Bernsen is hosting a private screening for investors, crew members, media and several lucky ticket winners on Sunday, Dec. 9 at the Akron Summit County Public Library. The screening will be followed by a holiday pizza party.

NOTE: We will be giving away multiple tickets to this exclusive screening away on Channel 3 News Today. Tune in on Saturday, Dec. 8 at 9 a.m. for your chance to win.

"We couldn't have done this without the generosity of the Akron area and the broader community," Bernsen said.

The Akron screening comes one day after Bernsen hosts a red carpet premiere of "3 Day Test" in Hollywood.

All local Acme stores will be selling "3 Day Test" throughout the holiday season for $12.99. $1 from each DVD sold will be donated to the All-American Soap Box Derby, which Bernsen made his first Akron-lensed movie about -- "25 Hill."

Bernsen will be signing copies of "3 Day Test" at the Acme Fresh Market in the 1800 block of West Market Street on Monday, Dec. 10 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.

"3 Day Test," which was already released on DVD nationwide on Nov. 6, stars George Newbern, Megyn PriceTaylor Spreitler and Bernsen himself.

The movie is about a man who forces his family to go through a survivalist test for three days without any luxuries like phones, running water or electricity for three days during the holiday season.

Bernsen says the centerpiece of "3 Day Test" is "the importance of family and community as building blocks for our society."

The film won the "Family Event" award when it was first shown in October at the Heartland Film Festival.

The movie, which first started rolling near the University of Akron on March 19, was filmed in multiple locations throughout the Akron area and used dozens of local people as extras. In early April, Bernsen gave local law enforcement and medical workers the chance to have a spot in the film as part of a large action sequence filmed on Worthington Road.

Bernsen also turned to 1590 WAKR morning show host Ray Horner to provide a radio voice in "3 Day Test," which you can hear in the beginning of the trailer posted below. It was the second time Bernsen has featured Horner in his both Akron-based films after first using him as the race announcer for the championship round in "25 Hill."

Bernsen has said that he enjoys making movies in Akron because he has a "love affair" with the city.

Bernsen, who may best be known for his role as Roger Dorn in the "Major League" movies, can currently be seen on USA's "Psych."
