Kiwanis Club of Tecumseh offers guests the chance to travel the world through their annual Travel and Adventure Cinema Series. This is their 37th season of offering an exciting travelogue film series to support the work of the Kiwanis Club of Tecumseh.
So ... you might be asking yourself what is a travelogue? Have you ever wanted to get a birds-eye view of a place or travel destination you heard about on the radio, TV or through a beautiful ad in a magazine? Travelogoues provide an opportunity to truly see a place from a seasoned traveler's eyes.
The audience gets a professional prepared presentation, usually a movie, which is personally narrated by the cinematographer who made the movie. You see large and small cities, the residents and of course, the personality of that destination. You will experience tours through the countryside and all the big and little stops your favorite travel agent would book for you to experience.
If you've already traveled to one of the destinations, you may want to confirm again the grand sights you were able to take in. You may even discover what you missed. An evening at a travelogue may prove for you or a guest that "we need to go again!"
Your attendance also assists Kiwanis Club of Tecumseh for their many projects serving youth and the community. You'll find the 2016-17 travelogues to be wholesome, educational, and adventurous for a truly enriching experience.
With just 4 of the 6 films remaining in this season, you'll want to be sure you purchase your tickets soon. Each film is just $5 each. See the list below of the four remaining films:
Tickets for each of these films can be purchased at Tecumseh Center for the Arts. You can purchase them Tuesday-Friday from noon until 5 pm by stopping by the Box Office or calling 517-423-6617. The Box Office is located at 400 North Maumee Street in Tecumseh, Michigan.
