The long-awaited Pennsylvania premier of the movie "Greencastle" will take place on Saturday, Feb. 9. The film, produced by Greencastle native Koran Dunbar, will be shown at 7 p.m. at Greencastle-Antrim High School as a fundraiser for G-A MAAX (Greencastle-Antrim Maximizing Arts and Athletic X-cellence).

"We wanted to make this affordable for everybody," said committee chair Vern McCauley.

The $5 tickets will be available at the door.

"Our goal is to fill the auditorium," he continued.

He added that through the graciousness of Dunbar, all of the proceeds would go to the organization formed to pay for renovations to Kaley Field. G-A MAAX was established in 2011. The capital campaign committee goal is to repay the school district's $2.5 million bond, avoiding the use of taxpayer money for the project.

"Greencastle", the movie, has won several awards, including Best Feature at the Indie Gathering Film Festival in Ohio, Best Actor (Dunbar) at the World Music and Independent Film Festival in Washington DC, and Best Sound at Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema in California.
