Rivertown,” a feature film shot in Snohomish County, opens this week at several local theaters.

The film, which stars Everett Community College students, was shot on location in Snohomish and Monroe in 2010.

Danny Nelson stars in the film and wrote the screenplay. The story is loosely based on his experience growing up in Monroe.

It’s a comedy involving a failed pawnshop, a garage sale and three college students who get stranded.

The film is being distributed by the Washington State Studio Network, a new nonprofit entertainment group run by John Baunsgard, who also directed “Rivertown.”

Many of the filmmakers and actors will be at the local showings to answer questions.

“Rivertown” is scheduled to screen at the following locations:

4 p.m. today, Mobius Hall, Cascadia Community College, 18345 Campus Way NE, Bothell. Admission is free.

7 p.m. Thursday, Baker 120, Everett Community College, 2000 Tower St., Everett. Admission is free.
