The following is a news release from Dark Coast Pictures.
IDAHO FALLS — On March 12, 2016, four respected members of the Idaho Falls community were killed in a plane crash in Wyoming. Thomas and Heidi Summers, along with Jerry and Jessica Anderson were victims of the fatal crash. The two couples are survived by seven children.
There will be a Special Charity Screening to raise money for the surviving children’s college funds. Dark Coast Pictures, in conjunction with local businesses, will be hosting a Red Carpet Event Screening of the Award-Winning film, THE FLYBOYS.
The special screening will take place on Thursday, May 5th at the Academy Theater located at 2085 Niagara Street in Idaho Falls. Admission is $10 per seat with all proceeds going toward the college fund for the Summers and Anderson children.
The film was produced and directed by Rocco DeVilliers. DeVilliers was inspired to make the film after spending summers in Blackfoot Idaho with his grandparents, Don and Clarice Novas.
THE FLYBOYS has won over 70 top awards at film festivals across the country and is currently being turned into a television series.
I have so many fond memories of this community. Especially hanging out at the Blackfoot airport and playing in my grandfather’s P-51 Mustang, T-33 and Twin Beech. We are excited to screen the film in Idaho Falls and support these kids during this difficult time,” DeVilliers said. The filmmaker will be conducting a Q & A following the film.
Box Office Magazine calls THE FLYBOYS “…one of the best action movies you and your kids could see…”
