Excited about this!! It’s not everyday that Elkhart, Indiana gets a taste of Hollywood, but soon that will be changing. On Friday, July 21st, Hollywood film producer and Elkhart County resident, Lucas Miles of Miles Media, is bringing his newest film, Crowning Jules, starring Kristy Swanson, Kevin Farley, and Kenton Duty to the Lerner Theatre. Miles, a recipient of two prestigious Dove Awards for family friendly films, describes his newest feature, “It’s a story of twin sisters on a road trip to Boston to attend a national beauty pageant. Along the way, mayhem ensues and they find themselves caught in the middle of an international jewel heist.” Continuing he adds, “Crowning Jules is written by Disney writer, Shea Fontana, and is really a culmination of everything I loved about films growing up. I tried to take a modern story, but give it the heart and adventure of some of the best 80’s films, like Ferris Buehler’s Day Off or Goonies.”
Like the release of any major motion picture, the Elkhart-based premiere for Crowning Jules will feature a star-studded red carpet walk, a Hollywood style photo booth, a VIP pre-party, and celebrity autographs. Speaking of celebrities, in attendance will be Hollywood mainstay Kristy Swanson, known, among other things, for her role as the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as well as, Kenton Duty (Lost and Disney’s Shake it Up Chicago), the Labadie twins, young heartthrob Derek Brandon, and local celebrities Lisa Varga, Mekayla Diehl-Eppers, Lucas Miles, and WSBT’s Jennifer Copeland.
Tickets for the event can be purchased directly from www.thelerner.com and include two options, a general admission ticket, and for those wanting the full Hollywood experience, an upgraded VIP pass, which includes a catered pre-event, cash bar, a special gift from South Bend Chocolate Company, and a chance to mingle with leading talent.
