Coherence’s brilliance comes from forcing the question of whether we truly know what we’re capable of.
Filmink Australia


This low-cost thriller proves that something approaching brilliance is not just a function of budget   —Ft. Worth Star-Telegram

Scrape away the sci-fi trappings and this emerges as a caustic, closely observed drama about some narcissistic California types with obvious tensions in their lives that are only heightened when normal routines are disrupted.   —The Independent (UK)


About the Film

On the night of an astrological anomaly, eight friends at a dinner party experience a troubling chain of reality bending events.  Part cerebral sci-fi and part relationship drama, COHERENCE is a tightly focused, intimately shot film that quickly ratchets up with tension and mystery.

“Run & Jump” is a minor miracle in the way it avoids convention and formula. – Capital New York


“Captures the beauty of an obviously flawed family with remarkable warmth and immediacy.” -Variety


“Alive, full of jolts, unexpected bursts of humor and earned emotion.” Roger Ebert.com


“It is spilling with warmth, humor, color, life.” -The Spectator


Run and Jump is an award-winning indie film, filmed in County Kerry, Ireland. It tells the story of a small-town Irish family in difficult straits, and an uptight visitor from America who rescues both the family and himself. It is a gripping story that is comic, tragic, surprising, and immensely fulfilling. Run and Jump is the first feature of Irish-American director, Stephanie Green.


The screenplay is by Irish author Ailbhe Keogan. It stars Will Forte, known mainly for his 8-year stint on Saturday Night Live, but who turned to dramatic film roles with Run and Jump and Nebraska. Respected British stage and screen actress Maxine Peake co-stars.

Studio-C Cinema has moved its primary screening space to The Warehouse Performing Arts Center in Cornelius, North Carolina.  After a successful fifteen month partnership with The Cornelius Art Center, we agreed that our rapid growth could not be effectively accommodated in their multi-pupose art studio.


As a finished theater, The Warehouse meets our technical needs of good sight lines, comfortable new seating, good acoustics, fully controllable lighting, and efficiencies gained in a permanent, single-purpose theater space.
