MORIAH — The movie “Mineville” is just out on DVD and available locally.
The independent film was shot around Moriah, Crown Point and Ticonderoga in June 2010, but editing and reshooting took until now, Co-Producer/Director Lori Kelly-Bailey said.
“The movie was missing components of two scenes and a narrative thread. We have finished those editions, and we will now be able to offer the discs for sale in local establishments, as well as (later) on Amazon Video.”
Bailey said it took a while to get everything finished.
“The ‘Mineville’ DVDs, CDs, posters and so on are finally done.”
The items are at Hancock House in Ticonderoga, Penfield Homestead Museum in Crown Point, Sugar Hill B&B in Crown Point and Iron Center Museum in Port Henry.
DVDs are $12 and $10 each, posters are $3, and the combo pack of DVD movie, musical score CD, poster and postcard is $20.
Bailey said 10 percent of every purchase will be donated to the facility handling the sale.
The film is about a miner’s son and a mine owner’s son who care about the same woman while working in Moriah’s iron mines at the turn of the 20th century. It stars numerous local actors, as well as Hollywood stars such as Paul Sorvino, Jamie Tisdale and William Sadler.
Many local locations, including Moriah’s iron mines, the Port Henry train station and the Penfield Homestead were used in “Mineville.”
The picture had its premiere in Moriah and Lake Placid last summer.
