'Lake Effects' Premier Screening Scheduled in October

Sarah Elizabeth Timmins
"Lake Effects," the Sarah Elizabeth Timmins movie filmed at Smith Mountain Lake last October, will hold a premier screening at Westlake Cinema in Hardy Oct. 7. The movie stars Scottie Thompson, Jane Seymour, Madeline Zima and others. 

There will be two showings on October 7 at 5 and 9 p.m. and reservations are required. Reservations for the community red carpet screening are a $20 donation. Additional showings may be added upon demand.  There will be a party at Mango’s Bar & Grill at 7pm, featuring the local bands that have music in the film, with proceeds benefiting a scholarship fund in the memory of Lake Effects writer Scott Winters.  

Due to high demand, there will also be screenings on Saturday October 8.  Each screening will include a Q  & A session with the director, producer & team following the film.  The Saturday show times are 4pm and 7 pm.  Reservations are a $15 donation.

Producers chose this date to coincide with the Smith Mountain Lake Charity Home Tour in an effort to further the company’s mission to help promote local economic development and tourism.  Life Out Loud Films hopes that visitors coming to the area for the premier will also support the home tour, and experience all that Smith Mountain Lake has to offer.

Reservations for the screenings are limited.  Reservations are cash only and will open to the public on today from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at The Westlake Cinema in Hardy. Reservations will also be available at the Roanoke Valley Convention and Visitor’s Bureau office in Roanoke on Wednesday, Sept. 14 from 8 5 p.m.. There will be a priority line for those who volunteered and worked on the film. 

Seating is limited.  All show times are subject to availability.
