Film Targets Priest River Reinvention

Producer Scott Gardenhour (Pain and Gain, Pearl Harbor, Coyote Ugly) will screen his short film about Priest River, Idaho to the people of Priest River Monday evening, June 30th at 7:00pm in the Beardmore Building on Main Street, Priest River, Idaho. It's something Scott Gardenhour felt as a boy growing up in a small town, Smithsburg, Maryland: the energy, the decency, the integrity of small town America.  He would have stayed in Smithsburg if there had been an opportunity to make a living and raise a family. But there wasn't. So Scott followed his sister to Hollywood. Slept on couches. Paid his dues and is now part of one of Hollywood's most prolific production companies. Now, as he sees it, it's time to give back. And that's exactly what he's doing in small-town Priest River, Idaho/Wall Street Journal. More here.

Question: Have you ever lived in a town as small as Priest River?
