Writer/director/actor, Aaron Metchik will be returning home for an encore screening of 10 YEARS LATER on Saturday, December 14 at 9:00pm at the Fair Oaks Theatre in Arroyo Grande. The 2010 film was shot in Nipomo and surrounding areas with many community members involved as cast and crew, so this will be a little reunion for a movie about a reunion!
This is the 10th event in the SLO County on the Silver Screen series, showcasing Hollywood movies filmed in San Luis Obispo County. Presented by MidAmerican Solar, proud owner of Topaz Solar Farms, the fundraising series for the 2014 SLOIFF is also sponsored by Visit San Luis Obispo County & Film Commission; Cliffs Resort, Apple Farm, Sycamore Mineral Springs and SeaVenture Resort; Q104.5 and the New Times.
10 YEARS LATER is a dark comedy about six childhood best friends returning home for
their ten year high school reunion. When one of them kidnaps an enemy from their past and inadvertently gets the others involved, each must decide whether to turn in a best friend or become accomplices in a dark plot that none of them are sure they can pull off.
The film stars Jake Hoffman (Barney’s Version, The Wolf of Wall Street), Rachel Boston
(500 Days of Summer, The Witches of East End), Kathleen Rose Perkins (Episodes, The
Pact), Senta Moses (Home Alone, Beakman’s World), Aaron Metchik (The Babysitters
Club, Trading Mom), McKinley Freeman (Days of our Lives, Sharpshooter) and James
DeBello (American Pie, Cabin Fever.) The cast was rounded out by a number of local
actors, including PCPA’s Eric Stein, John Kepler and Dottie Thompson.
The high school reunion was filmed at Nipomo High School with dozens of local extras,
and the main scenes of the movie were shot in a lovely Victorian house in Nipomo that
was un-beautified (to look like a run-down hovel) by local set designer, Shelley Malcolm.
Tickets for 10 YEARS LATER are available online now for $10 general and $8 for students and SLOIFF Film Society members. Tickets are only $5 (at the door) for anyone who was in or worked on the film. The Fair Oaks Theatre, located at 1007 E. Grand Ave. Arroyo Grande, will host the screening at 9:00pm on Saturday, December 14th. The movie is rated PG-13 for mature themes and some adult language.
