“The message of this film is Universal. That the only thing that really matters in life is Love. Love of your family, friends and life. It doesn’t matter if your Gay or straight. We are all looking for acceptance and Love. We all want to be happy and have a wonderful life. Tolerance and acceptance are so important as we learn from yesterday, Live for today, and hope for tomorrow.” said Tom Tangen, Movie Producer.

Pooltime original songs were by Hollywood’s own: Amadeus, Arnold G, Moira Cue, Ivan Estrada, Kris Searle, and there was an original score by Ken Fix.

“This film is part of a trilogy of films and I’m hoping that by the time we finish the third film people will hopefully understand how important acceptance and tolerance are and that is doesn’t matter whether its Gay story or a straight story. Its a LOVE STORY.” Mr. Tangen concluded.

There were a lot of media and photographers at the screening red carpet event waiting for the actors and VIP invited guest to arrive.


After the movie screening, people were invited to walk to the after-Party at Rage Nightclub at 10PM with complementary drinks for the first half-hour. Kris Searle performed live. The organizers had half of the second floor at Rage Night Club to celebrate with the cast members, directors, and VIP guests with champagne and cakes.

“It is always a pleasure to see a film that speaks to the LGBT community, and Michael Donahue and Tom Tangen have really delivered a beautiful independent film this year. I found ‘POOLTIME’ to be a fun story about love, friendships, dating and commitment between people. The actors give nice performances and the music really helps bring this motion picture to another level. Some of these excellent songs are clearly worthy of awards and I suspect that they will be a memorable piece of this production for a long time to come. I have no doubt that ‘POOLTIME’ will do well in the various independent film festivals.” said Dr. John Carvalho, CSU Senator and Member of the Political Action Committee, Human Rights Campaign.


The movie is not available yet for the general public’s viewing, but producers hope a major distribution company will buy the rights for national distribution.

The movie was produced by Michael Donahue Productions in association with Elusive Entertainment and co-produced by Inge Jaklin. The movie was written and directed by Michael Donahue. Pool Time The Movie is part of a trilogy series; Pizza Time and Party Time are due out soon.

About Pool Time The Movie:
Entering a gay midlife crisis, David, a handsome urban professional, decides to hold a different kind of pool party this weekend in West Hollywood. At almost 40, David invites only his former boyfriends, not to do shots of Patron and play Lady Gaga, but to see if there really is a husband for him somewhere in his pool. The moment one hunk’s swim trunks are nearly pulled off during horseplay in the pool, David’s former boyfriend Virgil shows up with his own mother! Mama Anna scolds David for his procrastinating– she wants David to get together with her son already! What’s keeping them apart? And in another surprise visit, David’s sister drops off her son for the day. Now David must keep his straight nephew from getting into trouble on the Internet. (David finds it tough to advise his straight nephew on fidelity when five near-naked guys are in the pool today!) Sure, David’s advice to his nephew helps the kid, but David has his own epiphany– one of the guys in the pool looks like “the one”. Cupid even unexpectedly pierces the hearts of Virgil’s mother, the Neighbor Tad, and even the pizza boy. David embarks on an exciting, touching, and often hilarious journey of rediscovery in a story about friendship, dating and commitment. After all, David’ ideal man can’t be far off with so many hot guys in his pool! The movie is about 80 minutes, For more information visit http://pooltimethemovie.com/
