Can you feel the sweet sensation Hingham? Because more good vibrations will be buzzing across the Hingham sky line this Wednesday evening, December 8th with another movie premiere hosted by the sexy Mark Walberg, a source who will be attending the event tells HEC.
Two days before The Fighter goes national it will light up the big screen at the Hingham Patriots Cinema. And just before the screening, the hot spot will be at Walberg’s brother Paul’s restaurant, Alma Nove, who certainly has had no problem being the signature dish in the posh shipyard community. The after party location is still pending or has yet to be leaked.
The R-rated feature is based on the true story of boxer Mickey Ward played by Mark Walberg and his trainer bro Dick Eklund, the almost unrecognizable 100lb Christian Bale, chronicling the brothers’ early days on the rough streets of Lowell, Mass, Eklund’s battle with drugs and Ward’s fight for the title.
The premiere will be benefiting the Mark Walberg Youth Foundation, a program that gives every child a chance for a better future. Mark is all about his hometown roots and loves the bright lights in Hingham. Don’t forget to become fans of Alma Nove on FB they’ll keep you posted on the delicious daily dishes.

It was just a few months ago when Wahlberg, aka “The Other Guy” was having a beer at the Hingham Shipyard moments after the good vibrations star received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. More recently, he hooked up with Seth MacFarlane for the movie Ted and 60 Minutes ticked away sharing the stars early years growing up in Dorchester, MA Wahlberg has come full circle in The Fighter, his proudest effort yet. We won’t start any rumors that Wahlberg will be attending the Dec 10th premiere but it wouldn’t surprise us if he arrived fashionably late!
Don’t miss these two opportunities to mix and mingle with the makers of this season’s next blockbuster — made in Mass to boot! Watch the trailer below and look for one of our fav local actresses Erica McDermott, who plays a principal role as Walberg’s sister.
