Pear Park to show ‘Milltown Pride’
Pear Park Baptist Church will present the Bob Jones University feature-length film “Milltown Pride,” at 7 p.m. Friday at 3102 E Road.
“Milltown Pride” is an Unusual Films production (BJU’s award-winning film production unit) and tells the story of a young man who dreams of playing professional baseball, but in South Carolina in the 1920s, the only path to the pros was through the local textile mill.
A majority of the filming took place in the summer 2010 at multiple locations around upstate South Carolina, the Unusual Films sound stage at Bob Jones University, northeast Georgia and in the northeast.
Visit facebook.com/MilltownPride or milltownpride.com for information on the film, or call the church at 434-4113.
