Still Want to see Richard II Starring David Tennant Screened Near You? Here’s Your Chance. (PLEASE REBLOG TO SPREAD THE WORD!)
For those of you who were following me late last year, you may recall that I was able to put people in contact with the worldwide distribution team for the screening of Richard II. Many venues were set up as a direct result of fans helping the distribution team identify local venues, in the US and in other countries.
The RSC website (http://onscreen.rsc.org.uk/cinemas-and-tickets/default.aspx) currently only has Washington DC as an encore screening venue, but the team is hard at work trying to get other venues on board.
HERE’S WHERE YOU COME IN. If you want to see Richard II in a theater near you, please contact me through my Ask, and I will gladly put you in touch with the distribution team or pass along the info they need.
WHAT DO THEY NEED FROM YOU? Just a list of local theaters that might be interested in doing a screening, along with any contact info you can provide for those theaters. They will approach the venues you suggest, and try to get a screening set up. The best bet would be indy theaters or art centers that are likely to show something like this. If you don’t want to be in contact with the distribution team directly, you can just send me a list of theaters with their contact email addresses and websites, and I will pass the list along for you. However, if you agree to be in touch with them directly, they can get back to you with questions or request other venue suggestions if the first ones you think of fall through.
The encore screening will take place in the US between April 29 and June 2, so if you’re interested, please let me know soon. The more lead time you can give the theaters, the better your chances of getting a screening.
I can’t promise you’ll get a screening, but as many on Tumblr can verify, this process worked well last time in getting venues that wouldn’t have happened otherwise.
One more thing—I do reply to every Ask I get, so if you don’t hear back from me by the following day, you can expect I didn’t get your message. If that happens, please try again.
I will continue to post updates, and will also post the cities/states that make requests through me, and let you know if any of them get confirmed screenings.
Good luck! :)

Chose a seat at the airport near a power outlet and as the plane boarded (not my plane) I overheard this man talking. And he sounded kind of familiar and I looked over and it is one of my professors! Now the seating area is mostly empty and he is still talking.
Fun Fact: Lawrence, KS is the center of the Earth. (Google Earth, that is.) Which is pretty cool for those of us who live here, and for Jayhawks fans and Supernatural fans, as well.
How to confirm: Open up a fresh install of either the Windows or Linux version of Google Earth, and without moving the globe or clicking anything else, just click the plus sign repeatedly. As the US gets bigger on your screen, you’ll see an “untitled placemark” indicated by a little yellow pin. Keep clicking the plus sign, and you’ll end up in Lawrence, KS.
Why? Mostly because Brian McClendon, one of the creators of Google Earth, is from Lawrence. And it had to be centered somewhere by default, so why not Lawrence?
The Mac version centers on Chatham, KS because that’s where Dan Webb, the member of the team responsible for setting the center of the Mac version, is from. Both locations are near the geographic center of the contiguous continental US, McClendon’s and Webb’s home country.
If Google Earth had been created elsewhere, it might be centered on Meriden, England, or someplace in Madhya Pradesh, India.
