Many of us have been waiting looooooong time for the restoration of the Park Cinema, and now it has finally come to fruition.
From the Projo:
CRANSTON, R.I. – The newly renovated and renamed Park Cinema (now the Rhode Island Center for Performing Arts at the Historic Park Theater) will present its first film premier on Saturday, Nov. 28.
The newly opened Cranston landmark in Rolfe Square will screen “Lumberjacking” an independent feature comedy that was filmed in Rhode Island. It was made by Rich Camp, Frank Iacobucci, Joe Agresti and Matt Zuena. The movie is about a lumberjack in the 1960s who refuses to give up his axe for a chainsaw, a kind of “Paul Bunyan” story.
The cast and crew will be attending the event at the center, which now includes a restaurant, a lounge, a cybercafé and a 1,150-seat theater.
The show begins at 8 p.m. For tickets, $10, visit lumberjackmovie.com. The movie is not recommended for those younger than 13.
