Halfway to Zen (independent film) | Calendar


The Gesa Power House Theater presents a screening of the independent film “Halfway to Zen” on Friday April 30 at 7:00 PM with a encore screening on Wednesday May 5 at 7:00 PM.

“Halfway to Zen” is a drama about a fractured family that comes together to lift the collective middle finger at the risk that they have each been treated.

After being released from prison, Nick tries to walk straight in taking care of his father, Pop, who has forgotten how ugly he is. When Nick reunites with his 11-year-old daughter Edie (who insists she is now Eddie) and ex-wife Vick (who is engaged to a woman), this motley team of bulletproof misfits must relearn everything she knows about what makes a family.

“Halfway to Zen” was produced by Wonder Wheel Productions, a family-owned independent film company made up of Toby Poser, John Adams and their daughters Lulu and Zelda Adams. The small family creative team takes care of everything: casting, writing, videography, acting, directing, editing and film crew. The family has been making films since 2010, each having full success on the film festival circuit. “Halfway to Zen” is unrated, but contains strong language.

General admission seats ($ 15 adults, $ 10 students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. Each screening will be followed by an exclusive pre-recorded conversation between Director of Film Programming Warren Etheredge and the filmmakers.

The number of seats for each screening is limited to 100 people, as permitted in Phase 2 of Washington’s Safe Start plan. Additional precautions, including the compulsory wearing of a mask and physical distancing between households, will be observed.
