Guest Filmmakers Present

The film’s lead actor, Nick Thune (Knocked Up, Dreamland), writer Steven Sears, and producer John Charles Meyer will introduce Dave Made a Maze in theater and stay for a post-film Q&A.


Nick Thune was born in Seattle and works in LA. His popularity has been steadily growing in recent years with appearances in the Laugh Factory, on Letterman and in several short comedy films. He’s also made cameo appearances in several major films.


John Charles Meyer worked at a DC political media firm in his 20s, then joined a rock band, and then went into acting in a plethora of TV projects and films.


Steve Sears has written multiple screenplays and produced two short films. Dave Made a Maze is his first feature. He performs in Bro Squad, one of the longest-running continuous weekly improv shows at Second City Los Angeles. He is currently shooting a lead role in the horror feature Pine Springs, and has unforgettable stories from working on Human Centipede 3.


All three filmmakers will be available to answer questions in theater after the film. More information about both filmmakers can be found on our website.


About The Film

This independently funded film was the brainchild of Steven Sears and Bill Watterson who won the Audience Award at the 2017 Slamdance Film Festival. Sears wrote the screenplay based off a story Watterson told from when he was a child and built a fort which his mother destroyed a panic when she couldn’t find him, thinking he was lost in the fort. 3 days and 60 plus pages later, the production of the film was off to the races.


Dave Made a Maze screens only at 9:00 PM on Friday, July 28. Tickets include screening and discussion: $10 with discounts for students, military, seniors and members of The Grand. This one time event is highly likely to sell out and we suggest advance purchase in theater or online at

The Grand Cinema is a nonprofit art-house theater open 365 days a year in downtown Tacoma featuring four screens and opportunities support independent film through volunteering and membership.
