Catch a Local Film Premiere with The Diner
The Diner offers a refreshingly optimistic take on the science fiction genre
Thursday, Apr. 26th
There are a great number of organizations working to enrich Erie's art scene, hoping to make it a prime filming location. This makes it even more heartwarming to read that writer and director Brittany Hills' new short film, The Diner, was crowdfunded by a number of local businesses and filmed at Erie's very own summer destination, Sara's Restaurant. Hills also stars in the film alongside local actors Glenn Rolph, Cole Daniel Hills, Garrett Cradle, Josh Stephens, and Chloe Hess.
In an age dominated by Ex Machinas and Black Mirrors, The Diner offers a refreshingly optimistic take on the science fiction genre, detailing the time-traveling journey of senior citizen Jack as he attempts to cope with the death of his wife. The film's premiere will take place at Bourbon Barrel, where doors will open at 6 p.m. and the film will be shown at 7 p.m. followed by an appetizer buffet and a Q&A segment. Tickets will be available for purchase at the door. — Aaron Mook
