The idea for the film "Copperhead" was born in New Canaan.

The Bow Tie Cinemas Playhouse, 89 Elm St., showed a pre-release screening for the Civil War drama on Wednesday, May 1. The film stars Billy Campbell, Peter Fonda, Augustus Prew and Angus Macfadyen. The movie will hit selected theaters nationally on Friday, June 28.

The local screening was a fundraiser for the New Canaan Historical Society's restoration of the Hanford-Silliman House, the family home of Justus Silliman, a New Canaan private in the Civil War.
