[image-1] After a successful film festival last week, the Terrace Theater has decided to extend screenings of two of the fest’s flicks, Sophie and the Rising Sun and I Am Not Your Negro.

Sophie and the Rising Sun was filmed in McClellanville and tells the story of two interracial lovers in WWII America. I Am Not Your Negro is the vision of director Raoul Peck, who imagines what James Baldwin’s unfinished book, a narration about race in America, would be like.

Check out all dates and times online; the Terrace will continue to show the films as long as interest remains. Adult tickets are $11 and student, senior citizen, and military tickets are $8.

In addition to the extended screenings, the Terrace has some more good news: Beginning this Fri. March 24 the theater sets up a permanent donation box for Lowcountry Orphan Relief in its lobby. People can donate gently used items such as clothes, coats, shoes, pajamas, and stuffed animals, along with new items like toiletries, underwear, school supplies, diapers, etc.

In addition to this box, the Terrace will donate $1 of every ticket sale from Beauty and the Beast to the Lowcountry Orphan Relief fund. Learn more about LOR on their website.
