Based on the Larry Millett book of the same name, the Lost Twin Cities programs explore the vibrant history of vanished places and cultures in the metropolitan area. Narrated by Don Shelby, this hour-long special will revive fond memories from bygone eras and introduce viewers to surprising past chapters of the place we call home.
Lost Twin Cities III revisits treasured Twin Cities places that no longer exist: The Minneapolis and St. Paul Auditoriums, Charlie's Cafe Exceptionale, the Cooper Theatre, the Aqua Follies and more.
