The Hatteras Island residents who worked behind the scenes and in front of the camera on "Nights in Rodanthe" will get a chance to see the movie next month, just two days after it premieres in New York City.
The movie starring Richard Gere and Diane Lane was filmed partially in Rodanthe and other parts of the island and also in Wilmington in 2007. An invitation-only screening will be held Sept. 24 at a Kill Devil Hills theater. A similar event is planned for the next night in Wilmington.
The managing director of the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau said she's offering the 210 seats first to locals who worked on the movie.
The movie is based on a book by Nicholas Sparks, who lives in New Bern.
