MOMA NYC PREMIERE / FULLY AWAKE: BLACK MOUNTAIN COLLEGE

We hope you can join us for a FULLY AWAKE screening in New York either
Friday night or Saturday afternoon, though the ticketing at the Museum of
Modern Art is a bit challenging, so below please find ALL the details for
attending!

WHEN
Friday, October 3rd 2008
6:30pm (try to arrive around 6pm if possible) / Fully Awake Screening
8:00pm / Afterparty at Fontana's Bar (details below)

Saturday, October 4th 2008
2:00pm / Fully Awake Screening

WHERE
Screenings: The Museum of Modern Art (SPECIAL ENTRANCE FOR THEATERS!)
11 West 53rd Street  (between 5th / 6th  Avenues, but the theater entrance
for MoMA is closer to 5th Avenue, directly behind St. Thomas Episcopal
Church).  The train that drops you off right in front of the entrance is the
E/V train to 51st Street.

Friday Night Afterparty: Fontana's Bar (105 Eldridge St between Broome &
Grand) in the Lower East Side is a quick subway ride on the B/D train).  Get ready for $2 vodka cocktails courtesy of Sobieski Vodka, and $3 beer specials courtesy of Fontana's code word for the drinks special is FULLY AWAKE ;)

HOW TO GET TICKETS
Advance tickets are VERY important and they cost $10 each.  I have been
informed they expect FULLY AWAKE to sell out before Friday, so you will
probably not be able to get tickets at the door if you arrive at 6pm.
Saturday's screening is also expected to sell out, but our understanding is
that you will still be able to get tickets the day of the screening probably
(they are $10), and we also have some room on our guest list for Saturday
afternoon if you email me directly.

For tickets (mainly for Friday), you have two choices: 

1) Go to MoMA's main entrance to their INFORMATION desk between now and Thursday, Oct 2nd to purchase your tickets in advance.  Members of MoMA can pick up their free film tickets in advance as well.  Unfortunately, there are no tickets to be reserved by phone - they must be picked up in person. 

2) We have purchased a block of tickets in advance for $10 each for the
Friday night screening only.  If you cannot get to MoMA tobuy your tickets
in advance, please email me your name and how many tickets you would like
(unfortunately, I have to put a 2 ticket limit per person as I only have 50
tickets total to offer). Dena & Tito will have all the reserved tickets outside the MoMA film entrance starting at 6pm on Friday for pick-up. Please bring exact cash if possible.  If you are not there by 6:25pm to pick up your tickets, we will sell them to folks waiting to get in. 

We know there are lots of details, thanks so much for your interest in FULLY AWAKE, and we hope to see you this weekend and raise a glass to the awesome community effort that made this documentary a reality!
