September 21 at 730pm the Age of Stupid will premier by satellite broadcast from NYC across the USA on over 400 screens with LIVE panel discussion.
I met Franny Alexander, director of Age of Stupid (looking back from the future on how stupid humanity has been by continuing what we are doing now) when she was here for a preview screening in downtown DC. Franny thinks the Copenhagen Climate Conference in December is critical - and is releasing the film now to promote interest in the climate change issue.
There are 9 theaters screening the premier in the DC area -- enter your zip code for the closest. I suggest these theaters for meetup members who want to meet each other -- contact through the meetup email system and meetup photos, or raise a "Meetup" sign overhead outside the theater.

The world?s biggest and greenest live film premiere. At 7.30pm on Monday 21st September, A-list celebrities will walk the green carpet to our solar-powered cinema tent in downtown Manhattan. Following the screening of The Age of Stupid, there will be a panel discussion featuring Kofi Annan, Mary Robinson, Gillian Anderson, star of the film Pete Postlethwaite and the film?s director Franny Armstrong. There will be live music from Radiohead?s Thom Yorke, plus live satellite links to scientists in the Indonesian rainforests and at the melting glaciers in the Himalayas which provide drinking water for hundreds of millions of people in India and Bangladesh. A group of children will speak from the very room in Copenhagen in which all our futures will be decided at the UN climate summit in December.
The film and live event will be broadcast live and in HD to over 400 cinemas across the US on September 21st (7:30 PM ET/ 6:30 PM CT/ 5:30 PM MT/ tape delayed 8PM PT). Over the next 24 hours, it will be rolled out across the world - from Berlin to Buenos Aires, from Turkey to Thailand - with another 250+ cinemas in over 50 countries spanning Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
