During the day, I saw a tweet by @LawrenceLamont saying "If you're in LA, you need to be at the #CornerStore premier tonight at Culver Plaza Theatre." Then I said to myself, "I'm in LA, and literally right around the corner from the Culver City Plaza Theatre. What should we do about this?" After some debate, we decided to forgo our previous plans and support this Detroit-made independent film.
I've been aware of this movie since this past summer. I knew a variety of people that were helping out with different roles of the film, and I sort of watched it progress via Facebook and Twitter. I felt this was a good opportunity to support it, especially since everything seemed to fall into place perfectly for us to do so. Plus, anytime I'm able to support Detroit, especially while I'm out here in LA, I'm there.
After the film, they had a Q&A segment with the director, producers, and leading actors. It was a great taste of the LA film industry with a taste of Detroit mixed in. Check out the trailer:
