Loggerheads’ to be screened

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Out at the Movies Winston-Salem will screen “Loggerheads” on March 11, 7 p.m., at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts ACE Theatre Complex, 1533 S. Main St.

“Loggerheads” takes place across North Carolina in Asheville, Kure Beach and New Bern. Three seemingly unrelated stories converge in this film. Elizabeth Austin (Tess Harper), wife of Rev. Robert Austin (Chris Sarandon), pines for the son who fled their religious household. Grace Bellamy (Bonnie Hunt), now in her 40s, wonders about the son she gave up for adoption. And, kindhearted Mark (Kip Pardue) falls in love with motel owner, George (Michael Kelly), while trying to come to the rescue of some loggerhead turtles.

Tickets are $7/general and $6/seniors and are available in the lobby beginning at 6:15 p.m. Cash, checks and credit/debit cards are accepted for payment.
