Who's up for this?

From Roadracing World

SLAMDANCE DISTRIBUTION TAKES INDI MOTO GP FILM “FASTER” INTO NATIONAL THEATRICAL RELEASE

Los Angeles, CA – For the first time, motorcycle enthusiasts and action thrill seekers across the country will have a chance to see Mark Neale’s independent film FASTER, the action-packed documentary about grand-prix motorcycle racing, in major theater chains. Slamdance Distribution, an entity of Slamdance Media Group, makes this national theatrical release of FASTER possible.

FASTER takes you on-and off track with the world's top motorcycle road racers, in an exciting full-throttle-and-sidewise blast through the world of MotoGP racing. The full-length documentary film is a headlong rush into the ultra-dangerous, ultra-competitive world of championship motorcycle racing. Narrated by Ewan McGregor, FASTER documents the lives of four of the sports’ top riders in 2001 -- Valentino Rossi, Max Biaggi, Gary McCoy, and John Hopkins -- as they travel the globe competing against each other.

From September through October 2004, FASTER (in 35 mm) will open in over 70 screens in major metropolitan markets for excusive two-week runs. Exhibition partners including CineMark, Landmark Theaters, AMC and Pacific Theaters are thrilled about the opportunity to offer this unique heart-pounding, adrenaline-rush film to their audiences. A theatrical premiere event in Atlanta on September 2, 2004 will kick off FASTER’s national theatrical release.

For details on FASTER exhibition dates, theaters and show times please visit www.slamdance.com


Slamdance Media Group (SMG) is a spin-off entity of the Slamdance Film Festival, a successful independent film festival held in Park City, Utah since 1995. Slamdance Distribution, which houses SMG’s theatrical and home entertainment divisions, was created to support independent filmmakers year-round with a commercial enterprise that brings them financial reward by exhibiting their films in theaters across the country. For more information on Slamdance Media Group and the Slamdance Film Festival visit www.slamdance.com.

WHAT: Nearly 1,000 motorcycle enthusiasts and action thrill seekers will converge on their bikes for a “ride-in” through the streets of Atlanta to support and celebrate the U.S. theatrical premier of the world famous MotoGP documentary film FASTER, presented by Chevy.

FASTER takes you on and off track with the world's top motorcycle road racers, in an exciting full-throttle, a sidewise blast through the world of MotoGP racing. The full-length documentary film is a headlong rush into the ultra-dangerous, ultra-competitive world of championship motorcycle racing.

I've seen the DVD but it would be cool to roll some people out to the theater. It would be fun and show some support for the sport. Maybe more movies like this will get made.

I'd rather pay my ten bucks and see it on the big screen, with Dolby sound, than watch it on my TV.

What's the parking situation at either theater?
