You look the same Jane. I enjoyed being an extra in the movie and hanging out with Reeves and Plummer. Great memories!

Hi Jane would love to have met you today. I watched you and Christopher Reeves being filmed for your wonderful movie. I was born on and graduated high school on Mackinac Island in 1979. Still tear up every time I watch Somewhere In Time. Brings back beautiful memories of a wonderful Summer. Enjoy your visit and Welcome back.

As soon as 'Chris' is mentioned, I teared up. He is definitely with you. Everyone will feel it I'm sure.

Is it really you #somewhereintime #comebacktome

Wonderful !!!!

I love that place. I had been inside. I believe Chris is there in spirit, hence the beautiful flowers. Have fun!

This movie still makes me cry every time! ❤️😢

Aw, we feel likewise about Chris, Jane! **hugs**

One of my Favorite Movies ever ! It never played at the Movie Theaters because there was a strike going on the weekend of its release. But about 20 years ago my husband surprised me to a Special Somewhere In Time weekend in Chicago and we all were able to meet some cast members and Watch the Movie on the Big Screen . I will never forget that wonderful day.

Beautiful! I spent a fairytale weekend @ the Grand Hotel & Mackinac Island several years ago. <3 Would love to visit during an SIT weekend. To Jane & everyone there, have an incredible time! 🙂

As lovely today as she was back in 1979 when she filmed it!

Aww!! Very nice video!! I am praying to visit Mackinac Island before my time is gone!! 🌹

My absolute favorite movie!!!!!! Chris is there in spirit!

One of my favorite movies of all time.

That was ONE BEAUTIFUL MOVIE. miss Seymour. Sad, and then beautiful ending....

Christopher will be with you xx

Me too !

I was just thinking the same of Mr Reeve glad you are there enjoy the beauty wonderful movie Somewhere in time😇

Had a great time, you look wonderful!

SOMEWHERE IN TIME is legendary!!! R.I.P. Christopher Reeves!!! Christopher Plummer is badass in this movie but Jane Seymour is a goddess from another time in this movie!!! Solitaire(Live And Let Die) was sexy but Elise was stunning!!!

I remember being on Mackinaw Usland when " Somewhere in Time" was filming. My girls & I delivered a " Superman cookie" to Christopher Reeves! Crazy idea hey? We did get a handwritten thank you note from Chris!👍🏽💥

My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at The Grand Hotel this past summer. We have been wanting to stay there ever since we first watched Somewhere In Time. It was a dream come true!

I wish I could of met you Jane!♡♡ Somewhere in time is my most fav movie ever!!

This is great! Enjoy and Happy SWIT Anniversary!!!

So lovely meeting you 💗✨😍
