Support the Local Filming of Mount Skylight at Escutcheon Brewing

March 13


Come out to Escutcheon Brewing on March 13, from 5-9pm to support the production of Mount Skylight, a short-film that is now being made into a feature film. With a grant from Magic Lantern Theater in Winchester, the filmmakers of Mount Skylight are dedicated to filming the movie entirely in Virginia, and portions are being filmed in the Winchester area.


Producer Ryan Cudahy describes the feature film as a “character-driven thriller” that follows a group of recovering addicts who, after returning from a hike in the Shenandoah Valley, discover that everyone in their town has disappeared. They have to figure out what happened, as well as how to survive.
