Authors Anonymous movie debuts in San Luis Obispo April 18

April 1, 2014

The feature film ensemble comedy Authors Anonymous is scheduled to be released theatrically in 12 North American cities, including San Luis Obispo, on Friday, April 18.

The movie, starring Kaley Cuoco, Chris Klein, Teri Polo, and Dennis Farina, will open at the Fremont Theater that Friday, before moving over to the Downtown Centre on Saturday, April 19. A special screening of the movie is scheduled for opening night at 7 p.m., followed by an audience question-and-answer session featuring producer Hal Schwartz, director Ellie Kanner, and screenwriter David Congalton.

Authors Anonymous is also currently available in a special pre-theatrical promotion through Video on Demand, including Charter, Amazon, and iTunes.

Other cities scheduled for the initial theatrical release include New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Seattle, Dallas, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Miami, Tampa, Phoenix, and Washington, D.C.

The film, originally called Scribble, tells the story of a dysfunctional writers critique group in the San Fernando Valley that implodes when one member becomes an overnight success. In the first movie review posted, critic Anne Campbell called Authors Anonymous “the best documentary-styled comedy I’ve seen.”

“We’re just thrilled that the movie gets to play in San Luis Obispo,” said Congalton about his first produced screenplay. “There are so many people around here who have encouraged me over the years not to give up. It’s great to give them the chance to see the final product.”

Congalton and his wife, Associate Producer Charlotte Alexander, will attend the world premiere of Authors Anonymous in Los Angeles on April 9.

Holy hatred! Check out the ‘thumbs down’ on this article. It is astounding how much vitriol oozes through the pores of some county residents. Can’t you have a happy thought or two about a truly impressive accomplishment? OK, thumb me down…

I want to see the movie, judge for myself and give it a 10 for making it to the screen from nowhere.

I plan to see the movie but so far, it only has a 4.8 out of 10 rating on IMDB.

Many try; few succeed. Congratulations, Dave. Keep on typin’

Yes, good luck …!

I especially like the description: “A dysfunctional writers critique group” …a TRIPLE redundancy !

Congratulations, Dave, and good luck with the movie! Hope it is successful for you…
