Films of the Piedmont Triad: “The 5th Quarter”

Stokes Arts has partnered with the Piedmont Triad Film Commission to bring FREE monthly film screenings to The Arts Place of Stokes.

July 28th we present “The 5th Quarter,” which features the 2006 Wake Forest football season — when the Deacs were predicted to be in last place but ended up ACC Champions — as a backdrop for a more personal story. Defensive player Jon Abbate (’10) lost his younger brother Luke in an auto accident at home in Marietta, Ga., before the season began. The movie depicts the family’s struggles with grief, but also how the team’s successes on the football field gave them something to rally behind.

The free movie screening begins at 7pm, with concessions available to benefit the Stokes Arts Scholarship Fund.  For more information, call 336-593-8159.
