If you've ever wanted to see a film before it opens to everyone else, now's your chance.

The Greater Reading Film Commission is looking for people to be part of a test audience for the film, A Convenient Truth, which was shot in Greater Reading.

A Convenient Truth is a feature-length film about a documentary crew that follows California assemblyman, Coleman Burleson, as he presents his plan to cure the climate crisis, energy issues, unemployment, illegal immigration, obesity, our dependence on foreign oil, and more with one unprecedented solution.


The producers of the film want to show the film to an audience with no prior knowledge of the film to get their honest reactions.  

"We did a screening in NYC and are in the process of tweaking [the film] based on that feedback," said writer/director Dominick Bagnato.

The audience members for the Reading screening will be asked to complete the same questionnaire as the New York City audience to determine their reactions and whether issues raised as "problem areas" in the initial screening were satisfactorily addressed.

The test screening will be held Sun., April 14 at 2 p.m., at Reading Movies 11 & IMAX at North 2nd and Washington streets.

Tickets for the screening are free, however, they must be reserved in advance by calling the Reading Movies 11/IMAX Theater at 610-374-6195. No tickets can be reserved online.
