The Waiting Room arrives on the big screen

A note from Peter Nicks and others who produced The Waiting Room, a compelling documentary about patients and staff in Oakland's Highland Hospital.  Here's the trailer.

The wait is over.

The Waiting Room opens this Wednesday in NYC and on Friday in L.A.!  New York Magazine has named the film a critics pick and described it as "the kind of observational doc that manages to say a lot by saying very little— avoiding political grandstanding and instead coolly observing the characters." And over in L.A. The Hollywood Reporter has named it an Oscar possibility in their initial assessment of the Oscars race. Wow! As far as we're concerned that's a huge statement about our little film and inspires us to work even harder to get the stories of the beautiful people in the waiting room heard.

We hope you can make it to one of these screenings, but fear not if you hang your hat in another city. We will be announcing more dates over the next couple of months in the Bay Area, Boston, DC, Houston, Seattle, and Minneapolis just to name a few.

Tickets available here:

IFC Center (New York City)
Laemlee Theaters (Santa Monica, Pasadena & Claremont)

Hope to see you there!

Thanks for the word on "The Waiting Room." Working as I do in ER Psychiatry, I know I'll be savoring that film. More generally, thanks for your whole blogging 'opus', which has offered perspective and been sustaining emotionally and intellectually as I deal with the challenging grind of it all.
