What are bees
really up to?

Charleston resident Sue Monk Kidd’s 2002 best-seller The Secret Life of Bees has been adapted for the big screen. The film will premiere in Charleston on Oct. 16 at 7 p.m. at the Terrace Theatre, co-presented by the Lowcountry Initiative for the Literary Arts. The showing will come a day in advance of the film’s national release date. “Of all the events surrounding the opening of the movie, I look forward most to the one in Charleston,” Kidd said in a press statement. Tickets are limited for both the viewing and the following reception at the Harbour Club, 35 Prioleau St. For more information, call the Terrace at (843) 762-9494, or go to

Comeback Coming

The Center for the Documentary at the College of Charleston will be screening Comeback on Oct. 22 at 5:30 p.m. The documentary follows the struggles of Jürgen “The Rock” Hartenstein, an aging former boxing champion trying to stage a comeback and revive his career. Without a manager, he is forced to train in his attic and the public parks of Germany with the help of his trainer, Markus Kone. The documentary chronicles the struggles from his dingy attic in Munich to a fight in Philadelphia. You might not get to rock out to “Eye of the Tiger,” but it should be a pretty good time. There will be an interview with Hartenstein after the screening. The movie is in Room 118 in the CofC’s Education Center. Admission is free. For more information, check out
