CHAPS, Sheridan's equine-assisted therapy program, has been selected as a center to premier a full-length feature film, “Unbridled,” as a fund-raiser later this month.

Kristen Marcus, executive director of CHAPS, said the event will be on Jan. 20 at Sheridan's Centennial Theatres. She said the film hasn't yet been made public.

Marcus said the showing in Sheridan will start at 10 a.m. Tickets are $8 each, and all proceeds will go to CHAPS. Marcus said tickets will be sold on Facebook as well as at the theater door. She explained how CHAPS became involved.

Marcus emailed the film's producers expressing interest, and they notified her that CHAPS has been selected.

Marcus said the movie follows a 16-year-old girl who's been abused and who is sent to an equine-assisted therapy program called “Unbridled” in North Carolina. There she meets a horse that has been equally abused, and the two learn and recover together. She said the movie is rated PG 13 because there are some very intense scenes.

She said concessions sold at the showing go to the movie theater. She added she's very grateful to Centennial owner Bill Campbell, who has been very generous to CHAPS in donating the theater for the premier.
