ENDERBY, B.C. – A major motion picture shot in British Columbia will have its premiere showing at a small Okanagan community’s drive-in theatre.

Blackway will hit theatres across North America on June 10, a week after it debuts at the Starlight Drive-In in Enderby, B.C.

The R-rated thriller stars Anthony Hopkins, Julia Stiles and Ray Liotta, and was shot mostly in and around Enderby and Lumby, B.C.

The plot follows an ex-logger who comes to the aid of a woman who returns to her hometown, and finds herself harassed by a former cop turned crime lord.

The film’s producer, Rick Dugdale, is from Enderby and says it was pretty special to shoot a movie in his hometown.

He says he always tries to go to the drive-in when he visits, and having premiere there will be nostalgic.
