I’m pleased to invite you to a FREE SCREENING of the latest feature film I’m in, “The Bequeather,” a “Young Frankenstein”/”Airplane”-inspired farcical comedy by Justen Overlander.
Admit it. You grew up loving the pun-filled, slapstick comedies of Mel Brooks (“Young Frankenstein”) and the Zucker brothers (“Airplane”). Well, local genius-of-many-hats, Justen Overlander, has written, directed, and stars in his own homage to such screwball comedies in his film, “The Bequeather.” (He also had the good sense to cast me in it!)

Now’s your chance to see it on the silver screen at Minnesota’s premier art deco theater, The Heights Theater, on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. FOR FREE!!! (Donations are accepted but not required.) Only thing is, you HAVE TO RSVP to be guaranteed a seat. When you click on that link, please type in that Sid referred you. I get brownie points for bringing in the most audience members. I could win a banana-seat bike or something equivalently cool! 🙂

“The Bequeather,” private free screening

If you want to come, please RSVP right away as reservations are first-come, first-serve.  Once the theater’s capacity is filled, RSVPs will no longer be taken.
While the screening is FREE, we will be accepting donations to help cover the cost of the theater rental and hopefully cover the costs of getting into 10-15 film festivals (or more!).  You are under no obligation to donate, but if you’re so moved, there is a link on the movie’s website, or you can certainly donate at the screening.
Also, please patronize the theater by buying some concessions while you’re there.
