Last Friday, we opened up at the Laemmle Sunset 5 with no idea of how the screening will be received back in Los Angeles. With numerous emails and facebook event invites, all of our friends and acquaintances were notified of this theatrical release and I must say, we were really happy with the turnout.
Theater 3 where LiTTLEROCK was playing holds 128 people. All 128 seats were filled up. People were being turned away at the door for not having bought tickets online. It was insane.
One of the recurring themes in the film is the fact that Cory (Zacharia) a local in the town of Littlerock, dreams of being an actor in Hollywood but can never make it out there. We didn’t know if that would be the same course that our film would take, but Littlerock being the film’s main setting, only 70 miles away from Hollywood, actually made it to Hollywood. And across from the Marmont.
It’s still a constant struggle to get the film out there and to get people to leave their house, find parking, buy tickets, and sit through an hour and a half of a film about two Japanese tourists… so to everyone who came out, a million thanks. Your support means so much to us… and makes the journey that we took from production to post-production to whatever it is we’re going through now much more worth it.
It’s still playing at the Laemmle Sunset 5 until the 8th of this month, then it plays at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco from the 9th-15th. Nor Cal friends, I hope to see you up there! Director Mike Ott and I will be at the screening on the 9th and the 10th.
