'MATINEE' COMPLETES PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY
    UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Principal photography has been completed on "Matinee" starring John Goodman, Cathy Moriarty, Simon Fenton ("Power of One"), Omri Katz ("Dallas"), Kellie Martin ("Life Goes On") and Lisa Jakub ("Rambling Rose").  The film is produced by Matinee Inc. for release by Universal Pictures.
    Joe Dante directs this coming-of-age comedy based on a screenplay by Charlie Haas ("Tex," "Gremlins 2:  The New Batch"), Ed Naha ("Honey, I Shrunk the Kids") and Jerico Stone ("My Stepmother is an Alien").  Michael Finnell is producing.
    Set in Key West, Fla., in 1962, "Matinee" is a story about how a Saturday matinee and the Cuban missile crisis drastically affect the social lives of four teenagers.  Goodman portrays Lawrence Woolsey, the B-horror filmmaker who comes to town to showcase his latest thriller "MANT" (half man, half ant, all terror).
    Considered one of Hollywood's most versatile and accomplished actors, Goodman recently starred as baseball legend Babe Ruth in Universal Pictures' "The Babe."  He earned a Golden Globe nomination for his co-starring role in the Coen Brothers' critically acclaimed "Barton Fink."  Among Goodman's noteworthy credits are "King Ralph," "Always," "Stella," "Sea of Love," "Everybody's All American," "Punchline," "The Big Easy," "Arachnophobia" and "Raising Arizona." He also co-stars in the hit ABC series "Roseanne."
    Moriarty (Ruth) first captured the attention of movie audiences with her role as Vickie LaMotta in Martin Scorsese's "Raging Bull" opposite Robert DeNiro.  The role garnered her a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nomination, two Golden Globe nominations for Best Supporting Actress and Newcomer of the Year as well as a Best Supporting Actress nomination from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.  Her film credits include "The Mambo Kings," "Soapdish," "Kindergarten Cop" and "Neighbors."  Her next feature will be "The Gun in Betty Lou's Handbag."
    Dante and Finnell first teamed as director and producer in 1980 in the offbeat werewolf thriller/comedy "The Howling" and have been working together ever since.  Their combined credits include "Gremlins" and its sequel "Gremlins 2:  The New Batch," "Innerspace," "The 'burbs," "Explorers" and a segment of "Twilight Zone:  The Movie."
    Principal photography took place over a 10-week period at Universal Studios Florida in Orlando, at various Orlando suburb sites and on-location in Cocoa and Key West, Fla.
