Los Angeles LGBT Center Will Host Two LA Movie Premieres
Los Angeles LGBT Center's Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center and StandOut Productions have announced a special, one-night-only event - the Los Angeles premiere screening of the latest work from award-winning filmmaker Andrea Meyerson. The award-winning Getting Started and One Way Street, both written and directed by Ms. Meyerson, make their LA debuts at the Center's Renberg Theatre on Saturday, August 25, at 7:30pm.
Getting Started had its world premiere in April 2018 at OUTShine Film Festival where it won the Audience Award for Best Short Film. It has also won the Audience Choice Award and Lily Tomlin Best of Fest Award at Cinema Systers Film Festival, and Best Comedy Short Film at the Kansas City LGBT Film Festival. The movie tells the story of Tori and Joy who, after meeting online, have their first date and chemistry ensues. But will their mutual attraction be enough to overcome the challenges that arise? Release date: April 2018. Running time: 23 minutes.
One Way Street explores what happens when your desire drives you in the wrong direction. Revved up by passion and ignoring all the signs, three people set out to fulfill their fantasies. Release date: March 2017. Running time: 14 minutes
The evening's activities will include a VIP pre-reception, a Q & A with cast and crew, and an after party with complimentary food buffet, full no-host bar, and dancing under the stars with DJ Stacy Christine.
General admission tickets are $30 and include the screenings, Q & A, and after party.
