Provo, UTAH – The award-winning Brigham Young University student film Inspector 42 will hold public screenings on June 8th at Megaplex 8 at Thanksgiving Point Theatre at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. The film’s cast and crew will conduct a brief question and answer session after each screening.
“This entire film plays like a jaw-droppingly awesome episode of The Twilight Zone,'”
said Paris Barclay, two-time Emmy-winning television director/producer (“Glee,” “NYPD
Blue,” “ER,” “Lost,” “CSI,” “House M.D.”). “It talks about honesty in our lives and in society. I
honestly believe this film is about as good as it gets.”
The 26-minute short film won Best Drama and Best Director at the 2010 College Television Awards (also known as the Student Emmys), a regional Student Academy Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and the Gold Audience Choice Award at the 2010 Park City Film Music Festival.
“Working on Inspector 42 was an extraordinary experience and we’re thrilled with the recent success of the film,” said Nathan D. Lee, director. “Though it has been shared in festivals and competitions nationwide, Utah audiences haven’t had many opportunities to see our film. We’re excited to have these screenings to share it with filmgoers here at home.”
Both the 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. showings of Inspector 42 on June 8th will feature digital projection and the film’s new Dolby surround sound mix.
Tickets can be purchased for five dollars at the Megaplex 8 at Thanksgiving Point Theatre box office at 2935 Thanksgiving Way, Lehi, Utah, or online at www.megaplextheatres.com. Ticket information and additional information on the film is available at www.inspector42.com.
