Dwindling clientele and strict smoking laws have forced Murray to close his karaoke bar. But when a freak blizzard strands a collection of dysfunctional strangers, Murray’s hopes for a quiet closing become buried in an avalanche of unexpected events.


“This movie checks off so many emotions. Light humor, love, self-awareness, defeat and success. “Last Call at Murray’s” encompasses small town America and the lives of those who are in it daily and those who are just passing. The misfit characters that seek refuge during the storm are relatable journeying through the mid-life crisis with the perfect balance of tragedy and comedy.”
-- Raychel Harvey-Jones, LA Patch

“We learn that appearances can be deceiving. We also see love bloom and relationships begin, mend and end. The movie showcases beginnings and endings and what happens in between. It’s called life.”
-- Betty Jo Tucker, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
