Hello United States of Autism families and friends,
We’re excited to announce that the United States of Autism movie will be released in theaters starting on April 5th of 2013! Our first showing will take place in NYC, and we will roll it out to more cities as fast as possible.
But wait, there’s more!
We’re doing things a little bit different (don’t we always!) for our release then other films you may know. Starting in April, the film service we use, Tugg, will begin screenings of the film based upon successful ticket sales around the country. We’re opening up screenings of the film in nearly every city we visited along the way (or closest metro area), as well as a few other cities, and we want your help to make it happen.
Here’s the best part. You can earn money for autism by helping us market the film!
Here’s how the service works. Contact us with a screening date you have in mind, preferably at least 3 – 4 weeks in advance. You can find a list of currently scheduled screenings here.Together we set a date and pick a theater, preferably AMC but others work great as well. We sell tickets. If we meet a minimum number of tickets sold, the screening goes on! But you want to know the best part? We’re donating 25% of our total net ticket sales to a local organization, family, or individual in the autism community that can be served with our help! So by screening our film, you can make money for someone in the local autism community. If we sell enough tickets, we may even be able to have Rich or Sugey come out to your screening and do a question and answer session with your people, or maybe even Skype in as a surprise!
But we want to help more people!
So let’s see what we can do to get the film out there! Go ahead and let us know if you’d like to host a screening in your area in April or May, and we’ll start making the arrangements. You can contact us here and we’ll be sure to get back to you as fast as possible. And if you don’t want to help, hey, no big deal. We still love you out there!
Thanks a bunch, and we can’t wait to present a few years work for you on the big screen!
The team at The United States of Autism
