Live first-of-its-kind movie debuts nationwide

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Movie history is being made today, and you can be part of it!

It's a live, first of its kind movie debuting tonight.

Actor Woody Harrelson aims to make movie history this week, by shooting a movie in a single take, with a single camera while beaming the entire film live to cinema audiences across the world.

The story is based on one of the worst nights in his life.

"Lost In London" was inspired by a night 15 years ago which began with Harrelson leaving a nightclub. It developed into a car chase, and ended with him in a police cell accused of damaging a London taxi cab.

"I wouldn't say it haunts me, but I don't look at it and laugh; it was a dreadful, dreadful night," he said.

There are other big names in the live movie event, including Owen Wilson and Willie Nelson.

Shooting takes place between 2 and 4 a.m. on Friday in London, which means cinema audiences in the U.S. get a chance to witness movie history tonight.

"It's being distributed through Fathom Events, they're the ones putting it into over 500 cinemas, and the life after this, I'm having good conversations with iTunes," Harrelson said.

The movie airs at 9 p.m. local time. There are theaters in Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, and Battle Creek that will be showing the live broadcast of it.
