TWO SCREENINGS: Saturday, March 7 @ 7pm; Sunday, March 8 @ 9pm. In yet another coup for Terry McMahon’s film, PATRICK’S DAY has been selected as the winner of the Manhattan Short Feature Film Project for 2015 and will now screen in 50 cinemas across the United States. The Feature Film Project is a collective of Art House Cinemas across the USA with the focus of taking feature films from the festival circuit and moving them into the cinema circuit. Between March 5 and 8 2015, Patrick’s Day will be screened in 50 cinemas across America. Audiences at each venue will vote on whether the film should return to this cinema for a theatrical release in 2015. If the majority vote “yes” then, if the producers choose, the film will return to that cinema for a series of screenings that year. About the Film: Patrick is a warm, open, twenty-six year old virgin schizophrenic. Pills and his mother’s protection mean he is no threat to himself or anyone else. Until he falls in love. The object of his desire, Karen, a suicidal flight attendant, has no idea the intimacy she shares with Patrick might reintroduce her to living. Patrick’s obsessive mother Maura doesn’t realize her own misguided love may be more dangerous than hate. To pull Karen and Patrick apart, she enlists the help of dysfunctional detective Freeman, who will use his position to help her, for a price. A provocative and heart-breaking love story about the right to intimacy for everyone, Patrick’s Day proves, when it comes to love, we’re all a little crazy.
