This from the daily e-letter UrbanEye, published by the New York Times:
“Radio on the TV
Attention NPR-heads and people without cable (same thing): your hero, Ira Glass, will be previewing new episodes of the Showtime version of “This American Life” tonight at various movie theaters. Expect to see the same quirky stories, some special guests, and a live-via-satellite appearance by the bespectacled host. Bring your tote bags."
The Fathom Events information can be found here, while A Radio Host Tries His Voice On Television, by David Carr is where the original NYT article can be found.
i was at a screening of this in evanston last night. the theatre was packed. i also heard that all the other screenings in the city of chicago sold out.
TAL is brilliant every episode, and last night’s screening in theatres across the country was no exception.
This played at the Springfield 8 but I didn’t see how well it did, because I was seeing Iron Man.
