Roughly 40,000 people in 85 cities viewed it in theaters last spring, and now the Roswell-based film “Camp” is being shown one last time to celebrate its release on DVD.
A “nicely performed” film, as reviewed by the L.A. Times, “Camp” is based on experiences of Royal Family Kids Camps’ campers and counselors.
“There’s a huge need for people to step up and love these abused and neglected children,” said Roswell’s own Jacob Roebuck, writer and director of the film, in a press release. “There is no other medium like a movie that can entertain and encourage people to become engaged.”
If you missed it the first time around, there will be a free showing 7 p.m. tonight at Galaxy 8, 4501 N. Main. Since there are no tickets, seating will be on a first come basis.
The film is available in Christian bookstores across the nation as well as online. Some of the actors involved include Asante Jones (“Dexter”), Grace Johnston (“The Devil’s Dozen), Matthew Jacob Wayne (“New Girl”) and Roswell local Josh Berry.
“I am glad to call Roswell home and have really enjoyed the support of the city and the film community here,” Roebuck said.
