The Greater Park Circle Film Society will open the doors of the Olde Village Talking Picture House on Dec. 6. The North Charleston-area theater will focus on independent films, documentaries, and shorts not well-covered in mainstream commercial theatres. Founded by Nicholai Burton, Richard Campbell, Jim Sears, and Bob Williamson, the society offers membership to anyone with an interest in media arts. While funding is currently generated by member dues, ticket sales, and the sale of beer, wine, and food, the GPCFS is currently seeking additional finances through corporate sponsorship as well as grants at the local, state, and federal levels. —Myles Hutto
