[Press release from Cleveland Cinemas.]
Continuing not only its commitment of presenting the most interesting films to Cleveland but also of providing audiences rare, direct access to the key talent from these works, the Cedar Lee Theatre (2163 Lee Rd., Cleveland Hts.) will be hosting a live via Skype Q&A with ADAM SCOTT, star of the new comedy THE OVERNIGHT. The Q&A will take place following the 7:15 PM showing at the Cedar Lee on Friday, July 3rd.
In THE OVERNIGHT Alex (Adam Scott), Emily (Taylor Schilling), and their son, RJ, have recently moved to Los Angeles's Eastside from Seattle. Feeling lost in a new city, they are desperate to find their first new friends. After a chance meeting with Kurt (Jason Schwartzman) at the neighborhood park, they gladly agree to join family pizza night at his home. But as it gets later and the kids go to bed, the family "playdate" becomes increasingly more revealing as the couples begin to open up.
Writer/director Patrick Brice’s second feature is a painfully funny take on thirty-something sexual frustration and parenthood. Featuring memorable lead performances by Taylor Schilling, Adam Scott, Jason Schwartzman, and Judith Godrèche, each actor nimbly balances the script’s sudden emotional turns from surprising honesty to complete embarrassment. Produced by Gettin' Rad and the Duplass Brothers, THE OVERNIGHT tells a complex story of universal inadequacies.
Praised by critics as “an unpredictably weird and delightful sex comedy” (Variety) “with a quartet of playfully scrappy actors who couldn't be better suited to their roles” (Rolling Stone), THE OVERNIGHT is the year’s boldest comedy and will open at both the Cedar Lee Theatre and Capitol Theatre (1390 W. 65th St., Cleveland) starting Friday, July 3rd.
Tickets to see THE OVERNIGHT are $9.50 for adults, $6.50 for seniors 60 and over after 6:00 PM. Matinee tickets for shows before 6:00 PM are $6.75 Friday through Sunday and $6.00 Monday through Thursday. Show times can be found at clevelandcinemas.com. (Please note that only the 7:15 PM showing on July 3rd at the Cedar Lee Theatre will feature the Q&A with Adam Scott.)

About Adam Scott
Adam Scott has crafted a truly diverse and distinguished career.

He also starred in the Starz original series "Party Down,” which has since gained a cult following. Scott produced it alongside Executive Producers Paul Rudd, Rob Thomas, Dan Etheridge and John Enbom.
On the big screen, Scott will next star in Hot Tub Time Machine 2, set for release this February. He will also be seen in Black Mass opposite Johnny Depp and Sleeping with Other People, a romantic comedy that also stars Jason Sudeikis, Alison Brie and Amanda Peet, which will also premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Scott received critical acclaim for his work in The Vicious Kind, earning a nomination for Best Actor at the Independent Spirit Awards in 2010. He won Best Performance at the 2009 Sidewalk Film Festival and Best Actor at the 2009 Strasbourg Film Festival.
