Event Description
Tales of Poe (2014)

The Hollywood Theater will host a special one-night only
screening of the independent film Tales of Poe on October 10, 2014. Doors will open at 7 PM with screening at 7:30 PM. Admission is $8 for adults and $6 for seniors and students with ID.

This will be the first theatrical screening of Tales of Poe on the East Coast. The world premiere of the film was held at Grauman’s Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, CA in August 2014. Based on the classic works of Edgar Allan Poe, directors Bart Mastronardi and Alan Rowe Kelly have assembled an award-winning cast and crew in Tales of Poe. A unique new spin on three of Poe’s popular stories (The Tell Tale Heart, The Cask of Amontillado and Dreams), Mastronadi and Kelly weave together a compelling and suspenseful anthology that will captivate Poe enthusiasts and horror fans alike.

The anthology boasts a cast of genre greats that includes Adrienne King, Amy Steel, Caroline Williams, Debbie Rochon, Lesleh Donaldson, Randy Jones, Desiree Gould, Brewster McCall, Alan Rowe Kelly, Bette Cassatt
and Cartier Williams. The film was written by Kelly, Mastronardi and former Pittsburgh resident Michael Varrati. Director Alan Rowe Kelly, along with actress Bette Cassatt co-executive producers Amy Lynn Best and Mike Watt (both of whom appear in the film segment The Tell Tale Heart), will be on hand to meet and greet fans before the screening. There will be a brief Q&A session following the film. Tales of Poe represents true independent filmmaking. Following three years of production, the producers have
assembled a dream cast, designed sets and costumes, and adapted their screenplays from a master storyteller. With financial support coming mainly through crowd funding campaigns, the filmmakers were able to maintain the film's artistic integrity and complete it on their own terms and agreements.

The film has won numerous festival awards, including:
 Best of Festival/Special award at the 2013 Hot Springs Horror Film Festival (The Tell Tale Heart)
 Best Actress (Rochon), Best Actor (Kelly) and Audience Choice (The Tell Tale Heart) at the 2012 Macabre
Faire Horror Film Festival in Long Island, NY
 Best Actress (Rochon), Best Cinematography (Dominick Sivilli), Best Director (Mastro
