The historic Music Box Theatre on Southport Avenue will play host to the Red Carpet Premiere of film and television star Armand Assante’s newest film, IN BETWEEN ENGAGEMENTS. A wild, funny romp through the pitfalls of dating, marriage, and romance, In Between Engagements was filmed entirely in Chicago with some interior scenes shot in the surrounding suburbs.

In Between Engagements is ‘Woody Allen meets The Hangover,’ mixing sharp observational comedy with oddball off-the-wall antics. The film follows the trials of four couples, each at a crossroads in their relationship, as they wrestle with insecurities, disenchantment, sibling-rivalry, and that dreaded ‘next step’ – the plunge! One proposal shocks the group of friends and wreaks havoc on the once happy couples – straining friendships, ravaging relationships and destroying Granddaddy’s good china. Add to the mix prostitutes, horse tranquilizers, and a trouble-making eccentric uncle, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for hilarity.

Produced by VISION Studios in Chicago, and written and directed by Dominik Sedlar, In Between Engagements brings together up-and-coming talent straight out of the Chicago theater scene with big-time Hollywood. The Second City Mainstage, FOX Television’s hit show Glee, and HBO’s The Brink are just some of the places you’ll see members of this talented young cast.

Sponsored by Real Russian Vodka, the red carpet event will be hosted by B96’s Showbiz Shelly. Armand Assante will be in attendance and you may even see other celebrities walking the carpet, like Jeff Mauro (Food Network), Ryan Chiaverini (Windy City Live), Jim Peterik (songwriter, Eye Of The Tiger), and more.

The event is open to the public and will take place Tuesday, September 29th with a pre-screening reception at 6:30. Tickets are $12 and include a complementary drink at the reception, a screening of the film, and a Q&A with Assante, writer/director Sedlar, producers and cast.
