NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – On September 8, at 7 p.m., North Myrtle Beach Area Historical Museum will host the regional premiere of award-winning film Call of the Ancient Mariner by filmmaker David Weintraub. The viewing will be held in the NMB Museum’s changing gallery, located at 799 2nd Avenue North in North Myrtle Beach. Weintraub will be available to discuss the making of the documentary following the showing.

The film, which was shot throughout the Southeastern United States, primarily in South Carolina, delves into the world of turtles and man over thousands of years.

“Everything about turtles is unusual, their shell, their connection to land and sea, their mysterious disappearance into the wide sea and the way they return back to the beach where they were born (or nearby) after traveling as far as half-way around the world. This fascination has mesmerized mankind throughout history and sea turtles continue to intrigue us today,” Weintraub said.

Sandra Buchan, of the NMB Museum, suggests reserving your seat if you plan to attend. “There is limited space for the film’s local debut and seats are going quickly,” Buchan said.

Call the NMB Museum at (843)-427-7668 to reserve your seat. Tickets prices are $12 per adult, $7 per youth and $5 per museum member. T-shirts and DVDs will also be available for purchase after the screening.
