What is better than gathering the family around for movie night? Watching old movies about one of the coolest areas in the country – Gatlinburg, TN! In its third year, the Vintage View Film Festival will be held by the Gatlinburg Garden Club and Pi Beta Phi on August 27. A compilation of old home movies filmed by actual Gatlinburg residents and visitors over the years is an unforgettable experience that will leave you nostalgic for the good old days. Fun for adults and kids alike, the film festival is quickly becoming a local annual favorite.
If you are ready to indulge in some good ole’ fashioned movie viewing and your don’t have a theater room in your cabin in Gatlinburg, head on down to the W.L. Mills Auditorium at 5 p.m. You can reserve your tickets ahead of time or purchase at the door for just ten dollars. You will start the evening off right with a wine and cheese social hour, followed by a meet-and-greet with local authors. Then everyone will be seated for the showing at 7 p.m. of the premiere feature composed by Kevin Tierney.
Proceeds from this year’s event will go towards restoring the Lucinda Oakley Ogle Log Cabin, one of the first cabins in Gatlinburg. At the ceremony will be revered guests, including centenarians who will be on hand to discuss the changes they have witnessed over the past 100 years. Impressed by the film? You can bring your own copy home to watch time and again to remember your vacation in Gatlinburg.
