Sela Ward's latest movie, The Stepfather, opened in theatres nationwide Friday.
The Radio People hosted a contest to give away tickets to the premiere showing in Meridian.
Organizers of the contest say it's a great way to show support for a hometown celebrity.
"You always want to take care of your hometown people. And you certainly want to show support because you never know who the next Three Doors Down is going to be or the next Sela Ward is going to be," said Scott Stevens of The Radio people. "And you know, if it wasn't for the support of local radio stations and local media to help support these people, maybe they wouldn't have the encouragement to do it."
Ward plays a woman who is happily married to a man, who turns out not to be the man he appears to be.
