Wed
Hydroplane Double Feature (4pm and 7pm) @ Hayden Discount Cinema
Jun 5 all-day

Limited Tickets. Buy in advance! at the Museum of North Idaho or Hayden Cinema The special Hydro History Day fundraiser will feature the Hollywood feature “MADISON” and a special documentary short film “THE ROARING GIANTS.” The showings of the two films will take place at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. and will be preceded by an introduction of each film by members of the Hydromaniacs.

The 2005 feature film “MADISON” was directed by William Bindley and tells the story of a hydroplane driver Jim McCormick’s personal struggle to win the 1971 Gold Cup for unlimited hydroplanes with the community owned Miss Madison.

For the hydroplane fan, “MADISON” is notable because it contains authentic race footage from the 1971 Madison, Indiana race as well as action scenes of restored vintage hydroplanes currently in the collection of the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum of Kent, Washington. “MADISON” is thought to be the only feature film ever made that is centered on professional boat racing.

The showing of “THE ROARING GIANTS” will be of particular interest to the residents of Coeur d’Alene, as it was filmed before and during the 1962 Diamond Cup unlimited hydroplane race on Lake Coeur d’Alene. The film short was independently produced and then stored away without explanation, never been shown to the public. Included in the footage are scenes of the big unlimited boats testing and racing on the lake as well as special concert footage from a performance by popular singer Jimmy Rodgers at North Idaho (Junior) College the weekend of the race.

The Museum of North Idaho will have copies of “THE ROARING GIANTS” for sale at the event, as well as a selection of the books including “Hydromania: A History of the Diamond Cup” written by local author Stephen Shepperd.

The newly reconstituted Coeur d’Alene Hydromaniacs hope to revive the fun-loving group that supported the Diamond Cup hydroplane races in the 1950s and 1960s. The organization also was involved in the Coeur d’Alene community, supporting local charities and civic events, activities that the new group hopes to renew as well.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the Museum of North Idaho, Hayden Discount Cinemas, Nickel’s Worth publishing office, Angel Gallery at 5th and Sherman, and Comfort Inn and Suites on Appleway.
