It's that time of year — Charleston Music Hall screens four holiday films this December

Ho, ho, holy moly it's almost December

Posted by Jack Kramer on Wed, Oct 17, 2018 at 12:17 PM

The Charleston Music Hall is putting the lights on the tree early; yesterday they announced this year's Holiday Film Series. Come celebrate the holidays with a lineup of "classic" Christmas movies that will bring holiday cheer. Begin each night with caroling and then watch your favorite movies on a full-sized movie screen. You can purchase tickets online.

The series kicks off Mon. Dec. 10 with a screening of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation; Chevy Chase and his family live on.

On Tues. Dec. 11 check out the all-time great It’s a Wonderful Life. Every person in attendance will be given a jingle bell and instructions on how to interact with the film.

Make it a three-fer: On Wed. Dec. 12 CMH screens Die Hard. Whether or not this is actually a Christmas movie (*cough*it is *cough*) is up for debate — but what isn’t is how great it is.

Finally, on Mon. Dec. 17, ELF hits the big screen — and those dressed up as an elf have the opportunity to win a prize.

The Terrace screens 'The Birds' Tues. Oct. 9

Halloween draws near, y'all

Posted by Kevin Young on Mon, Oct 8, 2018 at 2:53 PM

"Oh, what up birds?" - PROVIDED
  • Provided
  • "Oh, what up birds?"
This Tues. Oct. 9 the Terrace Theater will present a screening of a film that made such an impact that a scene from it is part of a mural outside the James Island theater. That scene? A young socialite, Melanie Daniels (portrayed by a newcomer named Tippi Hedren),watches an aviary apocalypse while trapped inside a phone booth (remember those?). The film? None other than Alfred Hitchcock’s nutty 1963 classic, The Birds.

Along with Sierra Nevada, Wild Birds Unlimited — a retail store that specializes in bird seed and bird feeding supplies — will be hosting the event. One of the store’s staff members, Emily Davis, a crow enthusiast, will be on hand to share lots of information on her favorite feathered friend.

Whether a lover of the boids or just fan of an animals-gone-amuck classic, fly on down to the Terrace Theater to see a film that was considered “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” by the United States Library of Congress, and selected for preservation by the National Film Registry.

Tickets for the one-night only event are $12.50.

Now, nine months later, the citizens of Haddonfield (a.k.a. Charleston) can see the results of all that hard work when Rough House Pictures will be hosting a special screening of Halloween at the Regal Palmetto Grande Stadium 16 at 7:30 p.m. on Thurs. Oct. 11. The $12 ticket price will benefit the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children's Hospital.

HBO picks up Danny McBride's 'Righteous Gemstones,' after pilot shot in Charleston over summer

Another Rough House joint

Posted by Sam Spence on Tue, Oct 2, 2018 at 2:21 PM

Television industry watchers are reporting today that HBO has ordered production of a new series from Danny McBride and co., picking up the Righteous Gemstones after shooting a pilot in Charleston over the summer.

Righteous Gemstones follows a family of southern televangelists, starring John Goodman as patriarch Eli Gemstone. McBride stands in as son Jesse and Workaholics's Adam Devine as son Kelvin, and Edi Patterson as daughter Judy Gemstone. The series is the latest local project from Rough House Pictures, McBride's production shop with collaborators Jodi Hill and David Gordon Green. The three have previously worked together on Halloween and Vice Principals, both of which were shot in Charleston where Rough House keeps an office. Halloween hits theaters on Oct. 19.

Goodman is also starring in The Conners, the Roseanne spinoff premiering later this month on ABC. Production on Gemstones will reportedly start once The Conners has wrapped.

HBO and McBride teased a first look at the show's title characters:
