Conrad Chamber-Main Street (CCMS) is very excited to celebrate our 25th Anniversary of being a Main Street Community. In order to make our 25th year a memorable one, we decided to make a movie! CCMS enlisted My Town Pictures to help us create the movie, “Mystery at Wolf Creek." This is a fictional feature film (full-length) that is based in Conrad with actors that live right here in our great community. With 23 community members with speaking parts and around 75 extras used in and for the filming of the movie, the community has just been buzzing with excitement.
The movie introduces the audience to “Peter,” a murder mystery writer from Chicago, who comes to Conrad, along with his agent, “Laslo,” their wives and Peter’s daughter “Olivia.” The group visits Laslo’s family and tries to “get away” from the big city life they lead. During their visit, we find out that Peter’s career is not doing very well, in fact, it is in the dumps; so in an attempt to regain his fame, Peter makes up a story about a murder that happened in Conrad years ago. And at that point, Laslo and Peter begin to find themselves in a humorous and mysterious predicament with twists and turns around every corner. Watch as the their families and towns folk get drug into Peter and Laslo's story when questions are asked!
