CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Tyler Davidson’s movie “Emily the Criminal” opens nationwide this weekend and he’ll be in Cleveland at local screenings on Friday and Saturday for questions about the movie and his career.

Davidson graduated from Chagrin Falls High School in 1993. He then graduated from the University of Virginia and started his film career in Cleveland with the movie “The Year That Trembled.”

He never left.

“I have two kids that are in Chagrin schools here and I prefer this as my home base and I go to LA when I need to,” said Davidson, who produces movies for his company Low Spark Films. “But we’ve shot a number of movies in Northeast Ohio and this is my favorite place to make movies.”

In addition to “Emily the Criminal,” starring Aubrey Plaza from “Parks and Recreation,” he’s also produced “The Land” starring Machine Gun Kelly and “The Kings of Summer,” both set and filmed in Northeast Ohio.

Davidson will do a Q&A after the 7:20 p.m. screening of “Emily the Criminal” at Chagrin Cinemas on Friday and after the 7 p.m. screening at Cinemark Valley View on Saturday.
