"THE FINAL GOODBYE" Returns For A Second Showing
Let me begin by sending a hearty "thank you" to all Lakewoodites who came to the movie premiere of "THE FINAL GOODBYE" at the Capitol Theater last September 9th. Over 300 people attended which astonished the manager for a Sunday night showing. Our initial article in the LO back in late August spurred excellent attendance for our motion picture, filmed largely in Lakewood with many local actor/residents like James R. Smith, Dennis Runkle, Neil Donnelly, Donn R. Nottage, Dan Fox, etc.
We at Mil-Roy/Velvet Buck/WLFK Productions are proud to announce a second screening of this exciting film-noir thriller at the Atlas Lakeshore Cinema 7 on 22624 Lakeshore Blvd. (Babbitt Rd. & Lakeshore Blvd.) Kindly mark your calendars for Sunday, December 9th at 7:00 pm for another chance to view this much talked about movie that occurs in 1961. Yes, it's is a period piece and we managed to recreate this fine community as it looked way back when!
"THE FINAL GOODBYE" is the story of an aging private eye who finds himself drawn into a web of kidnappings, murder and hidden Nazi treasure in 1961 Cleveland. Filming locations in Lakewood include the Shore Restaurant, Westwood Dry Cleaners, Trio's Bar (now Woodstock), Bellino's Barber Shop, the Waterbury Bar and Restaurant, Hanna/McGorray Funeral Home, Alltronics, the residences of John & Karin Zimmermann and the late John Brinkman, just to name a few.
