Before the lights went down inside the theatre (home of Stomp Out Loud), the film’s director Jon Avnet came onto the stage and before introducing the film, he addressed the packed audience by praising its star, Al Pacino. Avnet said that the movie got made because of the actor, and called Pacino “a national treasure and a mench.”

After the film was over invited guests trekked over to the nearby Prive nightclub for an after party where there was an open bar, servers offering an array of tasty appetizers, and a chance to mingle with the cast from 88 minutes.
