Are there any other Dallas-Fort Worth residents in forum besides me? If so, then mark this down on your calendar. On April 2nd at 8:00 pm, Tugg and I will be screening Wings of Desire at the Cinemark 14 in Denton. The catch is, I have to pre-sell 50 tickets in order for the event to happen. So, if you live in the DFW area and want to go, BUY YOUR TICKETS NOW. They won't be available at the door.
What if you don't live in the DFW area (hypothetically speaking: Washington), consider WINGS OF DESIRE a load of pretentious hooey, and couldn't be forced into the Cinemark 14 in Denton on that day with a cattle prod behind you and a naked Reese Witherspoon in front of you ...
... want to support the showing of boring art movies in small Southern burghs.
In other words, Andrew ... and I'm being totally serious, earlier tone aside ... would you consider it an insult if I bought a ticket to contribute to letting the film go forward but then didn't show (for multiple reasons).
EDIT - Also, if anyone knows they have DFW followers on Twitter/Facebook/Google+ I would appreciate any help you might be able to give me as far as spreading the word goes. Right now, it's all up to me. I'm doing the best I can, but I'm no marketing expert. Thanks again!
As for marketing ideas ... have you considered printing solicitation fliers and then sauntering over to the North Texas State campus and getting permission to put them in the boxes of professors and grad students in the theater/RTF/whatever-they-got and/or religion/theology/whatever-they-got departments. And on the department bulletin boards so the undergrads can see.
