‘Last Call’, a Movie Based on Growing Up in Upper Darby, Gets Released on Friday


You could say that Greg Lingo’s life lessons make up the script for his movie, “Last Call” being released Friday, March 19, writes Peg DeGrassa for the Daily Times.

The movie tells the story of a successful real estate developer who returns home for a funeral, reconnects with his old blue-collar Irish neighborhood, then must decide whether to save or raze his family’s bar.

Lingo graduated Upper Darby High School in 1990 and became a successful real estate developer.

Impatient in his youth to leave Delco, Lingo now lives and works in Radnor and Media, and is eager to share his youth experiences and his lifelong friendships in Upper Darby. 

You’ll find it in the film.

Lingo co-wrote the script with the film’s director, Paolo Pilladi. The script is based on a story by Lingo and two Upper Darby friends, Billy Reilly and Mike Baughan.

“Over ten years ago, the three of us sat down and recorded some of the really funny memories we had of growing up in Upper Darby,” said Lingo, now living in Radnor.

The bar in the movie, Callahan’s Tavern, is modeled after Callahan’s and Cawley’s Tavern in Upper Darby.
