"The Steam Experiment," which filmed in Grand Rapids in September, will show locally at Celebration Cinema North starting May 5.

Rick Hert, director of the West Michigan Film Office, said the first screening will be invite-only, for local cast and crew members, with "some general showings after that."

He said the screenings will benefit the West Michigan Film and Video Alliance.

"The people at Celebration have been terrific about helping us arrange the fundraisers," Hert said.

More details are yet to be announced.

"Steam" stars Val Kilmer and Armand Assante and was directed by Philippe Martinez, head of Georgia-based Cinepro Pictures. The Cinepro Web site currently teases a $25 million-budgeted thriller titled "Tribes of October" as Martinez's next project.

At the "Steam" premiere at the Gasparilla Film Festival in Tampa, Fla. in March, the director said he was considering bringing the project to Grand Rapids, but no details have been made public yet.
