Take Your Friends to See “Suffragette” This Weekend!
The movie, “Suffragette,” starring Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter and Meryl Streep details the push for women’s suffrage in the United Kingdom. The film will expand its reach beyond New York and Los Angeles — and will open in seven additional markets this weekend: Washington, D.C., Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Francisco and Toronto.
It is important to see “Suffragette” and fill theaters this weekend, from October 30-November 1.
*The film sends a powerful message of female empowerment which is an important message for current and future generations
*The film addresses issues that are timely and relevant to our continued struggles for equal rights today
*In an industry where women are under-represented, “Suffragette,” is a rarity in Hollywood — an all-female production. That includes the director, screenwriter, producers and lead cast
*If we want to see more women-focused stories shaped by female voices, we need sold out theaters for “Suffragette” THIS weekend, so that the film will receiver wider distribution
Male reviewers from Time (subscription only) and the San Francisco Chronicle are falsely portraying the film as inaccurate and uninspiring…
Here’s what you can do to make a difference:
*Enlist ten friends to see the film this weekend. If a theater buyout is not an option, commit to getting ten friends to see the film. Twenty people each committing to bring ten people would fill a theater.
*Share this email with your NATIONWIDE circle of friends.
*Buy out a film screening. An average screening has between 150-200 seats. At an average ticket price of $13, an entire screening would cost about $2,500 to ensure a full house. Buy the tickets and share them with high school girls, college students, non-profit groups, employees, etc., and use it as a tax write-off.
