Cinemania Hometown Screening: 3rd Down & Forever
Five Points Theatre
Join us as we celebrate the premiere of
resident Jason Tetlak's feature film, 3rd Down & Forever. Tetlak, an art teacher and avid football fan, wondered if the average American male could make an NFL team. So he declared himself an NFL prospect, brought along a documentary filmmaking crew and set out on a seemingly impossible quest. Tetlak's film is a lighthearted peek into the serious business of professional athletics and features appearances by David Garrard, Jacksonville Ocho Cinco, Joe Flacco, Doug Flutie, Snoop Dogg and P Diddy!
