Put this on your schedule and come out for an evening of levity and entertainment. By August 20 we will all need it!

North Charleston, SC- “Damaged Care,” a musical comedy film about the state of health care in the United States and “Charleston Healthcare Stories,” a new documentary short by Mt. Pleasant resident Edward Faircloth, will be presented at 7:30 p.m. for a Progressive Dinner and a Movie Evening at the Olde North Charleston Picture House (1080 E Montague Ave.) on Thursday, August 20.

Participants may begin the evening with dinner across the street at Evo’s Pizza (1075 E Montague Ave), starting at 6 pm .

Tickets for the movie will be available at the dinner or at the theater box office, which opens at 7 pm. There is a suggested donation of $2 for members of the Greater Park Circle Film Society and $5 for non-members.

Faircloth will introduce the final edit of his short documentary, shot at health care reform meetings in the Charleston area in June, and then talk briefly about the challenge of documenting a sensitive political and personal issue with his subjects following its showing.
