Dave Franco’s directorial debut is just on the horizon, and California residents now have a chance to catch the film more than a month before its official release.
The Rental is a horror film, which was written by Franco (Now You See Me, The Disaster Artist) and Joe Swanberg (You’re Next). It follows the story of two brothers, portrayed by Dan Stevens (Legion) and Jeremy Allen White (Shameless), who rent a house by the sea for a weekend getaway with their partners, respectively played by Alison Brie (GLOW) and Sheila Vand (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night). What was meant to be a perfect vacation turns into a nightmare as secrets between the friends are revealed and the group begins to suspect that they’re not alone in the rental house.
As exclusively revealed by Variety, ArcLight Cinemas has teamed up with IFC Films for a special pop-up premiere of The Rental on Thursday, June 18 at 8:30 p.m. at the Vineland Drive-In, which is located just outside of L.A. in the City of Industry. Dave Franco will be on-site for a Q&A that will begin once the credits roll.
All four of the drive-in theater’s screens will be showing the film, and although Vineland’s snack bar will be closed, ArcLight employees will be serving complimentary caramel corn and regular popcorn.
The price of admission is $55 per carload, and tickets are on sale now.
The Rental premieres nationwide in select theaters, drive-ins, and on demand on July 24. And in case you missed it, an official teaser trailer was released today!
