Food, Inc. Coming to Sou. Pines, Aug. 13 or 14

HOLD THESE DATES! Thursday or Friday, August 13 or 14.

That is the dates the Sunrise Theater is making a special effort to bring the critical and entertaining new documentary "Food, Inc." to the Sandhills. This Summer SunFlix series offering begins at 7:30.

A lively group of local "foodies" and locavores pressed the case for it (the nearest showing is in Raleigh), and the Sunrise board listened. Hurray! Thank you Sunrise Theater!

Director Robert Kenner truly loves food. Said to be a stimulating to the national discussion of just what has happened to our food system in two or three short decades as the eye-opening Michal Pollan book "Omnivore's Dilemma," "Food, Inc." is a film everyone who eats needs to see. It just might affect your next buying trip to the store, or the next meal you eat.

Reviews for this movie are all over the web now, so check some out. One critic called it "The Inconvenient Truth of Food."

Here's one from PBS:
NOW | Behind the Food We Lovehttp://www.pbs.org/now/shows/523/index.html"Americans have a long-standing love affair with food - the modern supermarket has, on average, over 47,000 products. But do we really know what goes into making the products we so eagerly consume? David Brancaccio talks with filmmaker Robert Kenner, the director of 'Food, Inc.,' which takes a hard look at the secretive and surprising journey food takes on the way from processing plants to our dinner tables.
