Indy film “Mine 9” to open in Beckley

The movie, from filmmaker Eddie Mensore, tells the story of nine Appalachian coal miners who are trapped two miles underground after a methane explosion.  With only a one-hour supply of oxygen, they race to escape alive.

The movie stars local actor Kevin Sizemore as well as Terry Serpico and Mark Ashworth.  The movie opens on 25 screens in West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee.  It will expand to theaters in Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Louisiana, Utah and Pennsylvania on April 19.  A larger nationwide rollout will happen throughout April, May, and June.

In addition to the opening in Beckley on April 12, there will also be special premiere weekend events planned at the Chuck Mathena Center in Princeton, WV.
