From Cleveland For Cleveland

Actor and producer Lili Reinhart (Chemical Hearts and CW’s Riverdale) leads off From Cleveland For Cleveland, a six-part monthly conversation series (July - December) bringing Hollywood talent back to their Ohio roots. The 101- year-old Capitol Theatre on Cleveland’s West side will serve as a fitting venue for this interactive live event, with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit the Greater Cleveland Film Commission.

Other guests include Academy Award nominee Paul Raci (Sound of Metal), screenwriter and director, Mark Waters (Mr. Poppers Penguins and Mean Girls) with his wife, Ohio State and Six Feet Under alumni, actor Dina Spybey-Waters,

Parma’s own Alan Ruck (HBO’s Succession) the venerable Tom Hanks — who got his start in Ohio — and the multi-faceted, Golden Globe-nominated Clevelander Monica Potter (Parenthood) will also take part in the series.

Appearing remotely via the Capitol’s deluxe movie screen, each will share their connection to the Buckeye, career experiences and offer advice, as well as take questions from audience members.

The creators and hosts of the series are this episodes’ guests. They are casting director Angela Boehm, who just wrapped LeBron James’ bio pic Shooting Stars, 1st Team Studio co-owner and instructor, Lauren Nichols and Lakewood native, actor and philanthropist, Holly Fulger. 

All three live in and hail From Ohio!
