Summer of ’67 Movie Tour

Wow! What an amazing way to start off the Summer of ’67 movie tour. We kicked off opening weekend at #6 out of the 20 movies showing at the Nashville Regal, which is especially cool, considering we were a tiny indie in a field of blockbusters. Then we got carried over for a second week!

Now, we’re getting ready for a week at Showplace Cinemas in Evansville, Indianapolis with the Great Lakes Christian Film Festival immediately following. So far, we’ve got 14 screenings lined up through November and we’re constantly adding more.

We’d love to bring Summer of ’67 to your theater, event, or church. We’re offering free screenings for all events lined up prior to November 18, 2018. Depending on the time and location, we’d love to join you for your screening. I can do a presentation ahead of time or we can do a filmmaker Q and A after the movie. Just fill out the form and we’ll do what we can to make it happen. Look forward to hearing from you and hopefully bringing Summer of ’67 to you!

Actor Cameron Gilliam, Actress Rachel Schrey, and actress Mimi Sagadin in Summer of '67Inspired by real life events, Summer of ’67  brings to life the turbulent times of the sixties and the struggles faced by the men and women impacted by the Vietnam War. Young wife and mother Milly (Rachel Schrey) is forced to live with her mother-in-law while her husband Gerald (Cameron Gilliam) is away on the USS Forrestal. Kate (Bethany Davenport) must choose between Peter (Christopher Dalton) her high school sweetheart and Van (Sam Brooks) her new hippie boyfriend. Ruby Mae (Sharonne Lanier) finally finds true love with Reggie (Jerrold Edwards) only to have him whisked away by the draft. Each woman faces the question of whether or not their man will return, and even if he does, will life as they know it ever be the same?

Summer of ’67 is inspired by my parents’ experience. My dad was aboard the USS Forrestal when it caught fire. He survived, but hearing his story as I was growing up, it made me wonder what it must have been like for my mother and the other women who were at home waiting for the return of their men.

Summer of ’67 is my way of showing respect to those men and women who sacrificed much for their country.
