Smith Mountain Lake Virginia | Westlake: October 8, 2011
Last night the Westlake Cinema was a buzz with the red carpet opening of Smith Mountain Lake’s own “Lake Effects” Movie. The stars came out, as well as, area residents and local business owners for the screening. Limos were stretched from one end of Westlake Plaza to the other.
The plot as seen on IMBD reads as follows: Sara and Lily grew up at Smith Mountain Lake. Sara became estranged from the family and without explanation moved to Los Angeles to study law. Her sister Lily, an artist, teaches locally and lives with their parents, Ray and Vivian, until Dad dies in an accident. Sara returns to help settle his estate, and all our ladies cross paths with an eclectic group of local oddballs, as they search for a Loch Ness-style monster they believe lurks in the lake’s depths. A few real Smith Mountain Lake characters make appearances. The next week at the lake is filled with adventure, tears, and laughter as Vivian and her two daughters finally understand, through the guidance of Dad’s spirit, if they still belong on the lake, even though Ray is gone. All paths converge at the Smith Mountain Lake Wine Festival, on course for a heart-warming and hilarious collision. As Written by Mike McKay
What a wonderful way to honor the memory of “Lake Effects” writer Scott Winters, who died earlier this year–he will surely be missed, but his work will live on.
Local News Outlets and papers are clear to remark that, not only do they foresee tourism increasing in 2012, they are certain that no matter what state you see this Jane Seymour movie in, you will be sure to want to visit Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia and all of it’s beauty and charm. And with this, lakefront lots and waterfront home sales should increase substantially in 2012 and beyond.
Watch for “Lake Effects” coming to your theater or DVD.
This marks the second major movie to be filmed on Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia–the first, was “What About Bob?” in 1991
