ShutteRelease Films is pleased to announce that its latest documentary will be premiered at Burlington’s historic Paramount Theater on August 18, 2018. The documentary has been greatly anticipated and two shows have already sold out. To accommodate the demand, a third showing on that day has been added.
The documentary highlights the first organized drag races East of the Mississippi which ran between 1953 and 1955 in Burlington, North Carolina. It explores the microcosm of life which encompassed the community around Burlington, life in the 1940s and 1950s, and even the ravages of polio, all of which are explored within the documentary itself.
