Movie filmed at College to make debut at McDonough Center Sept. 21
PerfectMatch, a movie filmed almost entirely on Marietta College’s campus, will make its Ohio premiere at 7 p.m., Friday, Sept. 21, in the Alma McDonough Auditorium.
Admission is free for any Marietta College student with his or her ID at the first showing. The second showing — at 7 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 22 — is for the local community and admission is $10. Seating begins at 6:30 p.m.
A small, independent film crew arrived in Marietta during the summer of 2010, and over a four-week period filmed the majority of PerfectMatch (originally titled “Her Name is Me”).
PerfectMatch involves two lovelorn 20-somethings who discover each other on a popular Internet dating site. However, there’s a twist. Roewert’s character, Stephen, works for the site and actually manipulates the site to create this perfect match. This naturally complicates things.
Following the film, the actors and filmmakers will conduct a Q&A session with the filmgoers.
The movie’s world premiere took place at the Victoria Independent Film Festival in Texas in March. The movie can be found on IMDb and has a Facebook page.
