There will be a free screening of “Mars,” a romantic comedy that follows three astronauts on the first manned mission to Mars, at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 11, in the theater of the University Center at Western Carolina University.
With a veneer of silliness, the film also is a deeper look into the nature of exploration. Writer and director Geoff Marslett will be on hand immediately after the screening to discuss the film with the audience. Marslett has won several industry awards for “Mars,” his first full-length film.
The screening is part of the Southern Circuit film tour.
