Westmont Alumnus Bringing New Movie to Santa Barbara

Proceeds from the screening of Calvin Marshall will support the college's baseball program

Calvin Marshall, a movie written and directed by Westmont College alumnus Gary Lundgren, class of 1993, will premiere in Santa Barbara at 7:30 p.m. Sunday in the Riviera Theater, 2044 Alameda Padre Serra.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online. Click here to order.

Proceeds from the screening will support Westmont baseball. Gary and Anne (Malmberg) Lundgren, class of 1995, also an alum and who produced the movie, will be at the screening for a question-and-answer session after the film.

Calvin Marshall is about a college student whose childhood dream of playing Major League Baseball seems to be in serious jeopardy when he can’t make the Bayford Bisons Junior College team. The cast includes Steve Zahn, Diedrich Bader, Alex Frost and Michelle Lombardo.

The film is rated R for language.

The movie credits include Ryan Malmberg, class of 1998, production designer and composer John Askew, son of professor emeritus Tony and Barbara Askew, and musicians Andy White, class of 1996, Gabe Friley of 1996, Dana Hester Friley of 1996, Tad Wagner of 1994, Jessica Peters-Malmberg of 1998, Erik Herzog of 1991, and Bruce Winter, son of David K. Winter, Westmont president emeritus.

Calvin Marshall has been playing the festival circuit to rave reviews since October and will have a small theatrical release this summer. The movie premiered at the Austin Film Festival in October. Last week it was named a finalist for Best Feature and Best Acting Ensemble at the Ashland Independent Film Festival.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
