One Night Only Theatrical Interactive Event!
Glee star, Chris Colfer’s film debut, Struck by Lightning, is coming to West End Cinema for one night only. This special theatrical event will be hosted by cinemas across the country Sunday, January 6th, the same night as the film’s red carpet premiere. Fans all over the U.S. will be virtually united and given the unique chance to see the high school comedy in theaters before its January 11th release date. Colfer will participate remotely from the LA premiere for a live and interactive webcast Q&A at the conclusion of the film. Viewers will have the opportunity to ask questions via social media.
High school senior Carson Phillips (Chris Colfer) was destined for bigger things than his close-minded small town could ever offer. He was on a path to greatness, but destiny had a different plan when he was suddenly killed by a bolt of lightning in his school parking lot. Demonstrating that life is what happens while you’re busy planning your future, Carson recounts the last few weeks of his life via witty, insightful flashbacks, including a blackmail scheme targeting the popular kids in school that he concocts with his best friend (Rebel Wilson, BRIDESMAIDS), and a home life that includes a mother (Allison Janney, JUNO, “The West Wing”) who’s more interested in the bottle than her son’s future and an estranged father (Dermot Mulroney, MY BEST FRIEND’S WEDDING) who suddenly appears with a pregnant fiancée (Christina Hendricks, “Mad Men”).
