Movie Event: Growing Up Smith

Growing up Smith

Our family-friendly film Growing Up Smith is a timely and upbeat film that peeks into the immigrant experience, steeped in nostalgia for a bygone America. This TIME Magazine "Movie Pick of the Week" is set in 1979 as an Indian family moves to America with hopes of living the American Dream. Meanwhile, their 10-year-old Smith awkwardly navigates his new American dreams of first love and fitting in and his family’s traditional Indian ideals. As the NY Times appreciated, “you don’t need to burden it with politics to be touched by its tale of a child who is pulled by two very different cultural worlds.”

This award-winning film has played many film festivals around the USA and will start its nationwide rollout in theaters this month. Growing Up Smith will release Friday, March 24th at the Mariemont Theatre with screenings at 7:10pm & 9:30pm. There will be additional screenings on Saturday, March 25th at 12:10pm & 2:30pm. 

There will be a Q&A with actor/producer/writer (Smith's father) will follow all four screenings on Friday & Saturday.
