“Dead Weight” Screened at Ephraim Movie Theatre

The North Ephraim Theater sponsored by High Point Inn presents an encore presentation of Dead Weight on Aug. 24 at 9 pm.

In the wake of an apocalyptic viral outbreak, Charlie Russell treks through the wilderness to reunite with his girlfriend Samantha. As Charlie’s journey brings him closer to his destination of Wausau, Wis., he must face physical exhaustion, malicious survivors, and his own emotional burdens. Charlie must attempt to break his obsessions with the past; he must learn to let it go.

Dead Weight was produced entirely within the state of Wisconsin. The production was written and directed by longtime friends, and Oshkosh natives, Adam Bartlett and John Pata between late 2009 and early 2012.

Admission is $5. The North Ephraim Theater will close out the season on Aug. 31 with Not There Yet, a drama set in Door County. The movie features many local actors and locations.

The theater is located between the Red Putter Mini Golf and Joe Jo’s Pizza and Gelato. For more information find them on Facebook or visit
