|Home: BigScreen Journal - "Dreamgirls" Road Show in NY, LA, and SF|
Before "Dreamgirls" makes its nationwide debut, the film will roll out in a "road show" in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. The exclusive one-week engagements begin December 15, 2006.
"'Dreamgirls' is a special film, the kind that comes around once in a generation," said Jim Tharp, president of theatrical distribution for Paramount Pictures. "We wanted to bring it to audiences in a special way and we think this 'road show' does the film justice. Bill Condon has delivered a very entertaining movie -- this is a film that is every bit as memorable as the legendary Broadway production that inspired it."
New York’s Ziegfeld Theater, Los Angeles’s Cinerama Dome, and San Francisco’s Metreon will host the special engagements of “Dreamgirls.” Each theater will hold displays on the making of the movie, including designs from Academy Award®-winning production designer John Myhre and Academy Award®-nominated costume designer Sharen L. Davis.
In addition, moviegoers will have the opportunity to purchase exclusive merchandise and the film’s soundtrack in the lobby. The $25 reserved-seat ticket also includes a limited edition program.
Following the limited engagement, the film will open in theaters everywhere on December 25.
