James Franco will appear at Terrace Theater July 29

Franco, my dear, we give a damn

James Franco will be appearing through a video stream at the Terrace on Tues. July 29 after the screening of his latest film Child of God. We know our headline was a cruel trick, but we felt that same disappointment yesterday when we found out Franco’s actual body would not be in the Holy City. (Of course, that could be a good thing for parents of underaged, Instagram-loving teens since they won’t have to worry about the actor sending inappropriate messages to their daughters about meeting in hotel rooms post-screening, even as a publicity stunt.)

The film itself is dark. But since Child of God is adapted from a Cormac McCarthy novel, that shouldn’t be surprising. The plot follows a violent man who lives outside of social order and — from the looks of the trailer — kills a lot of people. Scott Haze, Tim Blake Nelson, and Franco star in the movie. Franco also directed and wrote the screenplay.

Child of God is the latest installment of a new series Paul Brown, owner of the Terrace Theater, has organized, which allows audience members to email questions to that could be answered by stars, producers, or directors of the films if selected. For Child of God, Franco will answer. The Q&A sessions take place after the screening. Last night, Rob Reiner participated during the preview screening of And So It Goes, starring Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton.
