Sneak peek in Shepherdstown
“Glee” fans can see an advance screening of Chris Colfer’s new film, “Struck By Lightning,” on Sunday at Shepherdstown Opera House. The antique movie palace at 131 W. German St. is one of just 28 theaters nationwide to host such a sneak peek. Tickets for the 8 p.m. show cost $8 for students and seniors or $9.50 for general admission. Each attendee will get a raffle ticket for one of five posters to be given away at the film’s conclusion. For details, call the Opera House at 304-876-3704.
Go wild for “Buckwild”?
Tonight brings the chance to see “Buckwild,” the new MTV program that’s been described as the hillbilly version of “Jersey Shore.” Airing at 10 p.m., the 12-episode reality program showcases nine friends who live in Sissonville, a rural outpost about 15 miles north of Charleston, who spend their days and nights mud bogging, shooting guns, fighting, drinking and even using a dump truck as a swimming pool. After previews of the show began appearing, Joe Manchin, West Virginia’s junior senator, fired off a letter to network execs urging them to cancel the show before its premiere, calling the new series “repulsive” and full of inaccurate stereotypes about the Mountain State. If you tune in, share your thoughts about “Buckwild” for a feature for the Jan. 9 edition of the Spirit.
