His voice changed so much, for which I will always be grateful. In that scene, he seems as if he was having trouble not laughing, when you hear the lines it's understandable.

The Rotten Tomato Film Festival Fundraiser Event, hosted by the Benzie County Chamber of Commerce, will take place Friday, April 8 at the Garden Theater.

Film fundraiser to feature vicious vegetables

FRANKFORT – Lock the doors, bar the windows and don’t say “ketchup,” the killer tomatoes will be rolling into Frankfort soon.

The villainous vegetables will be part of the Rotten Tomato Film Festival Fundraiser Event, hosted by the Benzie County Chamber of Commerce. On April 8, starting at 6 p.m. the Garden Theater will be showing “The Killer Tomatoes,” followed by “Revenge of the Killer Tomatoes.”

“The festival is a fundraiser for the Chamber,” said Mary Carroll, president of the Benzie County Chamber of Commerce. “All of the proceeds will go towards the technology fund.”

Carroll said a few upgrades to current equipment would help the Chamber’s staff do a better job of serving area businesses. A new website is also in the works.

Between movies, a 45-minute intermission will be held at the Betsie Bay Inn, where tomato-themed drinks and appetizers will be served, along with several non-tomato items. A wine tasting is also scheduled.

Local musician Hanna Rae Beale will give a special performance as well.

Other area businesses will hold special sales in honor of the festival. A Shear Class Experience Salon and Day Spa in Elberta will be offering a tomato facial, and Hull’s of Frankfort will feature a 10 percent discount on all red items.

Tomato-shaped stress balls, provided by Mobility Now, will also be handed out to the first 100 moviegoers.

“The idea behind the festival was the brainchild of Mary Weishaar, chair of the Chamber’s Fundraising Committee,” said Carroll. “The idea was to hold a film festival featuring some of the classic ‘bad’ movies; the kind you would throw a rotten tomato at the screen while watching.”

Carroll said it was only natural to play the killer tomato movies, both classics in their own awful ways.

“Attack of the Killer Tomatoes” is a cult classic, with its cheesy story about mutant tomatoes running amok and catchy theme song. In “Revenge of the Killer Tomatoes,” the vicious vegetable has been banned, but a mad scientist finds a way to turn tomatoes into an army of commandos, and a young George Clooney must figure out how to stop him.

“We just want people to have fun with some goofy movies on a Friday night,” Carroll stated. “We figure people have cabin fever and could use a few good laughs.”

If the event works out well, Carroll said the film festival could become an annual event, featuring other “bad” classics as well.

Tickets to the festival are $15 and can be purchased at the Chamber, Betsie Bay Inn or at the door on the night of the event. The price includes a tomato button to signify purchase, along with appetizers and wine tasting.

Hate to disappoint anyone, but I'm from America and have always pronounced it - to-may-toes.
