Those who have lived in the greater Atlanta region for the past few years have witnessed the city’s emergence as a creative hub for the development of box office film and professional entertainment.
This rise in notoriety and positioning has not only elevated Atlanta’s status with the rest of the country, but it has attracted a tremendous amount of talented professionals who aspire to become the next big thing in pop culture.
Kevin Smith In Atlanta, GA
For anyone who is interested in making a career in the film industry, make sure you check out An Evening With Kevin Smith at The Center Stage Theatre.
The show is set to go on next Wednesday and tickets can be purchased from Front Row Seats either online or over the phone by dialing 404.633.2726.
Kevin Smith is well-known throughout niche audiences for his extensive portfolio of work related to writing, podcasting, comedy, and directing/producing feature films. Clerks, Chasing Amy, and Dogma are all considered to be cult classics that are just as relevant in their perspectives today, as they were back in the 90s.
The creation of Jay and Silent Bob attracted world-wide attention, while Smith’s partnership with several major comic book publishers have positioned him as an icon for those who are a part of the “Comic Con” world.
An Evening with Kevin Smith offers aspiring talent and film buffs the opportunity to learn what it’s like trying to make it in Hollywood, how particular celebrities behave off camera, and the type of cultural impact today’s cinema has on future writers/directors.
This was an excellent opportunity to hear some great background stories on the movies Smith has made over the past two or three decades. He is incredibly talented, smart, funny, and witty. I loved his Q&A session, along with his personal stories on celebrities like Prince and Johnny Depp. If he comes back to the area, I’ll be sure to see him again.

Kevin was nice enough to spend a lot of time talking directly to his audience, giving us the chance to ask whatever we wanted. I think he does a great job of storytelling and he had the whole crowd engaged the entire time.
Favorite Moment: His personal celebrity stories and perspective on the current Presidential election.

I wanted to see Kevin because I am interested in making it in the film industry as a writer. I thought his experiences and stories were extremely meaningful and loved the advice he offered throughout the show. His work extends well past his most popular movies and I love that he has taken a step back to focus on his original passion, writing.
