(released 6/5/2022)

Tampa Theatre, Film Tampa Bay, and Showtown American Pictures are proud to welcome fans and friends for a FREE first-look screening of The Beast Comes At Midnight. The screening will take place June 11 at 1p.m. - 4p.m.

Filmed entirely in the Tampa Bay area, Beast is the story of Tuff (Tampa's own Michael McKeever), a teenage outcast, struggling to grow his failing live stream, which centers around his family heritage of sideshows and carnivals. After a series of animal attacks begin making headlines in town, Tuff begins to suspect that the attacks could be the work of something more sinister. When Mary (Madelyn Chimento), one of the most popular girls at school, reveals that she's a long-time fan of Tuff's live stream, the two begin a journey to uncover the truth about the attacks and discover that a real-life werewolf is in their rural Florida town!

The lively new YA thriller from writer/director Christopher Jackson also stars Academy Award-nominee Eric Roberts (Runaway Train) and Michael Paré (Hope Floats, The Virgin Suicides).

Following the screening, The Beast Comes At Midnight writer/director Christopher Jackson and producers Ed McKeever and Todd Oifer will discuss the making of the film and answer audience questions.
