Since April 20, Terrace Theater has been the local venue for Bully. The documentary follows five children and their families, exposing the often-vicious and humiliating epidemic that is taking place across the country in the hopes of changing how the problem is being handled.
Bully’s run at the Terrace is set to conclude May 4, unless, according to Paul Brown, owner of the Terrace, there is a resounding demand to keep it at the theater for an extended time. Brown believes the film reveals subjects that should be addressed by all parents, students, and educators, so he reached out to area schools and offered discounted admission prices for school groups, hoping to share this vital film with the Charleston community.
Thus far, Brown has been disheartened by the lack of turnout amongst these groups, and he hopes to attract a wider audience as the film’s tenure comes to a close. “It’s a very powerful message and a very powerful movie,” Brown says. “It stays with you.”
