MONDAY, September 21st:
Special Movie Event: The Age of Stupi
789 E Tahquitz Canyon Way
Palm Springs, CA 92262
The Age of Stupid will launch in America on September 21st 2009 from a solar-powered cinema tent in New York LIVE to over 400 movie theatres across the country. Tickets are on sale NOW. Just follow the links below to your nearest theatre and you’ll be taken directly to their online booking site.
This One Night Only live event is your only chance to see The Age of Stupid on the big screen and is timed for the day before the UN’s climate meeting on September 22nd, when 80 Heads of State – and therefore the world’s media – will gather in New York.
As an INclusive, rather than EXclusive event, everyone is invited to go to their local theatre to watch the VIPs arrive in Manhattan by boat, bike, rickshaw, chipfat car or skateboard, before braving the paparazzi on the green carpet. Following the first US screening of The Age of Stupid, there will be a further 40 minute live event featuring Kofi Annan, Gillian Anderson, the film’s director Franny Armstrong, the star of the film Pete Postlethwaite, and other leading thinkers, celebrities, and political figures from around the world. Audiences will also hear from scientists working in the Himalayas and Indonesian rain forest via live satellite link. In addition, 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. Finally, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke will wrap up the evening with a short acoustic performance.
