Washington, CT - “Camp Columbia,” a film by the 2011 Glenholme Movie Club, had its world premiere in The Center for the Arts on Thursday, August 4, 2011, with all of the red carpet glitz and glamour of a true Hollywood debut. The film’s actors, directors, producers, screen writers, and crews both production and sound paraded down the red carpet, greeted their fans, smiled for the flashing cameras, and paused to sign autographs as they made their way into the theater for the first big screen showing of “Camp Columbia.”

The film tells the extraordinary story of six friends who, upon discovering a strange journal, embark on an adventure to solve the mystery surrounding Camp Columbia a military base inexplicably abandoned forty years ago. Set in modern day New England, the color film flashes back to black and white images of the military camp and hospital during the late 1960s, where service men were suffering from a mysterious illness. A handful of student and staff cameos throughout the film provide just the right amount of comedic relief. Ultimately, “Camp Columbia” delivers a heartwarming finale, sure to please critics and audiences alike.

Now entering its sixth year, the Club continues to grow in popularity.

Rated G, "Camp Columbia" is a definite "must see" for everyone in the Glenholme community. Mark Bonaguide, the Movie Club’s instructor, told Glenholme newscasters that "it is, by far, our best production to date.”
