MARTINSVILLE, Va. (WDBJ7) A one-night showing will be held at Movie Town in Martinsville on Thursday, Aug. 4 at 7:15 p.m.


An Australian movie producer wants to give Martinsville an exclusive showing of one of his new movies.

WDBJ7 sat down with Ian Kirk. He's an executive producer of, "The DressMaker."

Kirk is visiting his family who lives at the Stoneleigh Estate in Stanleytown.

The DressMaker stars Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth

Kirk says the plan is to show the movie at the Rives Theatre as a fundraiser for the Martinsville Rotary Club.

"It was just one of those spur of the moment things where someone said oh, can we do it with the rotary club of Martinsville because I visit them when ever I'm in this area," an Executive Producer Kirk said.

Kirk says the movie is a drama with a lot of comedy.

Right now, the showing is scheduled for July 14th in Martinsville.

The movie will be available in the U.S. in September.
