The Royal Starr Arts Institute, a non-profit arts organization, is hosting its fifth annual Royal Starr Film Festival, an international movie gala traditionally based in downtown Royal Oak. With theatres temporarily closed, the festival has partnered with Emagine Entertainment to host Weekly “Drive-In Nights” at Emagine in Novi. This Thursday September 17th, audiences will be treated to a special screening of select Michigan made shorts, followed by the Michigan feature film, Road Runner, A 70’s crime drama directed by Jason Allen.
Short films that will be screened are “Something Blue”, “Autolysis”, “Bruised Fruit”, and “Verso”. As well as a bonus short film from California, Peter Pan, a gritty, live-action modern retelling of the story about the boy who wouldn’t grow up. Trailers and descriptions can be found on the Royal Starr website. Music made by local Michigan artists will be played before the screening. Tickets must be preordered online. No Cash or credit cards will be accepted. You can find tickets to all the drive-in nights at royalstarr.org
