Silverspot will be hosting a screening of the film ‘The Real Mayberry’. This is a special event featuring a Q&A with the filmmaker, Bill Hayes, immediately following the movie.
Remember the classic television show The Andy Griffith Show? Who doesn’t want to know more about Andy Griffith’s hometown? Mount Airy, North Carolina, is the place where Andy Griffith grew up, and in many ways it is the real-life Mayberry.
Filmmaker and Mount Airy native Bill Hayes explores the real characters that make up his hometown and the challenges it faces moving forward. ‘The Real Mayberry’ is an exploration of how small-town America can survive and keep its heart and soul. It compares life in Mount Airy with clips from ‘The Andy Griffith Show’.
“What a great film – a love letter to small town America. There is something for every American to lean in to in this film – whether you are a new business, a millennial, a fan of Mayberry, a farmer, or a person who wants reassurance that the American way of life is alive and well – it is in the film.” Eileen O’Neill, former General Manager of TLC and Discovery Networks
