Project Main Details

Wednesdays at the Gem 
The filmmakers are creating a "teaser/trailer" for an independent feature film. This movie is in the development/fund raising stage and will use this to generate interest for investors and distributers.

The filmmakers have produced two successful indy film in 2011 and have great expectations for Wednesdays at the Gem, their next feature.

The narrator is an elderly woman (present day) looking back at her past to the year 1939 when she was a ticket taker at the GEM movie theatre. She is recounting the story of how she helped to sneak the negro population of a neighboring town into the movies every wednesday night.

The tone is reflective, sweet, thoughtful and at times full of sad or intense emotion. (Hint: Lives were lost. People died)

Script Details


The tone is reflective, sweet, thoughtful and at times full of sad or intense emotion. (Hint: Lives were lost. People died) 
elderly woman's voiceover:

Long before there was a lunch counter in Greensboro or a bus strike in Selma, there was a movie theatre called the Gem.

For the price of a five cent ticket, Americans could sit in the dark for a few hours, forget their troubles...and escape (long pause) Everyone, except blacks.

In 1939, in the Depression Era South...The Jim Crow laws said separate but equal.
But Aaron and I had some other ideas.

We had to be sure everybody kept quiet about our “special showings”.
Because all that stood between us and a disaster- was a thin alleyway door.

Of course when a famous Hollywood actress came to town ...things got ...interesting

We thought we had it all under control.

SFX: POW! Gunshot...

Change and true acceptance often come at a great cost. But every Wednesday at the Gem...the projector secretly rolled...and the boundaries were pushed... a little bit more
