'Mr. Brooks' gets local screening May 30

There will be an invitation-only preview screening of “Mr. Brooks” on May 30. The location is still up in air, but they plan to start it at 7 p.m.

“Mr. Brooks” was made in Shreveport during the summer of 2006. It stars Kevin Costner, William Hurt, Demi Moore and Dane Cook. The movie premieres nationally June 1.

The preview screening is being organized by the Robinson Film Center, the Shreveport Mayor’s office and MGM studios.

No stars are expected to attend the screening. Local crew, cast and extras will be invited.

“We’re looking to just show a sign of appreciation for the people who worked on it,” said Chris Jay of the Robinson Film Center.

Theater folks at LSUS may construct a set replica and install it in theater lobby (where is TBD), but details have not been confirmed.

WHAT: “Mr. Brooks” special advanced screening.
WHEN: 7 p.m. May 30 (“Mr. Brooks” premieres nationally June 1).
WHERE: the location is TBD as of May 16.
INFO: call the Film Center at (318) 424-9090 for location information.

Jennifer LaPierre sent me this note about LSUS's participation in the screening: "The movie crew donated the entire bedroom set to LSUS and also some 30 pieces of pottery. We plan to set those items up in the lobby for auction, including recreating the bedroom scene. ALL proceeds would benefit the LSUS Theatre Department."
