Dear Movie Fans,
I am passing on an offer to see the documentary "Chasing Ice" at Vinegar Hill this week. If you want to take up the offer, schedule the meetup and then contact the Jeff Nicholson (see below) for the comped tickets. I am willing to make any group member an "Event Host" which allows them to schedule meetups.
This is the message I received:
You can get FREE movie tickets for the group to “Chasing Ice” if you act fast!
Have you heard about this film? It’s breaking records, getting awards, and making a big splash nationwide. It recently made the official Oscar shortlist of only 15 films to be in consideration for the Best Documentary Feature Academy Award. The film is in limited release nationwide. Only 60 designated theaters have the opportunity to see it and it’s coming to Charlottesville this weekend!
Where: Visulite Vinegar Hill Theater, 220 W Market St, Charlottesville, VA 22903
Dates: Dec 21 - 28.
Times: 2:30, 4:30, 7:00, and 8:40 PM daily, except no 2:30 PM showings on Thur or Fri
I know this is very short notice, but would you like to set up a meetup.com event for this weekend and score free tickets for your entire group? If so, it is easy to claim tickets. You provide me with the list of names, we purchase the tickets on your behalf, and the theater maintains a Will Call list for us to check in people as they arrive. Just make sure everyone attending brings along a picture ID.
We can support up to 200 tickets for any one showing thanks to the support of generous donors who are providing the funds for us to buy tickets on your behalf.
If there is simply not enough time to get a meetup going for this weekend, would you be willing to support the film and the topic of global warming by emailing the meetup group with a link to a form for people to sign up for a showing of their choice over the weekend? The form link is: http://bit.ly/CI-comps. People will need to use the code "MEETUP". Anyone in the group can sign up and go see the film for free! I am happy to compose an email which you can send to the group, but cutoff for the form is Thurs night, 12/20!
ABOUT THE FILM
Chasing Ice follows acclaimed photographer James Balog on an epic journey as he deploystime-lapse cameras at glaciers around the world. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds, capturing ancient mountains of ice in motion. This revolutionary imagery reveals ice disappearing at a breathtaking rate. Journeying across the brutal Arctic with a team of young adventurers, Balog risks everything to capture the biggest story facing humanity.
After premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, where it won the award for Excellence in Cinematography, Chasing Ice has gone on to screen at more than 50 festivals around the world, winning 22 awards from international audiences.
