Here's the deal with the Comet - it is a super charming, historic and perfectly quirky movie theater that we never miss a chance to go to when we're at Lake Vermillion. Only one show a night. DON'T BE FOOLED IF IT LOOKS CLOSED the sign on the front is only for the gift shop, the movies enter on the side. All seats are fine, popcorn is made fresh, it's a great setup. You should go.

Quirky little shop as you enter the lobby. Fun shopping here. They still use this theater for movies on certain dates.

The Comet Theater is a hidden north woods treasure. I have been going there for years. Carol's fashion, accessories, home/cabin decor, gift selections are fantastic. I'm so thankful the theater has been preserved. It's fun to be able to see a movie there. I stopped in for coffee many years ago and keep going back every weekend I'm up that way. Don't miss this place if you are in the area!
