If you haven't heard (and if you're a drum corps fan, i don't know how you couldn't have), screenings of "Scouts Honor: Inside A Marching Brotherhood", the award-winning documentary filmed and recorde

Saw the movie at the Austin, TX Idie Film Festival. Very well done. It was selected as the best movie shown at this festival. I would LOVE to see it on a large screen.

We are finalizing the bonus features now, and expect to announce news within the coming weeks about pre-orders, the official release dates and the details regarding not only the DVD, but the Ultimate

If there were to be a showing in Connecticut where would it be best to to put it?

If you are asking which theater or which city, we don't know that area well. Go to the "SCREENINGS" page and act like you are going to request a screening. It will transfer you to the Gathr Films site and you can type in your zip code or city. It will show you the theaters that they participate with.

We highly recommend that you consider booking a theater that is centrally located so that lots of people can get there easily. There was recently a screening requested on the Eastern edge of St. Louis. #1 it wasn't easy for people to get to on a weeknight (when it's better to book these screenings) and #2 it wasn't in a very safe part of town.

If you are considering requesting a screening, have a promotion plan ready because it will largely be up to you to get people to purchase enough tickets to make it happen. It would be helpful if you have 4 or 5 friends who are willing to put in a little bit of time every day to help you promote it. Also, pick a date that's 3 or 4 months away. That way you have more time to promote your screening.

Probably nearest the greatest concentration of DC/band units. If it's held in SE CT along I95, you'll draw the NY folks.

Relative to the CT comment.

Most drum corps and competitive marching bands are in SW CT with a small half dozen around New London and another half dozen around Hartford.

Interestingly, DCI does NOT broadcast any of its theater productions in Fairfield County, the most populous in the State and also the county which has its own marching band circuit known as Musical Arts Conference (musicalartsconference.com) DCI theater showings in CT are not well attended; Waterbury and Branford (low of 7, high of 24 persons) options were often dropped due to lack of attendence; Manchester area mall got best consistent attendance over the years (no more than 4 dozen persons at any one showing0 followed by Milford Mall.

While Nassau and Suffolk on L.I. have a combined population of 3 million, DCI has only ever used one theater showing for its screen productions. Usually the chosen theater is on the border of the counties, not far from the L.I.E. and parkways (which are highways. Here we drive on parkways and park on driveways.) Westchester County occasionally has a DCI theater showing; parade corps are few, competitive marching bands even fewer.

The city of New York is its own quagmire when considering where and when to show given the number of transplants alum from elsewhere in the nation and the paucity of the marching activity but for a few schools on Staten Island. The many parade corps that once existed are gone except for the Crimson Kings in Chinatown.

I had an idea about CT, 7th Regiment and Hurricanes are going to the Holyoke parade in Holyoke Massacusets, maybe we could work something out where we go after the parade?

Today we'd like to highlight 4 dates/locations that are near (or past) the halfway point when it comes to the tickets they need to sell to make their screenings a reality. Remember these Gathr Films screenings only happen if enough tickets are sold by the deadline. Please take a moment to share this info with your friends:

• Barberton, OH - (Near Akron) Screening May 5th - 6 days until deadline -http://gathr.us/screening/11615

• Austin, TX - Screening May 12th - 9 days until deadline - http://gathr.us/screening/11943

• Glen Allen, VA - (Near Richmond) Screening May 14th - 13 days until deadline -http://gathr.us/screening/10086

• Round Lake, IL - (Near Chicago) Screening May 20th - 16 days until deadline -http://gathr.us/screening/11401

Credit cards aren't charged until a screening "tips" (sells enough tickets to happen). No tickets are sold at the movie theater, so they must be purchased in advance through Gathr Films.

We're aiming to start taking pre-orders for the DVD and Bluray within the next couple of weeks in our online store. We'll post an update here when it goes "live." Thanks for your interest in the film!
