GUILDERLAND — A New York City transplant, Guilderland resident Sal Fusco directed, produced, and starred in his own short film, Off Limits, which is set to run at the Madison Theatre this weekend.
The movie, set in Brooklyn, has a Mafia theme, and takes place mainly in a fictitious Italian restaurant. It was filmed in Schenectady.
A waiter at the restaurant ends up spending the night with a Mafioso’s girlfriend, and spends the movie running from him and his friends, with help from a fellow waiter.
The film features Fusco himself, as well as some big-name actors, such as Joe D’Onofrio, and local actors, including former Enterprise reporter, Zachary Simeone.
In May, when the movie first premiered, at the Bow Tie Cinema in Schenectady, Fusco told the Enterprise, “It was a great time, and I loved being able to use local actors and people I’ve worked with before.”
Off Limits will be shown on Jan. 18, 19, and 20, at 6:30 p.m., at the Madison Theatre on Madison Avenue in Albany. It will play just before the showing of the new film Broken City.
The cost for Fusco’s 30-minute film is $5, and the owner of the theater will offer those who want to stay for the second movie $2 off a regular ticket.
