Mayberry film premieres tonight in downtown Columbus

The YES Fest film festival officially kicks off tomorrow in downtown Columbus, but there is a special premiere of a film tonight produced in central Indiana.

Mayberry Man will be premiering at 7 p.m. tonight and will include a question and answer session with the film’s producer afterwards. The film is a story about a movie star who gets a ticket in a small town and is forced to attend Mayberry Fest, which celebrates the Andy Griffith TV show.

Diane Doup with Lincoln Central Neighborhood Family Center explains:

Those who attend the show tonight will be entered into a drawing for items including an autographed copy of the script and the DVD, T-shirts, baseball caps and an authentic prop from the movie.

Mayberry Man will have two more viewings during the YES Film Fest on Saturday and Sunday.

The film festival runs Friday through Sunday with 20 films, documentaries and shorts to be shown. Tickets for individual films are $7 or $35 for the whole weekend’s slate of movies.

YES Cinema is owned and operated by the non-profit Lincoln-Central Neighborhood Family Center. All proceeds go to support the center in its mission. The cinema is at 328 Jackson Street in downtown Columbus.
