Academy Award-winning Screenwriters Coming to UNCW

Thursday, March 28, 2013

The UNCW Honors College invites the campus and community to a special advanced screening of The Way, Way Back, a Fox Searchlight Picture written and directed by Academy Award winners Nat Faxon and Jim Rash.

Faxon and Rash are accomplished screenwriters, actors, and directors who have been active in feature films and on television for many years. Faxon recently appeared in the Fox situation comedy Ben and Kate and Rash appears presently in the NBC sitcom Community.  

In addition to a number of panel discussions and educational events for students, Faxon and Rash will provide two free, but ticketed, special screenings of their soon-to-be released feature film, The Way, Way Back, on Tuesday, April 2 at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. in the Lumina Theater ahead of the film’s national release this summer.  At the conclusion of the 7 p.m. showing, Faxon & Rash will discuss their film with the studio audience and some of the creative, editing, or directing decisions they made during the making of the film.

Tickets will be available one hour before each showing at the Lumina Theatre box office on a first-come, first-served basis, but only tickets for the 7 p.m. showing will include the Q&A by the filmmakers.  

Screening attendees are strongly encouraged to not bring cell phones, mp3 players, iPads, iPods, or other electronic devices to either showing as the possession of these items will result in denial of entry to the theater.

For more information on ticketing for this event, call Sharky's Box Office at 910.962.4045.  See flyer for more information.
