"'Get A Job' is finally headed to market!" said the film's writer and director, Brian Kohne, a Maui native and Baldwin High School graduate. "We've won awards, raised 'plenny' money for charity, and now it's time for Hawai'i and the world to experience the movie the Honolulu Star-Advertiser calls 'Undeniably Funny.'"
Local stars include Willie K, Eric Gilliom, Augie T, Jake Shimabukuro, Carolyn Oming, Kathy Collins, Henry Kapono, Amy Hanaiali'i, Mick Fleetwood and many more, and is produced by Maui resident Stefan Schaefer.
The hilarious award-winning independent movie will kickoff its statewide theatrical run in Wailuku's 'Iao Theater on Labor Day weekend, with 17 total screenings over two weekends--Friday, Aug. 31, at 5 and 7 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 1 and 2, at 1, 3, 5 and 7 p.m.; "First" Friday, Sept. 7 at 5, 7 and 9 p.m.; and Saturday, Sept. 8, at 1, 3, 5 and 7 p.m. (Be advised the 7 p.m. screenings will likely sell out.)
Get A Job has only screened on Maui once in the past year-and-a-half. The final cut will be shown for the first time in public at ‘Iao Theater in Wailuku over Labor Day weekend.
