 A local production company will show a documentary on the town of Graniteville at the Imperial Theatre in Augusta on July 9.

Graniteville: Past, Present, Future, created by Bryton Entertainment will reveal the 170-year history and offer a view into the future of the mill town, from its founding by William Gregg to the massive derailment of a train in 2005 that spilled 60 tons of chlorine gas. The film, built from more than 40 interviews and 500 hours of animations and recreations, concludes with visions for the future of the town after the closing of Avondale Mills.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7. Tickets cost $15 each with a portion of the proceeds going to the Graniteville Vaucluse Warrenville Investment Committee.
