"Getting Grace" premieres in Lehigh Valley

The Oscars isn't the only event where the red carpet's being rolled out this weekend.

A feature film shot entirely in the Lehigh Valley premiered Saturday at ArtsQuest in Bethlehem.

Audiences at the Frank Banko Alehouse Cinema viewed the comedy-drama "Getting Grace" for the first time.

The movie was directed and co-written by one of its stars, Bethlehem native Daniel Roebuck.

Roebuck said it was an honor to premiere the film in his hometown.

"Getting Grace" has earned awards at regional film festivals, including best film, best director and best actress for the title character, played by Madelyn Dundon, another Bethlehem native.

Proceeds from Saturday's movie ticket sales will be donated to local charities.
