Sorry if you already booked a hotel in Atlanta or scenic Evansville, Ind. — two of the closest cities this weekend that will be showing the long-awaited, Kickstarter-boosted film version of the cult favorite TV series Veronica Mars. The movie opens Friday at 270 AMC Theatres, which leaves Nashville out of luck.
Or is it? Minutes ago, The Belcourt announced that due to popular demand, it will give the movie a one-week run starting Friday, March 28 — meaning that if you can wait just two weeks, you won't have to drive 173 miles this weekend to Benton, Ill. Here's the synopsis from the theater website:
Veronica Mars has put Neptune and her amateur sleuthing days behind her on the eve of graduating law school. While interviewing at high-end law firms, Veronica gets a call from her ex-boyfriend Logan who has been accused of murder. Veronica heads back to Neptune just to help Logan find an attorney, but when things don’t seem right with how Logan’s case is perceived and handled, Veronica finds herself being pulled back into a life she thought she had left behind.
