Hollywood Theater Gets Independent With ‘Depression: The Movie’ and ‘Eddie Presley’


Indie film lovers will have a field day on Dec. 7th when they visit the Hollywood Theater for an evening of outside cinema.

First, it’s the Pittsburgh premiere of Depression: The Movie, the offbeat comedy from indie auteur Henrique Couto. Written and directed by Couto, the film is an an experiment in dark humor that features the talents of musicians Moriah Yux (Jasper the Colossal) and Corey Montgomery (Sleep Fleet), as well as comedian Mike Canestaro and filmmaker Dave Neely.

The Hollywood will also offer a rare screening of director Jeff Burr‘s 1992 cult favorite, Eddie Presley. Starring Bruce Campbell and a then unknown Quentin Tarantino, the drama follows a down-on-his-luck ex-Elvis impersonator (Duane Whitaker) who attempts a return to the stage after suffering a nervous breakdown.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Depression screens at 8 p.m. and will be followed by a Q&A with Couto. Eddie Presely starts around 9:45 p.m. Admission is $10 for both films.
