Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is, Playing For Keeps
Three best friends, Danny (Daniel Jordano), Spikes (Matthew Penn) and Silk (Leon Grant) have graduated high school and are living out in the real world of New York City. Floundering and not really having any direction all three guys are trying to figure out how to make it big. One day while Danny is going through family papers he finds a title deed to a hotel in the little town of Bethany, Pennsylvania. Immediatly, Danny believes this is his chance to strike it rich. He enlists the help of his pals Spikes and Silk and makes them believe that this is going to be their big break. 

Once they get to PA and see the Hotel Majestic they realize it's a completely run down dump that hasn't been used in years. They also find that the locals aren't too interested in them turning their sleepy little town into a town with a rock n'roll themed hotel resort. A few members of the town have other lucrative plans for that property. So much so that they want to sabotage Danny and his gang of friends. Their first plan is to let Danny know he's only got 30 days to pass an inspection and or lose the place for good due: condemned. 

Will Danny and his friends succeed? Check out this 80's classic to find out! It's also got little known (at the time) Marisa Tomei in it as one of the girlfriends.
