Our first concert of 2018 (which was to be the Cummings String Quartet with students from the BICS Strings Program) has been done in by slippery roads on the mainland. But the student concert will go ahead at noon. Join us at Beaver Island Community School in the high school commons for some hot strings music on a cold winter day. Hopefully, the Cummings String Quartet can be rescheduled for a less slippery day.
There are still movies on Saturday. Leap! is the afternoon matinee at 3:00 p.m. It’s the story of a young lady who lives her dream of becoming a ballerina. The evening show is The Foreigner at 7:00. Jackie Chan stars.

The Robert Gillespie Memorial Theater is the premier performance space on the island hosting music of all genres, dance, theater productions, seminars and community meetings.
The 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.
BIC Center Big Screen
2017 was a big year 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. 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.
