CLEVELAND -- A locally-produced independent film featuring WKYC anchor Robin Swoboda has extended its show times due to popular demand.
"Made In Cleveland," the largest independent film ever shot in Cleveland, is extending its run at three local Atlas Cinemas theaters for five days, starting June 28.
The film is showing in Elyria, Mayfield Heights and Mentor. Tickets are available at their box offices or at AtlasCinemas.net.
"Made in Cleveland" premiered June 13 to a sold out crowd of 425 in Euclid. Tickets were sold out a month in advance.
"The response and support for our film has been overwhelming," said Eric Swinderman, a producer, writer and director on the film. "We are gratified that local audiences are enjoying a landmark project that took 150 local actors and crew members two years to complete."
The movie is actually a collection of 11 short films about various topics -- all in Cleveland.
Marquee stars of the film include Busy Philipps, star of the ABC and now TBS comedy "Cougar Town," Gillian Jacobs, star of the NBC comedy "Community," WKYC anchor Robin Swoboda and WEWS anchor Leon Bibb.
Following the local run in Cleveland theaters, "Made in Cleveland" will have a limited theatrical release in select U.S. cities. Later, it will release internationally and on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital distribution.
The movie has not yet been rated by the MPAA.
"Made in Cleveland" is produced by local company 1031 Films LLC and distributed by New York-based Striped Entertainment.
