The coming-of-age 80s comedy ‘Pitching Tents” by indie production company Meritage Pictures (“Take Me Home,” “Not Since You” is coming to the Paramount Hudson Valley on May 26th, 2017. Set in Oil City, Pennsylvania in 1984, the movie, starring Michael Grant (“The Secret Life of the American Teenager”) comedian Jim Norton (Inside Amy Schumer,””Louie”), Booboo Stewart (Descendants,” ‘Twilight Saga”), Eric Allan Kramer (“Good Luck Charlie”), Jonathan Lipnicki (“Jerry Maguire”) and newcomer model Samantha Basalari will make its Hudson Valley premiere at the Paramount Hudson Valley in Peekskill, NY on May 26th. “Pitching Tents” finds high school senior Danny Whitaker (Grant) at a crossroads- will he do his working-class father (Kramer) thinks is practical and take a job at the local metal factory, or will his “loose cannon” guidance counselor (Norton) convince him to enroll in college to save his own job. To escape reality, Danny and his band of misfit buddies (Stewart, Lipnicki) head to the woods for the town’s annual rite-of-passage fishing trip. It’s after a wild party that Danny stumbles upon Goddess Camp, the urban legend of “skinny-dipping chicks” that so many horny high-school boys have fantasized about for years. Here he meets Alison (Basalari), who helps him find the strength he needs to take charge of his own destiny. From Meritage Pictures, “Pitching Tents” is directed by Connecticut based Jacob Cooney  (Blue Line,” “House Rules”) from a script by Jayme Petrille and Rob Fox. Utilizing a cast and crew from both  Connecticut and New York, “Pitching Tents” is truly an independent film with homegrown heart.
