Original Screenplay "THE CLUB"

Sunday, September 28, 2008

Synopsis

  • Genre: Suspense/Ghost Story/Romance (Sixth Sense or The Others)
  • Logline: At a Philadelphia Private Club, two people become embroiled in a long ago mystery, after discovering a stained glass window gateway between the living and the dead.
  • Plot: Lila, a young African American woman, comes to work at a private club where 100-year old traditions meet the 21st Century. She and Adrian, a member who resides at the Club, discover a long forgotten room, once a meeting place for a secret society. Their fascination with the room leads them to releasing a troubled spirit trapped in the hellish realm of the room's stained glass window.
  • Backdrop: The Club itself is a lead character in the movie. This is where Center City well-to-do and near well-to-do recreate. They play squash and other racket sports dating back to the 1600's. This is a place to escape from life for a little while, relax in a big, red leather chair and a smoke a cigar in front of the fireplace. There are lavish parties and daily lunch and evening bar crowds. However, at the same time, the Club has seen better days. Upon closer inspection, much of the interior is shabby and showing signs of wear and age. Its vast and stately 5 floors of rooms, passageways and backstair cases, lend an eerie and ghostly atmosphere. Adding to this quality are the eccentric lodgers, members who reside full-time at the Club.
  • Themes of the Movie: Religious conflict, where does spirituality end and the supernatural begin. Longing for a time gone by. And a non-traditional romantic triangle.
  • Main Characters:
Lila Lewis - early 30's African American, attractive, stylish, polite and a little passive. Her traditional Christian upbringing conflicts with her fascination with the occult and the spirit world. She also loves old movies of which the Club represents for her.

Adrian - early 30's Asian, gay and idle. From a "good" family with very traditional values. He drags his feet in completing his Masters degree, as to avoid going home and facing an arranged marriage.

Pitman "Rev" Gannon - The Ghost/Spirit released from the stained glass window. He is a mixture of malcontent, mischief maker and desperate soul, both as the young man he once was and as a damned entity.

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

Why don't we pay on a scale?

A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
