'Captain Phillips' to Screen Early at Majestic 10

Vermonters have reason to be excited about Captain Phillips, the upcoming film in which Tom Hanks re-enacts Underhill resident Richard Phillips’ 2009 ordeal at the hands of Somali pirates. (Catherine Keener plays his wife, Andrea.)

Now locals have a chance to see director Paul Greengrass’ drama early, between its September 27 New York Film Festival premiere and its October 11 wide release.

On Tuesday, October 1, at 7:30 p.m., the Majestic 10 in Williston will host the Vermont premiere of Captain Phillips as a benefit, with all proceeds going to the Sarah Ramsey Strong Scholarship Fund at Champlain College. The fund honors “a close friend of the Phillips family who died tragically earlier this year,” explains Majestic 10 owner Merrill Jarvis III.

Jarvis says Phillips will speak at the screening, which he expects to sell out. The captain and his family will also attend a preceding VIP reception to which Jarvis has invited Gov. Peter Shumlin, Vermont’s two U.S. senators, and former governor Jim Douglas.

 Tickets are $20; buy them at the theater or majestic10.com.
