It's been a long journey back home for our film. It started in New Zealand, went to Europe, and now I'm headed to Australia next week. Along the way, we've collected various awards and made countless appearances in the press. New Zealand's government publicly stated on TV they would reconsider their ban.
I am an American. Nearly half a million of my neighbors die early each year from smoking. Instead of helping them use new technology, our government just announced corrupt new regulations that will severely hurt the people who helped nearly 9 million people reduce or quit smoking this decade. Canada is not much better.
It's time for truth.
On August 6th, 2016 at 7pm, we'll be hosting our North American premiere at the historic Pabst Theater in our hometown, Milwaukee. Near the center of North America, we're inviting our friends from the continent to join us for a celebration of the completion of our movie and to rally as we take this to the public.
It's time to make some noise, wake up the public, catch Hollywood's attention, and make the crooked politicians nervous.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday, July 6th (noon) at the Pabst Theater box office or PabstTheater.org. With 13,000+ people signed up for this invitation, we do expect a sellout.
If you are a member of the media, a political leader, or have helped us in the past, please reach out. I have reserved some tickets for you.
The red carpet event will start at 7pm. There is a bar in the lobby and we're planning an epic after-party celebration presented by Molecule Labs. We couldn't have pulled this celebration off without their help (or that of the Cheshire Club who made the introduction).
Please show them support.
I look forward to celebrating with you. Here's the details:
