Last Night At The Circle Cinema

By Emily Franklin

The story of a friendship's end and moving rebirth.

Olivia, Bertucci, and Codman were the trio no one else in high school could quite figure out, an impenetrable triangle of friendship. Now they're graduating and about to start new lives away at college and without one another. Beyond their friendship, there's one thing they have in common: the Circle Cinema, a once-thriving old movie theater now reduced to a boarded up concrete box, condemned and about to be forgotten forever—which is, as far as Olivia and Codman can tell, a lot like what's going to happen to them. So in one last desperate effort to hold on to the secrets they share, Bertucci hatches a plan—an experiment, really. He convinces Olivia and Codman to join him in spending their last night before graduation locked inside the cinema's concrete walls. None of them can open the box before sunrise. Over the course of the night, the trio is then forced to face one another, the events of the past year, and whatever is to come when the new day dawns.
