Last night, Lorne Michaels hosted a premiere party for Colin Jost’s Staten Island Summer which will be premiering on Netflix July 30th, 2015. Variety covered the event and got some insight from Casey Jost, one of the film’s stars:

Tuesday night’s premiere of Netflix’s “Staten Island Summer” turned into a mix of family affair and mini “Saturday Night Live” reunion at the Sunshine Landmark Theatre as several SNL cast members came out to support head writer Colin Jost’s first feature film.

Cecily Strong, Bobby Moynihan, Will Forte and Kat McKinnon make appearances in the film, as well as Jost’s parents, brother and Staten Island residents from his childhood swim club.

“When I was 5 years old, I was on the swim team there. And when I was born, my parents took me and showed me around to the swim club,” said Casey Jost. “It was like our family.”

Mary Birdsong, who also stars in the film, described it as a love letter to Staten Island.
