Did you know that two made for cinema movies were filmed in the Cloyne area in 1976 and 1981? The movies ‘Surfacing’ and ‘The Far Shore’ were filmed with US and Canadian actors in Bon Echo and Skootamatta Lake. Why did the directors choose our area? What was the budget of the films? How did the actual filming affect individual property owners?
Be sure to join us at the Cloyne Pioneer Museum Saturday, June 24th, 2023 for the seasonal Grand Opening! Festivites start at 11 am.
