Two years ago the hamlet of Adirondack was abuzz when filmmakers started shooting a feature film in and around the Adirondack General Store.
The filmmakers fell in love with the area and shot more of the film in and around Schroon Lake than they had expected. The result is a three hour indie feature: "The Night We Met".
Several locals appear as extras in the film, which has its world premiere at the Strand Theatre this weekend.
The film is directed and co-written by filmmakers Jon and Tracy Cring, of Troy. It’s the story of “an unforgettable night” shared by two young lovers.
Producer Stan Denis discovered the General Store and thought it would make an ideal setting with our lake and nearby mountains.
Other local landmarks in the film include the Strand Theatre and Seagle Music Colony.
The Crings will attend the screenings of the three hour film on Saturday and Sunday nights at 8pm. NCPR’s Todd Moe caught up with the film maskers. You can hear his report, here.
