pic1We’re excited to announce that Mitchell Lyon’s THE CHAUFFEUR will screen at this year’s PLFF!¬† Here’s some info on the film:


Phil needs help. He just failed his driving test for the 13th time, and how will he ever make friends when he can’t drive a car? Phil notices a vague advertisement offering “help for something”, and follows it to the stately home of an eccentric scientist named Dr. Thoreau. With the “help” of Dr. Thoreau, Phil embarks on a journey to create a monstrous Frankenstein-like personal¬†chauffeur, discovering unexpected friendship and somewhat-expected danger in the process.

The Chauffeur was shot on location in Lincoln, Nebraska. Dr. Thoreau’s mansion is located in the historic Near South neighborhood on the corner of 11th and D Street and the gas station from the final scene is the iconic Emerald Mini Mart located on West O Street. The Chauffeur was produced by Fortunate Pictures, which is located in Aurora, Nebraska, and The Colonel Mustard Amateur Attic Theatre Company out of Lincoln. The Colonel Mustard is known for its outdoor musicals which can be seen for free every summer in Lincoln’s Near South neighborhood.

This is just one of many fantastic films screening this October at Prairie Lights! Order your Weekend Pass for the low price of $10.00 to see this film and a ton of other great flicks!
