The locally produced independent film ‘Birdies’ will premiere at Thalian Hall on January 28

After 13 years, the comedy about a struggling golf course comes to the screen with a splashing “green carpet” premiere at Wilmington’s most historic theater.

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – A local film project that’s been in the works for more than a decade finally goes from paper to premiere when the indie film “Birdies” opens Jan. 28, 2022 at Wilmington’s historic Thalian Hall, in North Carolina.

The film tells the story of a golf course that has seen better days, crazy employees who work there, and an upscale rival course that could put the bad one out of business.

Things get complicated when a new golf pro is hired to turn the tide on the shoddy course.

Brandon Luck serves as executive producer of “Birdies”, and also appears in the film as a character named Dogleg.

“We’ve been trying to get this golf comedy off the ground for almost 13 years now and we finally raised our own money and asked a lot of favors to make it happen.”

The film features local actors and the majority was shot in Foolproof golf course in Hampstead, North Carolina.

Tickets for the premiere sold out earlier in the week, but any additional tickets released would be available here
