Circle Drive-In To Host Double Feature Event

The Circle Drive-In is partnering with Independent Filmmakers to show their movies on the largest screen in NEPA this Friday evening for an exclusive one-night-only screening of “Turbo Cola” & “Hell House, LLC”.  In addition to coming out to this double feature event, attendees will also get the chance to “Meet & Greet” some of the film’s production team & stars, including “Turbo Cola” Producer, Brandon Keeton, starting at 6:00 pm. 

“Turbo Cola”, the recent Best Director and Best Picture winner at the Red Rose film Festival in Lancaster, will begin at 7:00 pm. “Turbo Cola” tells the story of  Austin Morris who is foregoing the biggest party of the year to work overtime at the Quality Mart, much to the chagrin of his new girlfriend, Mary Jane. What his friends don’t know, however, is that his true plan is the rob the store’s ATM with his stoner side-kick, SWEARSKY, so that he can be with the girl of his dreams.   This New Year’s Eve…1999…will change everything.

Directly following “Turbo Cola” the screening of 2015’s “Hell House, LLC”, a film written and directed by Scranton native, Stephen Cognetti, will begin.  “Hell House, LLC” takes place five years after an unexplained malfunction causes the death of 15 tour-goers and staff on the opening night of a Halloween haunted house tour, a documentary crew travels back to the scene of the tragedy to find out what really happened.
