I tried to watch one, but my stoopid "highspeed" connection at work was NOT cooperating at all. The image was tiny, and I couldn't make out much in all the starts and stops. I'll try again from home. Have dial-up, but maybe at least it won't be so jittery, even if just as small on the screen.

Probably the coolest thing about MirrorMask, for me, is how utterly perfectly McKean-ish everything looked, right from the opening credits. After all those years of Sandman covers/graphic novels/other illustrations, there is something undeniably magical about seeing his images in motion.

I emailed my local art house theater. A very nice woman replied right away. She said it was "way too soon to tell" if they would show it or not. She said that they get their bookings, at the earliest, a week in advance, usually it is a few days in advance. She said I could ask again in Sept.
*Waits impatiently*

There's a discussion over in the Tour forum about trying to coordinate fieldtrips to see Mirror Mask (and if possible linking it with signing dates). Over in that thread I posted the following...

quote:
I AM SOOOOO GEEKED!

On a whim, after our little discussion here, I dropped an e-mail to the people who run one of (actually four of) our local/small indie theaters asking if Mirror Mask would be shown here in St. Louis at one of their theaters and if not what I had to do to get them to get the film. THIS is what I got as a reply!

Hi JP,

Good news! MirrorMask is currently scheduled to open at the Tivoli Theatre on Friday, September 30 for an exclusive one week engagement. As such, it will appear on the next Tivoli filmcalendar when it is printed and distributed in early September.

All the best,

THAT'S RIGHT, BABY! St. Louis is getting Mirror Mask! WHOOOOO HOOOOOO! So, all you midwesterners who want to see it, make a fieldtrip to the Lou and CancerDusk and I will show you around!

I can't wait to tell Han about this, we'll definitely have to meet up to see it opening day. I am SO stoked!


So, yeah. Geek'd Smile And everyone should come to St. Louis for the opening weekend Smile

Hey, Del! No idea why you didn't know that. Thought we talked about it, but now that I think about it, I think it was Nel in Chicago once .. can't remember for sure.

Anyhoo, are you seriously thinking about coming down to see it? Smile

I will definitely be contacting the theater folks again as time draws nearer and we have something of a count of people. I want to make sure they know we're there Smile

And you need to let me know next time you're in town.

I've not heard of theaters selling tickets three months in advance - do they do that?

Three months? Can't imagine. In my situation, being a small indie theater, I'm not sure they'll have them much more than a week ahead of time.

And UCA, I'm sure as soon as one gets posted somewhere it'll show up on Neil's blog and here shortly after. Check back! We'll have more details as they become available.

Well, my bad, I suppose I worded the question wrong... I just wanted to know exactly how we can possibly widen the release the FIRST time around as opposed to waiting for a second release. One can only watch the online trailer so many times.

Keep watching the trailer, keep spreading the word. It's the only way, really.

Like Dweller said. And maybe write e-mails to your local theaters, bugging them and requesting it. I figured if anyone in town was going to get it, it was one of our local indie theaters. Looked it up on google, found a site, found an e-mail and fired one off. Even got a reply (see above)! So yeah, maybe something like that for a local theater will work too?

I saw Mirrormask at the Edinburgh festival last week (introduced by Dave Mckean with a Q&A afterwards). Loved the film, really visually unique (as you'd expect) and some top performances. Hope it gets a decent release over here, I've been recommending it to everyone.
