Lake Hopatcong on the Big Screen - November 8, 2014

It’s Lake Hopatcong on the Big Screen!
Saturday, November 8, 2014

On Saturday evening, November 8th, see Lake Hopatcong come alive on the big screen!

During its heyday as a major northeast resort, many newsreel crews visited Lake Hopatcong, capturing events from those years on film. Retrieved by the Lake Hopatcong Historical Museum from film vaults around the globe, this newsreel footage of Lake Hopatcong will be shown as it originally appeared at movie theatres from the 1910s to the 1940s. See celebrities, beauty pageants, winter carnivals, boat races, and more filmed at New Jersey’s largest lake.

Netcong’s historic Palace Theatre provides a perfect venue to view these fascinating newsreels of Lake Hopatcong, many of which were probably originally seen at this very venue.

The doors will open at 7:00 pm for a dessert table featuring the finest in Italian pastries from Veniero’s of Manhattan. The program will commence at 8:00 pm. The cost of the evening is $20.00 per person and reservations are required. For more information and to make reservations, e-mail the Lake Hopatcong Historical Museum at or call 973-398-2616.
