‘My Tale of Two Cities’ opens in Pittsburgh
“My Tale of Two Cities,” a film by Pittsburgher Carl Kurlander, will begin its theatrical release at the SouthSide Works Cinema from March 19 to 25.
The film kicks off its hometown run with a special screening Friday March 19, 7:30 p.m., to benefit the United Way of Allegheny County, with a guest appearance by Mr. McFeely of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood,” other cast members, and the filmmakers, who will share stories of neighbors giving back to their community as part of the regional “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” Day celebration. Kurlander will also be at the theater Saturday March 20 at the 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. shows to discuss the journey of making this film.
“My Tale of Two Cities” has also been invited to centerpiece the first of its kind event on Capitol Hill at the U.S. Capitol Visitor’s Center on March 23. Following the screening, Newsweek and MSNBC’s Howard Fineman will lead a panel discussion with Pittsburgh Congressman Mike Doyle, D.C. Economic Partnership President Steve Moore, Hall of Fame Steeler and philanthropist Franco Harris, along with Kurlander, to discuss the film’s themes of urban revitalization.
