In today’s Deal of the Day, I wanted to let you all know about a free theatrical screening for Channing Tatum’s political drama ‘Battle in Seattle‘. The movie will be shown at the 2nd Annual Lowell Film Festival in Lowell, Massachusetts, which is about 40 minutes outside of Boston.
As far as the festival is concerned, it’s focus is to help people learn more about food, fair trade and the global economy. The Boston Globe says, “It’s an unusual hybrid for a film festival, part arts event, part bazaar, part social justice rally. Nonfilm events include a market featuring businesses embracing fair trade practices; and guest speakers on such topics as sustainable farming and garment production.”
In addition to ‘Battle in Seattle‘, there will be 9 other feature length films and documentaries and a few film shorts, and the festival runs from Friday, April 3 – Sunday, April 5.
‘Battle in Seattle‘ is the headline film on Saturday night, and it will be shown from 8PM – 9:30PM in Room 222 at the University of Massachusetts’ Lowell O’Leary Library on 61 Wilder Street.
Seats are limited for the Friday and Saturday night films, so you should reserve your seat now by sending and email to [email protected]. Please be sure to include the name of the film in your request.
What’s next for ‘Battle in Seattle‘? The film is now available on DVD in the US, but will have it’s next theatrical release in Singapore (where it’s called ”决战西雅图‘) on Apr 2, 2009. You can CLICK HERE to get more information.
