“Commonwealth Curiosities; An Ode to Kentucky’s Unique Attractions” a documentary by Steven Middleton, Morehead State University instructor of mass communications, will screen Tuesday, Nov. 18, at 6:30 p.m. at CoffeeTree Books, 159 E Main Street Morehead.

The documentary shot during the summer of 2014 was funded via the online crowdfunding site Kickstarter.

Kickstarter is a global crowdfunding platform based in the United States. The company’s stated mission is to help bring creative projects to life.

“Commonwealth Curiosities” is a documentary that focuses on the old American roadside attractions and curiosities in Kentucky. In a vestige to days gone by, the film struck out in the state for roadside attractions, unknown gems, and places known only by those who have stumbled upon them.

With the advent of interstate highways, seen only by those willing to venture on the roads less traveled, these once treasured places have become nearly extinct. Commonwealth Curiosities brings a glimpse of these roadside attractions and the characters that are behind each unique place.

Additional information is available by contacting Middleton at 606-783-9583.
