The Other House

ARTS/West presents the local premiere of THE OTHER HOUSE, a movie

ARTS/West, 132 W. State St. is hosting the premiere of The Other House, directed by Steve Fetsch and produced by Amy Abercrombie, on July 16 and 17 at 7:00pm. Tickets to the film screenings are $4 and may be purchased at the door. Stick around after the movie for a reception to follow at 9:00pm on both nights!

The novel, The Other House, was written by Rebecca Hooper Eastman sometime before 1937, the year of her death. Seventy years later, it was privately published by her granddaughter, Amy Abercrombie, and is now an independent, full-length movie. Based on the Holdens and the Hoopers, the story centers on a beautiful young woman forced to flee to the South when a young man dies in a duel over her. She moves in with her sister in Walpole, NH where she encounters colorful relatives, two villains, and a handsome young architect who wins her heart.

The result of two years of filming in the culturally-rich Athens, OH is a striking motion picture that will surely please movie-goers everywhere. "The novel and the movie have dominated my life for nearly twenty years," admits granddaughter Abercrombie. "And I am so grateful to all who contributed to making the movie so fine." She adds that she wishes the entire country could see it and she plans to enter it into as many film festivals as possible.
