Mayor Jim Lienhoop says the city’s architecture plays a supporting role in a film that has a captivating story.

Columbus residents will be rolling out the red carpet this September. A movie that was filmed last summer in the city known for architecture is winning awards and creating a buzz.

The movie is called “Columbus” but Mayor Jim Lienhoop says the city’s architecture just plays a supporting role.

“It holds your attention and you’re interested to see how this plays out. At the same time, the backdrop Columbus, really looks good,” Lienhoop says.

The movie is about a Korean native who finds himself in Columbus, Indiana caring for his dying father. He meets a woman struggling to follow her dreams while tending to her mother.

The movie is nominated for numerous awards and has already picked up accolades in Boston and at the Valletta Film Festival in Malta.

Lienhoop says he saw the film at the Sundance Film Festival this spring.

“We’re hopeful we can have the cast and crew come back and sort of have a little reunion at the same time those of us locally get to see the picture,” Lienhoop says.

That’s September 1 at the YES Cinema in Columbus and Keystone Landmark in Indianapolis.

Two shows have already sold out and several others are almost full at the YES Cinema in Columbus.

Outreach Coordinator Diane Doup says they are thrilled to be hosting the film because the cinema is a non-profit theater. All profits go back to the 30 programs provided by the Lincoln-Central Neighborhood Family Center.
