Some of us got together for TS3 when it came out last year. We saw it in IMAX 3D at Jordan's Furniture in Natick. Really great experience in that theater with stadium seating with "butt kicker" seats so you really feel the bass.

That would be my preferred venue. But Val & I will show up at anything that gets set up along these lines.

I would attend! July 2 is my birthday so I'd love to spend part of it towards a good cause!

July 2nd is actually perfect! (i thought for some reason it was June 2nd). We'll be traveling back to NY that day from Maine and it's right on the way!! Can we sign up now or buy tickets ahead of time? I'd hate to get all the way there and it be sold out. My kids are super excited to see this movie so it would be a great end to our vacation!

Hi Jeff,

TS3 was great but Cinema world will donate all of the ticket sales to GKTW and we get to set the price. We will also have the entire theatre to ourselves.

As soon as I have the finalized date I will publize this more on the Powerof10.us site and other boards here on the DIS. Keep checking back for details. Should we look for a resturant for post movie festivities?

Keep the ideas coming!!

I think a restaurant for a post movie lunch would be a great idea!!! I hope the July 2nd date sticks because that would work out perfectly for my family and I. Keep us updated with all the details! Great work!

Where is the theater? If there is an UNO's nearby they sometimes sponsor fundraisers and donate a percentage of the sales for the day with coupons we would pass out. Just a thought... I am not sure they run those on Saturdays but it may be worth checking out.

The theater is in Fitchburg MA, click the link on the OP. Looks like there is an Uno's in Leominster. I like the idea. If not Uno maybe another restaurant in the area would do something similar.

Tara, I checked with the GM at the Marlborough Best Buy and employees donate time to charities like Relay-for-life, Walk-for-Hunger, etc. Does your bro need people to staff the concessions, sell tickets, seat people, clean-up?? If so, I can pass the suggestion to have BBY employees donate their time. I'm also checking on BBY donating product.

I noticed the Best Buy in Kissimmee FL list Give Kids the World as a charity. If you would like I can check with the GM to see what they do for charitable events at GKTW.

Let me know.
