A private screening for cast, crew, friends and family in Sunnyside, Wash., was held at Grand Cinemas Yakima Valley on Saturday, May 11. Including the movie’s main character actor, Dwayne Bartholomew, the film’s director, Rick Castaneda, and plenty of other cast and crew in attendance, the screening was a big success.
“The screening went beyond our expectations,” Castaneda said. “Originally, they were going to put us in the 125-seat theater, so we had to limit our invitations. However, they ended up moving us to the 180-seat theater, and our fans did a good job filling that one out too.”
The theater filled not only with local actors in the film, and local crew members who assisted in the two-week Washington filming, but with several other acquaintances and fans eager to see the movie after nearly two years from when it was shot. From local media members to Castaneda’s childhood teachers and friends, to new fans who discovered the movie via Facebook or this Website, attendees formed a line starting inside and extending well outside the theater.
