Theater troupe hosts independent film series
FORT MYERS, FL — The amateur acting troupe Theatre Conspiracy has begun showing an independent film series at their 50-seat blackbox theater between theatrical productions.
The move comes as donations have dropped by 50% although tickets to their performances are selling well.
The troupe is negotiating directly with filmmakers' agents to obtain the films on DVD. They will be projected on a 16-foot by 8-foot screen in the makeshift movie theater.
The series, which started last weekend, consists of: the French thriller “Tell No One,” “Dialogues with Madwomen,” “Pi,” “Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson,” and the Jean-Luc Godard film “Contempt.”
If the current series is successful, another one will be planned for the summer.
