Hunter’s Widow Weekend Join us for Hunter’s Widow Weekend - tons of sales, giveaways, and more! Be the first to get ahold of our new Holiday collection


The Tinderbox Movie in Dillon The Tinderbox stars Mike Nance, Mike Verdon, Brin Merkley, Danny Felix, Andree O’Shea, Rob Cox, Craig LeDouceur, Kevin George, John Emeigh, Alicia Knievel-Vincent, Tabatha Bettin and Amber Rose Mason as well as dozens of other local performers.

The story is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Tinderbox” published in 1835 about a soldier who returns from war in something of a trance, kills a mouthy witch for her tinderbox, and falls in love with a beautiful princess who is locked in a tower. Updated by co-directors Elizabeth Cox and the late David Butler, the comedy film is set entirely in Butte using the City’s scenic backgrounds and beautiful Uptown locations like the Hennessey Mansion and the Clark Chateau.

With an anticipated rating of PG-13, The Tinderbox contains Butte-based and sexual humor, mild crude language and depicts drug use that may not be appropriate for young children.

To avoid the same fate and escape in time, you’ll have to search his cabin for clues and find his hidden research notes! Participants will have 40 minutes to follow the trail of clues and unlock the door.

When you’ve successfully found the way out with research in hand, enjoy your newfound freedom and celebrate with a s’more or two. All ingredients and materials will be provided except for chairs, which escapees are encouraged to bring.

TICKETS ARE $5 PER SERSON, the event header is lying. To book your time slot, please call the park at (406) 287-3541. Each time may have up to 6 participants.
