It’s Movie Time!

Wednesday, January 9 by JerryFoster

Not from the movie but from the AT in Maine

Join us Saturday January 26 at 7:30pm for a showing of TREK: A Journey on the Appalachian Trail, at the West Windsor Arts Center. Admission is free for WWBPA or WWAC members, $5 otherwise.

The movie tells “the story of four young men and the people they meet as they attempt to hike the 2,168 miles of the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. Shot and edited by the hikers themselves, this documentary is one of the most accurate portrayals of the thru-hiker lifestyle that has been produced to date. Spanning 14 states and five months, this critically-acclaimed film will inspire you to follow your own dreams, no matter what the odds.

Here’s more about the movie and the trailer.

The West Windsor Arts Center is at the corner of Alexander and Scott, the box office opens at 7pm – hope to see you there!
