Country) informative presentations, the Summer Solstice Party, the 2017 Gala, Yoga, tech presentations, rainy day games, trail head information and more. We're planning a similar flurry of events for the summer of 2018.
BIC Center Big Screen
Summer 2017 was big for movies on the big screen at the BIC Center. We presented two movies every Saturday all year and started movie Tuesdays during the summer. Watch them sparkle by to the right. 2018 will be another great year for movies in the Robert Gillespie Memorial Theater.
Plays, Robots & Ice
PABI's spring events included two productions in the Ray & Ann Stanhope Theater, a robot film festival and the classic Ice Classic.
