Staten Island filmmakers Joshua Zeman and Barbara Brancaccio turned a local legend into an acclaimed documentary with CROPSEY, which has been chilling audiences at festivals since its premiere at Tribeca last year. Now the movie is heading into nationwide theatrical release—including a screening at its key location.
CROPSEY will begin its big-screen run via Cinema Purgatorio at New York City’s IFC Center (323 6th Avenue), playing June 4-10 and possibly beyond. It’ll also be shown on Saturday, June 5 on the grounds of the abandoned Willowbrook Mental Institution—the site of horrific abuses in the ’60s and early ’70s, and where the titular escaped mental patient supposedly dwelled during Zeman and Brancaccio’s childhood. The film charts their return to Willowbrook to look into the legend, and how it might be connected to the real-life disappearances and deaths of local youths.
The movie has also been set for the following bookings:
• Somerville, MA: Somerville Theatre, June 11-17 (and possibly further)
• Shreveport, LA: Robinson Film Center, June 11-13
• Denver, CO: Denver Film Society, June 25-July 1 (and possibly further)
• Austin, TX: Alamo Drafthouse Ritz, July 5-7
• Los Angeles, California: Downtown Independent, July 9-15 (and possibly further)
Also confirmed, but with dates and theaters to be announced, are Winchester, VA; Tucson, AZ; Bloomfield, NJ, South Burlington, VT; Houston, TX; Philadelphia, PA; New Haven, CT and Albuquerque, New Mexico.
