A Hard Gamble

“A Hard Gamble,” a throwback to Humphrey Bogart detective films of the 1940s shot in black and white, will be among the films screened Sunday Night at the First Baptist Church. Pastor Jay Underwood plays the security guard (third from the left, with hat).

First Baptist Church in Weaverville will be hosting a student film night presented by The Master’s University of Southern California at 6 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 11, in the Family Life Center.  

The Master’s University is a nationally ranked Christian university that gives its students a Biblical worldview through all courses of study.

Matt Green, associate professor of Communication and chair of Cinema and Digital Arts at TMU, will be in attendance to introduce the student-produced films and answer questions about the school and its communication and film departments.  

The screening will include four or five short films of different genres, including “Day 37” (thriller), “Lunch Rush” (musical), “Drift” (sci-fi) and “A Hard Gamble” (paying homage to the great detective movies of the 1940s).

The screening is free but a snack bar with sweet treats for purchase is available.

Come at 5:30 p.m. and purchase a $5 dinner. All proceeds from the dinner and snack bar will go to the church’s youth group.  

First Baptist Church is located at 1261 Main St. in Weaverville.  

Call the church office at 623-4191 for more information.
