Chasing Ice (James Balog's Sundance film of climate change) FREE TICKETS

Hi All

Complimentary tickets to see the new movie CHASING ICE this Wednesday at the Castro Theatre. The film tells the story of National Geographic photographer James Balog trekking to the ends of the earth to capture visual evidence of climate change. It won a cinematography award at Sundance in 2012, is nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song, and has been selected by more than 50 film festivals worldwide.
I run ticketing for our film and we have received charitable grant funds to purchase tickets for both the 3PM and 7PM showings this Wednesday at the Castro (it's showing as a double-feature, followed by Clint Eastwood's 1975 classic, The Eiger Sanction).
We've already provided hundreds of tickets to MeetUp groups like yours in other cities around the country. This is a charity-funded effort: we just want people to see this film! You're more than welcome to offer these tickets via Facebook, email blasts, etc. I know it's short notice, but if you're interested in reaching out to your followers, you could use wording such as:
--------------

      Sorry we didn't get to meet up. Coming from the EB took a long time and we ended up getting there just in time for the start of the movie. Very powerful movie, but hella depressing too! Hope you all enjoyed!

    Hi all,
    I'm happy to be a Michael stand-in of sorts. Except not as friendly and not as gay :) Vitaly, would you be my co-ambassador? I'll try to hang out in the front before the movie starts. I'm wearing a bright kelly green top, so come and say hello and if it's still possible we can try to find seats together. The only catch is that I might not be that early since I'm coming from Berkeley.
