The phone at Valley Cinemas has been ringing off the hook with people asking about the movie ‘A Quiet Place’. Movie fans lined the streets back in October to get a glimpse of how the movie was being produced and some even got to meet the cast. Valley Cinemas Owner Chris Anderson believes the interest in the movie locally is going to make this premiere the biggest one in this theater’s history.

"Mainly because it was shot here in Little Falls and the community reached out to see the movie being filmed. It was a lot of hype back in October when it was being filmed. I mean thousands of people from all over came you know to see the actors, to see you know how a movie was filmed. You don’t really get to get behind the scenes of a film like this."

Gary Bowman owns 'That Little Place' on Main. It’s a small café’ where the crew and even the main characters came to eat. Although Gary isn’t a big movie-goer, he does plan on seeing this film.

"You know you kind of feel part of it. Whether you were in it. Whether you went up there to look at the props, you looked at the set-up or the street. It was on your street. It was in your town. It was in your City, so you kind of automatically feel kind of part of it, so I guess you kind of… you want to go see it. You want to see it all the way through."

Christine Volo came early to get tickets for the showing. She’s purchased a number of tickets and she wasn’t shy about telling us why.

"Maybe because it was partially made here in Little Falls. Yes, yes. Of course. Plus we love Chris. We want to keep him in business."

Devan Durkee came to work early to prepare for a busy day. He’s the manager at Valley Cinemas in Little Falls. You see Devan gets to see the movie before it premieres.

"We’re allowed to prescreen the movie at least one day in advance to make sure that the film runs from front to back with no hick-ups."

But don’t expect Devan to give away any movie secrets. He’s watched thousands of movies and was able to tell us this about ‘A Quiet Place’.

"A Quiet Place…I honestly have no words for it as awkward as that may seem. In its own right, I honestly think it’s a masterpiece. I don’t say that a lot about movies, so with this one, it’s definitely the exception."

Little Falls Mayor Mark Blask also got to see the movie in New York. He attended a red carpet showing with the cast. Without giving away too much, he tells us why people will enjoy this movie.

"Because it’s certainly a thriller. It’s incredibly scary. It’s so well done, but at the end of the day it really is a family movie. Once you see it, down here in Little Falls hopefully this weekend, you’ll see what I mean."
