3rd week for Hurt Locker, 2nd for Food Inc., NEW MOVIES, plus a fest @ the Peace Center! Whew!

August 12, 2009

The good news keeps rolling in as the weeks progress. The Hurt Locker‘s crazy success has secured it a third consecutive week @ Cherrydale in Greenville, and the word of mouth on indie doc Food Inc. has earned it another week on the roster as well.  Both these films are gripping in their own right, so if you haven’t ventured out to see them yet, now’s the time!

This good news is amplified by the fact that there is yet another independent feature headed our way, set to start this Friday, 8/14.  That makes a record THREE screens @ Cherrydale delegated to salving your summer blockbuster burnout!

Our incoming feature this week is The Stoning of Soraya M., a grizzly depiction of moral fundamentalism run amok in modern day Iran.  This polarizing, American made film features Jim Caviezel, and Oscar nom Shohreh Aghdashloo .

View the trailer here:

We here at the UFS want to thank EVERYONE who has come out to see these films so far, your numbers are really making a swift and decisive difference in the upstate’s indie film culture.  THANK YOU, and keep coming out!

In further news, the Peace Center will be featuring a series of up and coming southern filmmakers over the next several months, and we thought it would be more than prudent to suggest you attend any or all of the following screenings:
