CinemaKC, a non-profit film organization which spotlights films and filmmakers of the area, will partner with sponsor KC Film Office at Visit KC, to present a series of classic feature films that were filmed in the region, with Kansas City locations, cast and crew. The screening series will be a reunion of personnel who worked on the high-profile projects, as well as an opportunity to introduce new audiences to the big-screen experience. More special guests will be announced in future releases.
The second in the series, "Article 99," made by director Howard Deutch and starring Keifer Sutherland, Lea Thompson, Ray Liotta, and a who's who of actors will screen Friday, November 9 at 7:00 PM at the Screenland Medallion Theatre at Plexpod Westport Commons, located at 300 E 39th Street in Kansas City, Mo. Prior to the screening, at 5:30 pm, VIP ticket holders will enjoy live jazz music by Danny Peete at a VIP Jazz Reception, sponsored by Jazz For Good Foundation and hosted by The Sundry Restaurant, also located on the Plexpod Commons.
Preceding the screening, those who worked on or otherwise had an association with the film will share anecdotes in an open forum. The screening will be followed by a lively Q&A discussion with special guests TBA.
“Article 99 is the latest screening in our Legacy Series,” said CinemaKC President, Rick Brook, “highlighting feature films made here during our most recent golden age of film production in the Metro—-a spotlight on the past as a beacon for future production in Kansas City.”
“Celebrating our film history reminds us that we have always had a vibrant creative community,” comments Steph Scupham of the KC Film Office. “Many of the people that worked as cast and crew on Article 99 are still working in the film industry and living in Kansas City today. Every film made in Kansas City is a contribution to the creative economy and our collective legacy.”
