Let's Dive-In to Lake Minocqua for an evening showing of Creature From The Black Lagoon. 

Have you ever been to a drive-in movie?! Well, we’ve got something new for you! How about a DIVE-In movie! A 23’ movie screen will be placed on the banks of Lake Minocqua at Torpy Park facing the lake. All float participants will watch the classic black and white thriller floating on commemorative take-home innertubes lit up with neon glowsticks in the warm August waters. Only 400 floats are available so sign up to grab your spot on the lake! If you would rather arrive by boat, you will get a commemorative boat flag and a special station to listen to the movie - just like an old drive-in movie.  Let's Dive-In!  

**8/6 Announcement: Due to cooler nights for the week of the event we are now offering dryland viewing opportunities. Floating is still an option and we will be providing heated tent areas and bonfires for warming if you have been in the water. Please bring a variety of clothing based on the weather. We will update this announcement closer to the event with accurate weather estimates.

About The Movie: 

black lagoon poster

Remnants of a mysterious animal have come to light in a remote jungle, and a group of scientists intends to determine if the find is an anomaly or evidence of an undiscovered beast. To accomplish their goal, the scientists (Antonio Moreno, Richard Carlson, Richard Denning, Whit Bissell) must brave the most perilous pieces of land South America has to offer. But the terrain is nothing compared to the danger posed by an otherworldly being that endangers their work and their lives.
