Labor Day weekend marks one year from when production began on the family-friendly comedy “Mayberry Man,” inspired by The Andy Griffith Show. “Mayberry Man” was filmed largely in Danville and stars Danville-native Brett Varvel.
The public is invited to enjoy live music and watch the stars arrive in classic automobiles and Mayberry squad cars that were featured in the movie at 7 p.m. Sept. 4 at the Royal Theater, 59 S. Washington St., Danville.
Before the red carpet, a Mayberry Fest car show will take place 1-5 p.m.
“Mayberry Man” follows an arrogant movie star who, upon facing trouble with the law, is sentenced to attend Mayberry Fest, a weeklong festival celebrating “The Andy Griffith Show.” The movie will be in select theaters Sept. 23 and available on DVD and online beginning Oct. 1. A sneak preview is scheduled for 7 p.m. Sept. 5 at the Royal Theater.
