Catch 'Across the Hall'
Across the Hall, an independent film, will make its national debut in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles in December, but Tri-City movie buffs can catch an even earlier sneak peek when it shows at the Carmike Theaters in Kennewick from Oct. 30 to Nov. 5.
The movie is an expanded version of a 2005 short film, with the same title, directed by Alex Merkin.
The feature-length noir thriller follows a tense stand-off between a young man who finds out his fiancee has checked into a hotel with another man, which sends him into a fit of near-homicidal fury, the film's producer Evan Ferrante told the Herald.
Cloverfield star Mike Vogel stars opposite Brittany Murphy and Danny Pino in Across the Hall, which was penned by Merkin and Jesse Mittelstadt, both of whom wrote the original short film.
Desperate to hear a friendly voice, the Vogel's character calls his best friend and tells him he's in a hotel room across the hall from where his fiancee is shacked up with another guy who he plans to kill.
Showtimes are 1:30 and 7 p.m. Oct. 30 through Nov. 5. Admission is $5 for the special showings.
