Stacye and Lannie Jarrell at Atlanta Showing of "The Last Song," by Chris Hornaday, (with permission, copyright 2010)

Lannie and Stacye Jarrell recently had the pleasure of attending an early showing of Disney’s “The Last Song” in Atlanta, and were asked to give a “Tybee-style” accounting of the movie and the island to the anxious audience prior to the show. Here’s what happened that night in Stacye Jarrell’s own words:

“Lannie and I were very excited when our publicist, Toren Anderson, called and told us that we had been invited by Disney to an early premiere in Atlanta to see “The Last Song” on Wednesday, on March 24th.  We drove to Atlanta hoping to see Tybee Island looking beautiful.

Prior to the screening we were asked to introduce ourselves and speak on behalf of Tybee Island.  Toren gave a brief explanation as to where Tybee Island is located and how quick and easy the drive is.  We also were able to discuss how fortunate we are that the movie was filmed in Georgia and not in North Carolina.  The room was about 90 per-cent full of media and excited young movie goers, many who stood up and told us how much they loved Tybee. Together, we all anticipated viewing the scenes just so we could ‘spot something, Tybee.’

“The Last Song” was an excellent movie!  In fact, we enjoyed the story line and actors so much that sometimes we forgot to look for all of the “Tybee details.”  Miley Cyrus was excellent, Greg Kinnear was wonderful and naturally, Liam Helmsworth, (but the star of the show was Bobby Soleman who played Miley’s younger brother).  Even my husband commented on how much he enjoyed the story line and individual performances. (He even posed with me in front of the poster above!)  Tybee looked amazing!  Wormsloe was also gorgeous and our entire area photographed beautifully.

At the end of the movie we just sat and watched everyone leave – the younger viewers were singing the theme song as they exited the theater.  I could just imagine these happy movie goers all going back to watch the movie with other friends this coming weekend.

We were truly glad to have been able to go and enjoy this experience in Atlanta and can only hope that each of you enjoy the movie and Tybee’s photography as much as we did – it will be playing in local theater’s for several weeks.

The Chapel looks fabulous, too!”
