A screening of the first episode of “Dearly Departed” will be held on Saturday, Oct. 19, at 6 p.m., at the Ingersoll-Blackwelder House, 10910 S. Prospect Ave.

The screening will be followed by a reception with the show’s filmmakers and actors.

“Dearly Departed,” is a Fresh Films production about April, who inherits an old bed and breakfast—and some unexpected supernatural abilities. After April’s grandmother passes away, April and her mother inherit her Victorian inn.

As the two get settled into their new home, April quickly realizes they are not alone. However, getting her mother to believe that is a different story. Join April as she steps into the supernatural world in this heartwarming, funny and suspense-filled series.

The show was produced by young filmmakers from Chicago’s South and West sides and filmed primarily at the historic Ingersoll-Blackwelder House in Morgan Park.
