Advanced praise for the film

Town Hall Theater’s mission is to celebrate local talent, so we jumped at the chance to support Tommy Hyde’s vision and Doug Butler’s skill and perseverance. The premiere of Tommy’s film at THT will be a genuine event, a prime example of the rich and varied artistic life of this community.
