Film Festival provides free showing of “Man in the Chair” on Feb. 17

FALLBROOK – After an extremely successful first film screening, the Fallbrook International Film Festival will present its next screening at Fallbrook Library on Sunday, Feb. 17, at 5 p.m. in the large community room with “Man in the Chair,” winner of the 2010 Frank Capra Award. The film was written and directed by Michael Schroeder.

Shirley Duke, film submittal coordinator for the festival said, “We had a packed turnout at our first screening and look forward to doing it again.”

The film shows Christopher Plummer as an ornery old Hollywood gaffer who is the last surviving crew member of Orson Welles’ masterpiece, “Citizen Kane.” Plummer is hounded by an obsessive teenage movie geek wanting his help in producing a student film. The film also starts Robert Wagner and M. Emmet Walsh.

Schroeder said he will “try his best” to be present for a question and answer session afterward.

The film screening is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. Run time is 107 minutes and the film contains mature subjects/language.
