Earlier this month, What’sUpNewp and Jane Pickens Theater co-hosted a 20th Anniversary screening of Outside Providence at Jane Pickens Theater in Newport.

Among the sold-out crowd, were many of the staff and crew that made the movie possible — co-writer Bobby Farrelly, Director Michael Corrente, and co-writer and author Peter Farrelly.

Earlier this year, Farrelly won two Oscars for Green Book and this was the first time he returned to Rhode Island.
