It is really exciting to see the growing interest in Michigan films. As evidenced by ticket sales and record theater attendance (not everyone who attends a screening buys tickets online), the trend is growing. Michigan producers are creating films that Michigan people are going to see. In increasing numbers.
Nate Thompson and his cast of the horror thriller “Soul Reaper” filled the River Raisin Center for the Arts Saturday night, August 20, 2022. A night of horror entertainment included a fire-breather. This is well ahead of Halloween when horror movies are normally released.
As he said in a Facebook post Sunday morning, “This is WILD!
Even through a wild thunderstorm, the city still showed up and absolutely PACKED the theatre once again for our Horror Film Premiere, “The Soul Reaper”.
I’m so incredibly grateful to be able to throw these events and have an awesome team by my side to do this.
It is always exciting to premiere a new movie. But it is doubly so when the movie opens to a full house. And Monroe residents and movie fans showed up en masse to support Nate Thompson and his cast and crew.
Nate Thompson is a director and editor from Monroe, Michigan. He is known for Small-Town Michigan: The Story of Monroe (2022), Cult Affairs (2021), and The Cult Leader (2021). Nate presently lives in Toledo.
