CONVENIENCE-STORE LOVEFEST

Loeb

Filmmaker Kevin Smith will meet with fans at his Broad Street comic-book salon Monday afternoon, and singer Lisa Loeb will join him at an outdoor screening of his breakthrough film “Clerks” in Marine Park Tuesday night.

Ava Gacser of Gannett News Service has an interview with Loeb in today’s Asbury Park Press. In addition to serving as host of a series of outdoor screenings around the U.S., Loeb is flogging a new greatest-hits album and a reality-TV show about her search for a man who will love or, alternately, impregnate her.

Larry Higgs of the Press has a separate item on Smith’s plans to meet with interested parties at his store, Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, Monday at 2p.

The Press says 2,000 people are expected at the free Marine Park event, which begins at 7p with an audience Q&A with Smith, followed by the screening at 8:30. No crowd-size estimate is given for the store event.

‘CLERKS’ ON THE RIVER

Movie

Filmmaker Kevin Smith’s breakthrough 1994 film ‘Clerks’ will be screened at Marine Park on Aug. 8, the Asbury Park Press reports today. The event is free and open to the public.

Smith, a borough native who owns Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash comic book and novelty-items store on Broad Street, will take questions from the audience beforehand.

Larry Higgs of the Press reports that the film is part of a program called “Rolling Roadshow,” in which famous films are screened in the places where they were set. The program producer’s first choice was to screen ‘Clerks’ at the convenience store where it was shot, in the Leonardo section of Middletown, preceded by a street hockey match. But the store is close to a residential neighborhood, and township officials turned down the request for permits because of concerns about noise.

The Press reports that

[Red Bank] Borough Council members gave their approval for the showing on Monday night, provided that the festival pays for police protection and cleanup and takes steps to prevent anyone under 17 from getting into the R-rated film.

The Press also says about 2,000 people are expected to turn out for the event.
