"Batkid Begins" Begins

http://allfortheboys.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Fist.pngMy high school friend Kurt is up to some good again.  Here's a recent message from him about where his upcoming documentary, "Batkid Begins," is playing.

Hi Everyone,

Kurt here;  hope you're having a marvelous June.

I wanted to let y'all know that "Batkid Begins", the documentary I co-wrote, edited and sound designed last year in collaboration with my Emmy-winning director pal Dana Nachman, has been acquired by Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema, who will be releasing it in theatres starting June 26th, two weeks from today!

It opens Friday, June 26th at…

Los Angeles:  The Landmark
New York City: Angelika Film Center
San Francisco: The Landmark Embarcadero and Sundance Kabuki Theatres
Updated theatre information for all venues can be found at www.batkidbegins.com.

It will open in more cities two weeks later on Friday, July 10th -- and even more cities two weeks after that on Friday, July 24th.  How wide they open it depends an awful lot on how well it does that first weekend…so if you're in L.A., New York or San Francisco - or know people that are - we'd all truly appreciate you coming out to see it that first weekend and/or spreading the word!  If we can pack the theatres in all three cities that first weekend, hopefully this thing will be playing everywhere by the end of the summer. :)  The filmmakers' share of the proceeds is going to Make-A-Wish and other San Francisco charities.

Here's the film's trailer, which received 1.5 million views the day it was released: http://www.usatoday.com/videos/life/movies/2015/05/20/27661499/
To date, the film has won 5 audience awards, the Heartland Film Truly Moving Picture Award, the Common Sense Media Seal and the Dove Foundation Seal.  It's rated PG (for some mild thematic material) and is perfect for the whole family.

I'll send a reminder the week of release;  thank you so much for all your support!!!

Happy Friday,
Kurt
