This free documentary viewing party will feature food, beer and wine for purchase, in addition to live music from some of the film’s cast as well as a few songs from the honoree, Mac Leaphart.
Leaphart was diagnosed with a brain tumor that required immediate and invasive surgery, which left a financial strain on the local singer-songwriter. The documentary concert was filmed in January and helped raise $10,000.
The event begins at 5:30 p.m., and the movie starts at 7:30 p.m. on the outdoor screen. Go to cinebarre.com.
