One Response to ““Behind the Orange Curtain” to Be Screened at Port Theater on Tuesday”
April 8th, 2013
Wow, I checked out the website. This Film looks like a must see for every parent.
A Corona del Mar High School family has arranged for a special screening of “Behind the Orange Curtain” at 7 p.m. Tuesday April 9.
The film, which examines prescription drug abuse in Orange County, won best documentary feature at the Metropolitan Film Festival of New York City last year, and was a Newport Beach Film Festival official selection of 2012, according to the film’s website.
“You may already be aware of the Orange County prescription drug epidemic that is causing us to lose young people every month from drug overdoses,” a PTA email said. “Awareness and information is key to protecting our children from making that potentially fatal one bad choice.”
Parents are encouraged to attend the film, as well as students, organizers said.
The theater, which seats 200 people, is located at 2905 East Coast Highway. The concession stand will be open during the screening.
“This film’s goal is to open our eyes, all of our eyes to the tragedies occurring every day – here in Orange County and throughout the United States,” the film’s website states.
The Corona del Mar High School Human Relations Council hosted a screening of the film earlier this year.
