When 615 Film reached out to us to host the first installment of their 615 Screening Series, we agreed before we even knew it was for Patrick Read Johnson’s 5-25-77. If you aren’t familiar with this film, go back and check our TrailerTown on it from almost 2 years ago (yeah, we’ve been excited about this for that long).

This is a really cool event, but we’ll let the guys over at 615 Film give you the details:

We’re gearing up to host our very first 615 Film Screening Series installment with Nashville’s first (we think) showing of the coming of age dramedy 5-25-77.

The screening will take place at the Regal Hollywood 27 on Thursday, July 19 at 7:30 p.m., but to ensure we’re able to hit the number necessary to host the show, we’ll need YOU (yes, you, you reading this article) to book your ticket now to let the good folks at Gathr know you’re coming!

Writer/director Patrick Read Johnson (Spaced Invaders, Baby’s Day Out, Dragonheart) will join us for the screening to participate in a Q&A and meet-and-greet at a soon-to-be-shared location post-film.

We live for this shit, and definitely want you to join us for the kick-off of this screening series. In order for us to lock this in, you need to click the link below and RSVP that you will be there so we can reserve the venue.


Finally, here’s more information about the movie, in case you’re curious:

A self-autobiographical labor of love from veteran filmmaker Patrick Read Johnson, 5-25-77 tells the tale of an aspiring filmmaker (played by Freaks and Geeks star John Francis Daley) who gets the once-in-a-lifetime chance to be the first person to get a glimpse of a galaxy far, far away, and how this chance encounter affects his future. The film has been in production for years (literally — principle production took place in 2004-06, with extra footage added nearly ten years later), and finally hit theaters last year.
