Southern Charm season four is happening, according to Shep

Fourth times a ... charm

Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Thu, Sep 15, 2016 at 12:56 PM

Earlier today, OK like earlier this hour, we saw a Rutledge Cab Co. tweet that read, "Southern Charm here filming lunch." We popped over to the restaurant and found Shep Rose outside with some crew members, who promptly shooed us away. When asked if Southern Charm is having a fourth season, Shep said, "Yeah we are!"

No further details were available from tight-lipped crew members, but we'll take Shep's word for it. Stay tuned for more Southern Charm deets and in the meantime, read up on Dustin Waters' stunning coverage of the show, Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie.

Here we go again. 😜😜😜

'Blazing Saddles' returns to the Terrace Theater for one week in honor of Gene Wilder

For one week only, The Terrace Theater on James Island will show the Mel Brooks classic Blazing Saddles to pay respect to Gene Wilder, who died on Monday.

Wilder quit making movies in the decades before his death, eschewing Hollywood flash and the gimmicks that came with modern cinema. Yet, even without seeing him on the big screen since 1991, the characters Wilder inhabited in films that became classics stayed with us like we'd seen them yesterday. Wilder's acting was at once both outrageous and subtle, both nuanced and built to last. Indeed, Willy Wonka and Leo Bloom found their way back into theaters in 2005. Blazing Saddles' Jim (his friends call him Jim) is one of those indelible characters. No remakes though, please.

As a tribute to Wilder's legacy, the Terrace will have three showings tonight (4:15, 9:25, 11:35), and two screenings a day (4:15, 9:25) through Thursday, Sept. 8. Find more info on the Terrace's Facebook event.

HBO’s Vice Principals goes colonial at Charles Towne Landing

Ya turkey

Posted by David Hall on Mon, Aug 1, 2016 at 12:15 PM


This week we saw more of Charleston and the first instance of the city identified specifically on HBO's new Vice Principals. 

Vice Principal Gamby (Danny McBride) rode a school bus down I-26 in North Charleston all the way to Charles Towne Landing, site of the first English settlement in Carolina. At the historic sight, Gamby, teachers, and students shot muskets, danced on a boat by the marsh, and ate turkey legs. Not a bad day if you ask us. Sadly, in real life Charles Towne Landing only allows living historians to shoot muskets and well, turkey legs, really? The cast then completed their day at the North Charleston Embassy Suites.

On this episode, we also saw Gamby visit Pineville MotoCross park to watch his ex-wife’s husband race around the facility’s dirt tracks. Spoiler alert: He didn’t seem amused.

With Charles Towne Landing making a cameo this week, we saw a deeper dive into the city's scenery. Lets hope Vice Principals keeps it up.

This fall, CofC's Nuovo Cinema Italiano Film Festival welcomes Italian director and screenwriter Massimo Gaudioso to the Holy City in honor of the 10th annual film fest. Gaudioso is best known for his screenplays of Gomorrah (2008), Reality (2012) and Tale of Tales (2015), starring Salma Hayek. Gaudioso is one of many writers and directors who will participate in audience discussions at the festival, which runs Oct. 6-9.

Held at Sottile Theatre, Nuovo Cinema Italiano celebrates contemporary Italian cinema and culture. Festival-goers can watch screenings, participate in conversations with directors (like Gaudioso), and attend other special events. The festival will feature a variety of film genres, ranging from award-winning documentaries to comedies and dramas. This festival began 10 years ago as the brainchild of Professor of Italian Studies Giovanna De Luca who continues to expose the Lowcountry to Italian arts, language, and culture. 

Tickets will go on sale in September. Until then, stay up to date with the fest here.
