Spring Mountain FSC Benefit Screening

No Time To Die on October 18, 2021 at 6:00 pm

The Spring Mountain Fire Safe Council invites the public to a benefit screening of No Time To Die, the new James Bond film, on Monday, October 18 at 6:00 p.m. at The Cameo Cinema in St. Helena. Tickets are a suggested donation of $50. Tickets must be purchased in advance. All proceeds will be donated to the Spring Mountain Fire Safe Council. Guests will enjoy wines from wineries located in the Spring Mountain District growing region. Small food bites will also be offered by Oak Avenue Catering. Bergman Family Vineyards, an estate-vineyard winery in the Spring Mountain District AVA, is the event sponsor.

It has been a year since the Glass Fire roared through the Spring Mountain area, destroying wineries, homes and vineyards. “As we begin fundraising to support our outreach and fire prevention efforts, we wanted to start with something to gather our community together,” explain SMFSC founders Pam Bergman and Shari Gardner.

The Cameo Cinema is located at 1340 Main Street in St. Helena. The theater follows Covid protocols including mask wearing inside.

No Time To Die stars Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Christoph Waltz, Jeffrey Wright and Lea Seydoux. It’s directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and runs for 163 minutes. In No Time To Die, James Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

About the Spring Mountain Fire Safe Council:

In the aftermath of the Glass Fire, September 27 – October 20 of last year, the Spring Mountain Fire Safe Council (SMFSC) has been established. “The impact of last year’s Glass Fire prompted us to get ready for the next fire: to get the neighbors together, to do what we can to create a more resilient and fire-safe forest, to protect our homes and provide a resource for education and communication within the Spring Mountain community. We also hope to secure funding for vegetation management and other fire-safe projects,” founders Pam Bergman and Shari Gardner explain.

The SMFSC is working with a registered forester who is developing a Risk Assessment for the Spring Mountain area. The Risk Assessment is the first step toward determining the most pressing fire safety issues for the community and is required to be eligible for grant funding. The group is seeking contributions to pay for the Risk Assessment and other operating expenses for the organization.
