Glenn Beck Returns to the Big Screen with “Unelectable 2012 Live”

NCM® Fathom Events and Mercury Radio Arts Present “Glenn Beck’s Unelectable 2012 Live” Nationwide in Select Movie Theaters Live on September 20 with Second Showing on September 25

CENTENNIAL, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Following his successful series of six past cinematic events, leading media personality Glenn Beck returns to the big screen this fall with a new comedy stage show, Glenn Beck's Unelectable 2012 Live. Broadcast live from the Majestic Theater in San Antonio, Texas on Thursday, September 20 at 8:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. CT / 7:00 p.m. MT (tape delayed) / 8:00 p.m. PT (tape delayed), Beck will use the debate format to say the things politicians can’t – or won’t – say during this election season. From Democrats to Republicans, law makers to law breakers – no one is safe from Beck and his biting, straight-from-the-hip commentary. “Glenn Beck’s Unelectable 2012 Live” will be followed by a second showing in select theaters on September 25 at 7:30 p.m. local time.

Tickets for “Glenn Beck’s Unelectable 2012 Live” are available at participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com. Presented by NCM® Fathom Events and Mercury Radio Arts, the event will be broadcast to more than 660 select movie theaters across the country through NCM’s exclusive Digital Broadcast Network. For a complete list of theater locations and prices, visit the NCM Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

In this timely “debate,” Beck squares off against Brian Sack, host of The B.S. of A., the sketch comedy show that airs on TheBlaze (formerly GBTV), Beck’s HD video network. Sack’s “say anything to get elected” character is a composite of just about every candidate from all parties.

"The B.S. of A and I have a hard job with this comedy show but I think we can pull it off – create a fake debate that is actually funnier and more absurd than the real ones we have to look forward to this fall,” Beck said. “I am excited to once again partner with NCM Fathom Events and return to movie theaters across the country."

Debate moderators will be Jack Helmuth and Matt Fisher, two writer/performers from The B.S. of A., who play the perfect lefty foils to Beck’s plain-spoken common sense platform. In addition to the comedy, Beck will share words of inspiration and education on the topics that he is most passionate about.

“'Glenn Beck’s Unelectable 2012 Live' is an evening full of everything fans love about Beck: honesty, enlightenment, and a lot of comedy,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom Events. “As the political season heats up, audiences across the country will enjoy an election season experience they won’t soon forget.”

“Glenn Beck’s Unelectable 2012 Live” is Beck’s seventh event to be presented in movie theaters. Previous events include “Glenn Beck Live: Broke - Restarting the Engine of America” (2010), “Bold & Fresh Tour: O’Reilly and Beck LIVE” (2010), “Glenn Beck’s ‘The Christmas Sweater – A Return to Redemption’” (2009), “Glenn Beck’s ‘Common Sense Tour’” (2009), “Glenn Beck’s ‘The Christmas Sweater’” (2008), and “Beck ’08 – LIVE” (2008).

Beck is the founder of Mercury Radio Arts and one of America's leading radio and television personalities. Beck is also the author of several No. 1 New York Times bestsellers in both fiction and non-fiction. The Glenn Beck Program is syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks and is the third highest-rated national radio talk show among adults ages 25 to 54.
