“As You Are” Opens Today @ the Spectrum 8 Theatres
Back to where it all began…
“As You Are,” the dramatic coming of age movie directed and co-written by Albany native Miles Joris-Peyrafitte and filmed around Greater Nippertown, is having its Albany premiere today Friday (March 3) at the Landmark Spectrum 8 Theatres.
The Special Jury Award-winning film of the 2016 Sundance Film Festival – starring Owen Campbell (“Boardwalk Empire”), Charlie Heaton (“Stranger Things”) and Amandla Stenberg (“The Hunger Games”) – opens its week-long run today with a special 7pm benefit screening for Youth FX, the teen filmmaking program that helped during the Albany shoot.
Joris-Peyrafitte, co-writer Madison Harrison and producer Joseph Mastantuono (all Albany natives) will be joined by cast members Mary Stuart Masterson (“Benny & Joon,” “Fried Green Tomatoes,” “Some Kind of Wonderful”) and Owen Campbell (“The Americans,” “Boardwalk Empire”) for a Q&A session following the benefit screening.
