This Weekend’s Downbeach Film Festival Premieres Horror Flick & Unseen Boardwalk Empire Episode

Courtesy of the Downbeach Film Festival

The Downbeach Film Festival celebrates it’s 5th anniversary this weekend with a variety of movies, shorts, and documentaries being screened at four locations in Atlantic City.  This local celebration of the movies has shown remarkable growth in just a few years.   From humble beginnings of  showing a  few select movies… in the Margate Performing Arts Center over a weekend, the Festival has expanded and smartly incorporated help from Atlantic City’s casinos in the last couple years.

The year’s Festival has even scored a coupe of showing a sneak-preview screening of the new Boardwalk Empire episode a day before it will first air on HBO.  The  episode will be shown at 2p.m. on Saturday, October 13th at Dante Hall Theater, at 14 North Mississippi Avenue.  Terence Winter, the series creator, producer and head -writer will be on hand to moderate the episode showing with a Q & A session afterwards.

This weekend’s the Downbeach Film Festival’s opening night features a session with veteran indie filmmaker Robert Downey, Sr. at Showboat Atlantic City and a showing of his  classic 1969 film “Putney Swope”.

Sunday afternoon, the Festival features a terror triple feature at  Golden Nugget that includes the world premiere of “The Meat Puppet,” written by and starring, Keith Collins. The day also includes two South Jersey-based movies, Keith Vaile’s “Azrael” and Evelle Mitchell’s “Armageddon Ed’s Ticket to Hell”.

Films will be screened at four locations this weekend: The Orleans Room at the Showboat Casino, Dante Hall Theater, The Carnegie Center on Pacific Avenue and the Golden Nugget Casino.
