A Newburyport boy appears in a movie premiering Saturday night at the Regency Theatre in Arlington.
Karl Dorogy, a 12-year-old who attends Nock Middle School, plays Trevor in “Milwood,” which was filmed in Rockland and other parts of New England over the course of 26 days in 2012.
“Milwood” tells the story of Nathan Perry, who is assigned to a facility for young adults after a fatal accident. During his time at Milwood, he becomes a victim of terror and unusual behavior.
The film, produced by Michelle Romano of Roman Media, had its world premiere at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival in France in May. It won nine awards at the CineRockom International Film Festival in October and was named the best independent feature at the Outside the Box Bakersfield Film Festival.
Saturday’s event includes a red carpet from 6 to 7 p.m. and the screening from 7 to 9 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session and reception. Tickets are $20.
The theater is located at 7 Medford St. For more information, call 781-646-4849 or visit www.regenttheatre.com.
