The Balcony Theater

When a director invites you to a private viewing of his latest feature length movie, you don't turn him down. Especially when this screening takes place at The Balcony Theater where they are known to serve the finest of concessions including....
We did indeed eat and drink all of the above over the course of the day. It began with a spicy bloody mary and a bag of popcorn.

Balcony Theater beginning to make a little more sense?! My friends Marc and Lisa set up some comfy lounge chairs, tables, and an old TV on their second story porch. 
Another shot because I added fresh dill relish.


And now for our feature presentation: Slip & Fall. Directed by our host, Marc Colucci Slip & Fall is a comedy about what happens when a law student breaks the law to pay for law school.
Danny Cuemdumpstier (Sam Cohen) is dealing with an unfortunate turn of events in his life. He has no money left to pay his last semesters tuition and the miserable dean of his law school (Andrew Divoff) (side note - you know him as Mikhail aka "Eye Patch Man" from Lost) is unwilling to sign a tuition wavier form necessary for graduation. Danny's boss - the school janitor (William Forsythe) a mastermind behind get-rich-quick scams convinces Danny the only way to solve his looming problems is to stage none other than a "Slip and Fall". Danny wrestles his conscience and comes to the conclusion that there might be no other options if he wants to graduate. The antics which ensue as a result, introducing some bizarre characters, are both hilariously acted and brilliantly directed. Having watched and enjoyed other films directed by Colucci it was a pleasure to view his latest feature length comedy - which included real time Q&A and fun pasta.
