ABOUT SCREEN DOOR

A group of movie and theatre enthusiasts intent on combining the two mediums in innovative and interesting ways.

Live Movies use a combination of video, theater, and music performance to deconstruct movies into their composite visual and aural parts -- action sequences, close-ups, cuts between frames, musical score, voiceover, dialogue, sound effects, etc.-- and then put the pieces together before the audience, live.

The result is a fun, dynamic moviegoing experience that cannot be replicated on a small screen at home.

I AM A ROCKET SCIENTIST is a sci-fi musical about space travel and a love triangle. Our protagonist, BOB, has feelings for CHLOE, another rocket scientist who’s always wanted to see the stars. When their company (headed by hot shot rocket scientist turned corporate dreamer CHIP) announces a mission to a far away solar system in search of new water sources, Chloe dreams she could be the scientist chosen to go, while Bob dreads being chosen as it means facing a life without Chloe. Meanwhile, Chip has plans all his own, and they involve Chloe, deception, and some pretty expensive beer… What will win out in the end – love, money, or the spirit of intrepid exploration?
