We may be biased, but White Christmas is the best Christmas movie, hands down. Did we grow up watching the movie every December? Of course. Have we planned elaborate "Sisters" dance routines with our twin sister? Obviously. Is Bing Crosby's the only holiday album we'll listen to? Yep. You get the idea — this 1954 classic film is a holiday tradition for us (and a lot of other people).

The Terrace shares in our love of White Christmas, screening the flick four times in two days next Tues. Dec. 5 and Wed. Dec. 6, with both matinee and evening screenings. Join Bob Wallace and Phil Davis as they team up with Betty and Judy Haynes to save a failing Vermont inn.

(P.S. we've heard Vermont is beautiful this time of year).

You can rent T-Rav's Brookland Plantation on Airbnb

It's only $832 a night

Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Wed, Nov 29, 2017 at 11:44 AM


Love Southern Charm? Want to pretend that you live the lifestyle of a reality star? Look no further than Airbnb, which now offers Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel's Brookland Plantation on Edisto as, err, a cozy place to stay in the Lowcountry.

According to Inquisitr, when you rent Brookland (also the name of his polo team) you have access to three bedrooms, three full baths, two kitchens, and help from Ravenel's former nanny, Deidre Blair Politelli, who will babysit your kids. Renting the plantation will set you back $800+ a night, but hey, you get the whole place to yourself.

Let's set the scene for you:
As you drive down the winding dirt road surrounded by enchanting moss-draped oak trees, you will feel as though you are driving back into the Antebellum Era. As you pass the manicured polo field, in the distance lies Brookland Plantation. This plantation was built in the 18th century, and is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
Charming, right? Just remove yourself from the fact that Ravenel actually inhabited this place — and that it's, you know, a plantation — and you'll be livin' the Lowcountry dream.

Cinebarre presents $5 holiday films through December

Sounds like a great gift to us

Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Mon, Nov 27, 2017 at 10:49 AM

  • Provided/Regal Cinemas
It's the Monday after Thanksgiving and the only thing we can think about is Christmas. That's right, y'all, the holidays are full steam ahead. And Cinebarre is fully embracing that spirit with special screenings each Saturday throughout December. Starting this Sat. Dec. 2, through Sat. Dec. 23, you can head to Cinebarre at noon for a $5 movie — from A Christmas Story to Gremlins. Oh and if you're a Regal Crown Member you can get a medium popcorn and soft drink combo for $5, too.

A Christmas Story, playing at noon on Sat. Dec. 2, is the classic tale of Ralphie Parker and his Christmas dream of a Red Ryder air rifle. If you prefer this story on the stage, look for the musical version at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center starting Dec. 22, and at Flowertown Players starting this Fri. Dec. 1.

On Sat. Dec. 9 head to Cinebarre for National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation featuring Chevy Chase as Clark Griswold who just wants a perfect Christmas (needless to say things go awry).

Elf hits the Cinebarre screen on Sat. Dec. 16, with our favorite goofball/doofus Will Ferrell in the titular role as Buddy the Elf, on the hunt for his real father in the Big Apple.

Gremlins rounds out the festive flicks at Cinebarre on Sat. Dec. 23. with the tale of the coolest Christmas gift of all time.

Two Trains Runnin' makes its South Carolina premiere at the Terrace tomorrow night

Followed by a Q&A

Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Mon, Nov 20, 2017 at 10:06 AM

Two Trains Runnin', a documentary about the search for two forgotten blues singers in Mississippi during the height of the American civil rights movement, makes its South Carolina premiere tomorrow night. Civil rights leader and Summerville resident David Dennis, who appears in the movie, will be on hand for a Q&A following the film, along with Charleston native and Two Trains Runnin' writer Benjamin Hedin. The screening takes place at the Terrace on Tues. Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $11 and can be purchased online.

Two Trains Runnin', directed by Sam Pollard; narrated by Common; and featuring the music of Gary Clark Jr., Buddy Guy, Valerie June, and Lucinda Williams is a feature-length documentary about 1964's Freedom Summer, when hundreds of college students traveled to Mississippi to join the civil rights movement. That same summer another group traveled to Mississippi, comprised of musicians, college students, and record collectors. Their goal? To find old blues singers, Son House and Skip James, and coax them out of retirement. 

The New York Times describes the documentary as, "The convergence of idealism, brutality, and artistic genius."
