"Video Games- The Movie"

7/15/14 12PM Update: 

The showtimes are Saturday at 7:30PM and Sunday-Thursday at 5:15PM. I plan to be at the theater by 7PM.  Feel free to join us in the lounge area with couch/chairs on the main floor then.  Not sure if this will be screened downstairs or upstairs (on the smaller screen).  Look forward to meeting you if you come Saturday.

Take care!

7/17/14 6PM Update: The free tickets have been won by Matt Smith (via FB) and Mark Z here.  Congrats again to you both.

I plan to be at the Saturday screening but the time hasn't been posted yet on the Plaza website and the movie promoter was uncertain when it would air.  As soon as I find out, I will update here.

The drawing for the tickets will be held at noon on July 17.

Join (RSVP yes) to this event for a chance to win ONE of two free tickets to the new "Video Games - The Movie" which will be shown for about a week at the Plaza Theater beginning Friday, July 18th. There will be two drawings.

Note: This contest is also running here:

(Officers of Metro Atlanta Geeks may join the event but are not eligible for the prize drawing.)

This event will be updated with ACTUAL showtimes (5PM is just a placeholder) once they are known. The drawing for the tickets will likely take place prior to July 17, but will be announced once known here as well.

Feel free to invite your friends!

About the movie:

Executive produced by Zach Braff, Video Games: The Movie is an epic feature-length documentary chronicling the meteoric rise of video games from nerd niche to multi-billion dollar industry. Featuring in-depth interviews with the godfathers who started it all, the icons of game design, and the geek gurus who are leading us into the future, the film is a celebration of gaming from Atari to Xbox, and an eye-opening look at what lies ahead. You can catch the trailer here:

From IMDB: Video Games: The Movie, a feature length documentary, aims to educate & entertain audiences about how video games are made, marketed, and consumed by looking back at gaming history and culture through the eyes of game developers, publishers, and consumers. The film is not just another film about the games industry, but attempts something much more ambitious; the question of what it means to be a 'gamer', a game maker, and where games are headed. Storytelling and the art of the video game medium are also explored in this first of it's kind film about the video game industry & the global culture it has created.
