Thunder Road

Co-hosted by Mtn Xpress - Encore screening

June 9h. 7:00pm

The Mtn Xpress and Fine Arts Theatre Present the 1958 classic Thunder Road which was filmed in and around Asheville.

Joining us will be special guest speaker Michael Gouge, lecturer of mass communication at UNC-Asheville, Mr. Gouge previously taught a first-year colloquium called “Film, the Automobile and American Culture” in which Thunder Road was required viewing.

Robert Mitchum stars as a Korean war hero who returns to his hometown in Tennessee and takes over his family's bootleg moonshine business where he has to battle both the mob and federal agents. Not only did Mitchum star in the film, he wrote the story and the film's theme song; Robert's son Jim plays his younger brother in the film. Thunder Road is widely considered the best movie about moonshine bootleggers, and its climatic car chase is one of the finest ever captured on film.

All Tickets are $8, and are available at the Fine Arts Boxoffice or Online Here- Online Tickets

America's First Forest

June 23

June 23rd. 7:00

Directed by Asheville Filmmaker Paul Bonesteel.

Join the Conservation Trust for North Carolina at the Fine Arts Theatre for a screening of America's First Forest!

See the first full-length, in-depth documentary film ever made about legendary forester and educator Carl Schenck and his environmental legacy! America’s First Forest: Carl Schenck and the Asheville Experiment explores how, at a critical time, an extraordinary group of men converged at the magnificent Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina, to address a critical question: Could the Scientific Revolution stop the Industrial Revolution from destroying America’s forests? By introducing scientific forest management to America and establishing the Biltmore Forest School—the nation’s first forestry school—German forester Carl Schenck helped launch the conservation movement. Now this amazing story is told through America’s First Forest, the new, landmark documentary film produced by the Forest History Society.

The Conservation Trust for North Carolina is celebrating our 25th Anniversary and hosting a screening of America's First Forest for the community. Join us!

Tickets are $20, (proceeds to benefit the Conservation Trust’s efforts to protect natural and scenic lands along the Blue Ridge Parkway) and are available at the Fine Arts Boxoffice or Online Here- Online Tickets
