This American Life – Live! in Select Movie Theatres – One Night Only

tal_live-posterThis is going to be an interesting event:

My favorite podcast and host, Ira Glass on This American Life, will be broadcasting live via satellite to more than 400 movie screens nationwide on Thursday, April 23rd.

"Ira Glass will host an actual episode of the radio program, performed onstage by some of our favorite contributors. Dan Savage, Starlee Kine, and Mike Birbiglia will tell stories. David Rakoff and Dave Hill will conduct a ‘special investigation.’ Plus a new cartoon by Chris Ware, additional visuals by Arthur Jones, and a very special appearance by Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer!"

Listed below are the only 3 movie theatres in Dallas showing the live broadcast:

  1. AMC Northpark Center 15, 8687 N. Central Expressway, Dallas, TX 75231
  2. Cinemark 17 with IMAX, 11819 Webb Chapel, Dallas, TX 75234

And, enter for the chance to win one of ten hand-printed, extremely limited, manually silkscreened posters, numbered, and signed by Ira Glass. Winners will be chosen at random and will be announced during the show on April 23rd. You do not have to be present to win. The deadline for entry is April 20th, 2009.
