Regal Cinemas announced today that coming-of-age family comedy “The Stream,” a unique film benefitting Boys & Girls Clubs of America, will be released theatrically in select theatres across the nation on October 18, 2013.
BGCA Alum and Advocate Mario Lopez (EXTRA!, X FACTOR), Kelly Rutherford (GOSSIP GIRL), Christopher Gorham (COVERT AFFAIRS) and Rainn Wilson (THE OFFICE, SUPER, SIX FEET UNDER) all play roles in the film. Set in 1981, “The Stream” follows the story of five friends who embark on epic adventure. All they have to do is follow The Stream and back. With Mom gone for four-hours what could possibly go wrong? Encountering bullies, mystical creatures and a nasty storm, the friends will need the force of friendship to prevail.
“The Stream” was produced by Dreaming Tree Foundation in partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America. The film will directly benefit the charity with over 80% of producer proceeds from the theatrical release and other distribution going directly to BGCA to support their kids & youth education programs. Additionally, nearly 200 kids from Boys & Girls Clubs around the country received the opportunity to work behind the camera or in the editing bay.
Program partners include presenters AT&T and Taco Bell Foundation for Teens, with additional support from Best Buy, ITW, Exelon, Shure Incorporated and Century 21, all of whom sponsored the film program because of their commitment to America’s youth.
