PRLog - Oct. 2, 2013 - CHICAGO -- Regal Cinemas announced today that coming-of-age family comedy “The Stream,” a unique film benefitting Boys & Girls Clubs of America, will be released theatrically in select theatres across the nation on October 18, 19 & 20, 2013.
“The Stream” was produced by Dreaming Tree Foundation in partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America. The film will directly benefit the charity with over 80% of producer proceeds from the theatrical release and other distribution going directly to BGCA to support their kids & youth education programs. Additionally, nearly 200 kids from Boys & Girls Clubs around the country received the opportunity to work behind the camera or in the editing bay.
BGCA Alum and Advocate Mario Lopez (EXTRA!, X FACTOR), Kelly Rutherford (GOSSIP GIRL), Christopher Gorham (COVERT AFFAIRS) and Rainn Wilson (THE OFFICE, SUPER, SIX FEET UNDER) all play roles in the film. Set in 1981, “The Stream” follows the story of five friends who embark on epic adventure. All they have to do is follow The Stream and back. With Mom gone for three-hours what could possibly go wrong? Encountering bullies, mystical creatures and a nasty storm, the friends will need the force of friendship to prevail.

”I wouldn’t be where I am at today if Boys & Girls Clubs of America was not a part of my life. It’s important for me to give back to an organization that has given me so much. And now families can support the work they do simply by taking their kids to the movies starting October 18, 19 & 20.” stated Mario Lopez.
Dreaming Tree Foundation also introduces a stellar cast of up and coming young actors. Noura Boustany Jost, "Paxton Riley" is an actress, dancer, and singer attending her senior year at the Professional Performing Arts High School in NYC. Sharing the role of "Ernest Terry" with Rainn Wilson, is Jacob M Williams. Jacob M Williams is a film/tv actor and model based in Chicago. Michael Capperella, "Bobby Terry" is an actor, model and hip hop dancer in the New York/Philadelphia area. CJ Diehl, "Chris Wollerman" is a tv/film actor, hip hop dancer, model and voice-over artist currently working in Los Angeles. Sabrina D. Carter, "Lorna Ross" is an aspiring actress that has studied at The Actors Center, The Walnut Street Theatre and Arden Theatre Co. in Philadelphia, PA.
The theatrical release exclusively in Regal Cinemas will be launched by two “blue-carpet premiere events” to celebrate the mission (and colors) of Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Premieres will be at Regal Union Square Stadium 14 (New York) on October 15th and Regal L.A. Live Stadium 14 (Los Angeles) on October 16th with the celebrity actors and BGCA teen-filmmakers in attendance at both events.
Rainn Wilson added, "Just by going to the movies you can make a difference to millions of kids. It’s a unique way to give back and support Boys & Girls Clubs of America and our kids who need it most."
Over 7,000 American teenagers drop-out of school daily resulting in some 1,200,000 students each year that don’t graduate with their class. “The Stream” benefiting Boys & Girls Clubs of America hopes to change that.
Program supporters include presenters AT&T and Taco Bell Foundation for Teens, with additional support from Best Buy, ITW, Exelon, Shure Incorporated and Century 21, all of whom sponsored the film program because of their commitment to America’s youth.
The Stream will be released at the following Regal Cinemas on October 18, 19, & 20:
