From Farm to Film: An Evening with the Filmmakers

LDR Creative LLC, in partnership with Thorndale Farm LLC, presents From Farm to Film, an evening with the filmmakers on historic Thorndale Farm. Come learn about the VA Film industry and see the VA premiere of the award winning short Free, by Director Ben Hartley. (vimeo.com/benhartley)

Inspired by true events and filmed entirely on location at Thorndale Farm, Free tells the story of how a young Frederick Douglass is secretly taught to read and write by his master’s wife. Using only the air as their blackboard, this random act of kindness provided an education that paved the way from slavery to freedom.

Meet the filmmakers and enjoy music, history, and local barbecue, beer and wine. Mark your calendars and check back here regularly for additional program details as they develop for this exciting event!

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

Mele-ki-liki-maka is Hawaii’s way to say Merry Christmas to you.

Bad luck seems to follow Clark Griswold and his family no matter where they go or what they do. The perpetual optimist, Clark (the young and great Chevy Chase) tries to make the holidays a special family event by chopping down the biggest tree in the forest, hanging a million Christmas lights, and dealing with his obnoxious visiting family members. He does this all while banking on his holiday bonus – but will it come?

Is NATIONAL LAMPOON’S CHRISTMAS VACATION perfect Christmas movie?

Yes.

Tickets to this screening benefit 92.5 WINC FM’s CHAIN OF CHECKS!
