After a successful exclusive run in Manhattan, the independent feature film Astoria is opening Friday in the neighborhood for which it was named.
The movie, borough filmmaker Nick Efteriades take on the dreams and struggles of Greek Americans in Astoria, is slated to make its borough debut at the UA Kaufman Astoria 14 at 35th Avenue and 38th Street.
Were really excited to finally bring it to Astoria, Efteriades said. Its great to be in the heart of what the movies about.
In the first weekend of its two-week run at Village East Cinemas, Astoria ranked first in the city and second nationwide among films with exclusive one-theater engagements.
The Manhattan run ends Thursday, one day before the Astoria opening.
