FARGO — After a successful opening weekend, “Tankhouse,” the comedy about an upstart, avant-garde theater troupe starting in Fargo , has been extended for at least another week at the Fargo Theatre. The film will now be shown at least once a day through May 26.

The movie can also be streamed on Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Google Play, Redbox on Demand and VUDU/Fandango or pay per view through some cable companies.

Co-written and directed by Noam Tomaschoff , the story follows a Fargo native and her boyfriend who, after being banned from a New York Theatre troupe, relocate to Fargo to start a theatrical revolution.

The film was produced by Los Angeles-based Matthew Cooper and Click Content Studios, a video production company owned by Fargo-based Forum Communications, which owns The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead. Forum Communications President and CEO Bill Marcil Jr. and Click’s Managing Director Jim Manney are listed as executive producers. Fargo native Jessamine Burgum is also an executive producer and many properties owned by the Burgums are featured in the movie.

The film premiered locally at a packed Fargo Theatre on May 9 .
