better-living-through-chemistry-brd-2dIndividuals who know and love Annapolis should mark their calendars for Friday, March 14. That’s the day the Maryland-made movie “Better Living through Chemistry” will make its debut in 75 theaters nationwide, including the Charles Theater in Baltimore.

Written and directed by Geoff Moore and David Posamentier, the movie stars Sam Rockwell, Oliva Wilde, Michelle Monaghan, Ray Liotta and Jane Fonda. It’s about a small town pharmacist (played by Sam Rockwell) who is in a rut until he meets trophy wife Elizabeth Roberts (played by Olivia Wilde) and takes a walk on the wild side.

After the shooting of her scene in Annapolis, Jane Fonda raved about the destination in a June 1, 2012 blog: “Just finished my Cameo on “Better Living through Chemistry”. We filmed in Annapolis, Maryland. I’ve never been there before. Who knew how utterly charming it is? Loved it! Wish I could have stayed longer.”

Annapolis & Anne Arundel County Conference and Visitors Bureau President and CEO Connie Del Signore agrees with Fonda’s assessment. “The film shows off Annapolis in a wonderful way. If you love Annapolis, the movie is a must see. It will be great fun to identify familiar locations that ‘star’ in the film. For individuals who haven’t yet visited Annapolis, “Better Living through Chemistry”will give them a great introduction.” Among the Annapolis locations featured in the film are: State Circle, Maryland Avenue, Main Street, Galway Bay Irish Pub, Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts and Quiet Waters Park.

Through the efforts of the Maryland Film Office, “Better Living through Chemistry” was shot in Maryland in the summer of 2012. According to the Film Office, the movie hired nearly 200 Maryland crew, cast members and extras and directly purchased or rented goods and/or services from 571 Maryland vendors. More than 200 of the businesses patronized were in Annapolis and Anne Arundel County.

The AAACCVB is a nonprofit, membership-based, destination marketing organization that generates revenues for the local economy by promoting Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay to leisure, sports and business travelers across the country and around the world.
