The Picture House will host an advance screening of "Auggie "(81 mins. NR) starring award-winning television and film actor Richard Kind (Inside Out, A Serious Man, Mad About You) on Wednesday, September 18th at 7:30 p.m.
At his “early retirement” party, Felix Greystone (Kind) is given a pre-release version of an Auggie, a pair of augmented reality smart glasses that project a perfectly human companion onto his world. When Felix’s wife Anne gets a promotion and his daughter Grace gets serious with her boyfriend, Felix suddenly feels very alone. He opens up to his new companion, Auggie, and is recognized and appreciated by her. He feels the ache of loneliness dissipate. Auggie reawakens a passion in Felix, and to his own surprise, he begins to fall for her. In a world that feels too good to be true, it’s difficult for Felix to recognize his increasing addiction to the technology, losing sight of what truly matters.
"Auggie" has been screened at film festivals around the country and was named the Official Selection at a number of them including the Greenwich International Film Festival and the Beverly Hills Film Festival. The movie will premiere exclusively in Westchester at The Picture House five days prior of its national theatrical release on September 20th.
Tickets to the advance screening are $15/general admission, $12/students, seniors, and members and are available at www.thepicturehouse.org or at the box office,
