The Renaissance Theatre will show the fourth film in its year-long Stephen King Film Festival, “Stand By Me,” on June 21 at 7:00 PM. The festival launched in January with a screening of “The Shawshank Redemption” during the theatre’s 90th Anniversary Celebration. The film festival is presented thanks to funding from Charles P. Hahn, Cleveland Financial with the guest speaker provided by the Mansfield/Richland County Public Library.
Prior to the screening, a brief lecture about the film will be given at 6:30 PM from the stage of the theatre by Carl Sederholm from Brigham Young University.
Mr. Sederholm was born and raised in Long Beach, California, where he graduated from Long Beach Polytechnic High School, a school known for famous alumni Snoop Dogg and Cameron Diaz. He later went on to receive his BA in English from UCLA and his Ph. D. in English (American Studies) from the University of Utah in 2002. In that same year, he began working in BYU’s department of Humanities, Classics, and Comparative Literature. “I’m not much of a football fan, so crosstown rivalries like the one between the U and the Y don’t make much impact on me. I am an avid reader and am always looking for new books to read. I especially enjoy horror novels and police procedurals. I am a big fan of hard rock and heavy metal. I attend rock shows in Salt Lake City frequently and can often be seen at shows with my camera, taking pictures of the performances.” Carl has been married for over 15 years to his wife, Cyndi, and has a teen-aged son named Nathanael.
The remaining films in the series include: Cujo, July 19; IT (New version), August 16; Carrie, October 18; The Mist, November 15; The Shining, December 13.
Tickets are $5 and can be purchased in advance at the Renaissance Box Office, at the door, via phone at (419) 522-2726 and online at MansfieldTickets.com/film.
