Historic shows ‘Historic’

If you are in the mood to laugh and want to watch a film done in the same genre as the television sit-coms “Parks and Rec” and “The Office,” then catch “The Historic” on Sunday.

“The Historic” is a funny, snarky “mockumentary” about a group of teenagers working at the Historic Everett Theatre.

The storyline has the downtown Everett theater on the brink of being sold when a former worker-turned-famous Hollywood filmmaker wants to premiere his new flick there.

Now, theater manager Scott and the teenagers have two months to keep the doors open. Meanwhile, this motley crew has to figure out how not to strangle each other.

The film was created in that interview style made popular in “Parks and Rec” and “The Office” with actors talking bluntly and candidly to the camera, oblivious that their sometimes inflammatory comments are being filmed.

“The Historic” was created by promising young writer and director Nicholas “Nick” Terry, who at 18 is making films that are gathering notice.

While at Mountlake Terrace High School, Terry wrote, directed and created “Senior Prom,” which captures the absurdity of high school relationships. The film premiered last year at the Seattle International Film Festival to a full house and warm reviews.

“The Historic” will screen at 7 p.m. Sunday at Historic Everett Theatre, 2911 Colby Ave., Everett.

Though admission is free, donations are being accepted to help the theater.

Though unrated, the film should be considered PG for adult themes and subject matter.
