The Historic Midwest Theater announces the film “Five Feet Apart” will show this weekend May 3-5.
Movie Synopsis: Seventeen-year-old Stella spends most of her time in the hospital as a cystic fibrosis patient. Her life is full of routines, boundaries and self-control — all of which get put to the test when she meets Will, an impossibly charming teen who has the same illness. There’s an instant flirtation, though restrictions dictate that they must maintain a safe distance between them. As their connection intensifies, so does the temptation to throw the rules out the window and embrace that attraction.
Runtime: 2h 15min

Union Pacific’s historic steam locomotives – Big Boy No. 4014 and the Living Legend No. 844 – are touring the Union Pacific system throughout 2019 to commemorate the transcontinental railroad’s 150th anniversary.
Big Boy No. 4014 will leave Cheyenne with the Living Legend No. 844 May 4 following a 9:30 a.m. MT christening ceremony at the historic Cheyenne Depot and arrive in Ogden for the May 9 celebratory event. The event will be streamed live at 10:30 a.m. MT via the Union Pacific Facebook page.
The Big Boy and Living Legend will make several brief stops in communities on their way to Ogden.
The Big Boy’s return to the rails is the product of more than two years of meticulous restoration work by the Union Pacific Steam Team. No. 4014 is the world’s only operating Big Boy locomotive.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation and the Wyoming Highway Patrol urge motorists to be extra vigilant when traveling during the upcoming Union Pacific (UP) railroad events.
Motorists are not allowed to stop or park on the side of I-80 or along the overpasses or bridges. Violators, who decide to stop along the interstate, can be fined up to $235.00.
Spectators can visit https://www.up.com/heritage/steam/schedule/index.htm for more information on tour schedule and stops.
Due to the dynamic nature of these operations, running times and scheduled stops are subject to change.
Join the Union Pacific Steam Club to be notified of major schedule updates. Small schedule changes will be communicated immediately via the UP Steam Club Facebook Group and the @UP_Steam Twitter feed located at twitter.com/up_steam.
