Nerds vs Evil-ish in The Concessionaires Must Die!

By Chris Gore | April 16, 2018

The Concessionaires Must Die! is a comedy that salutes great film, historic theaters, comic book culture, and all things nerdy. Executive Produced by living legend and comic book godfather Stan Lee, the film debuts on digital and cable VOD platforms on April 17th and on DVD later this spring. Stan Lee also makes a trademark cameo appearance as a Silver Age comic book-collecting grandfather

On the brink of shutdown of their beloved single-screen independent movie theater, The Monarch, a misfit band of theater employees face competition from a nearby megaplex, corporate evil, unemployment and the unthinkable: having to decide what they want to be when and if they ever grow up. Scott (David Blue) is the first among equals in a group of movie- loving misfits that includes jaded and frequently intoxicated former child star Ashley (Talia Tabin), shy guy wingman RJ (Cosby Siringi), semi-clairvoyant projectionist Jon Dorn (John M. Keating), and embittered owner Gabby (Zakareth Ruben). They all adore the theater, despite slow ticket sales and impossibly difficult patrons, and must band together to save it. What starts as an homage to comic books and classic movies takes the crew of The Monarch on their own hero’s journey.

The Concessionaires Must Die! asks the question “What do I want to be when I grow up?” when the answer is “not grown up.”
