New Orleans Screening of Outfoxed: HUGE turnout (with pic)
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 02:20 PM by funkybutt
This picture was taken early (arond 5:30). THe hosts showed the film twice. So many more people showed up for the later screening. We had voter registration stacks that you could pick up. Rock the Vote was there. Lot's of people brought literature, food, beverages ect. I handed out some things I found on democrats.org about the effects the Bush Administration has had on our state as well as some other things I've found pdfs for on the internet. The early showing was a little hard to see b/c there was still so much light in the sky but it didn't really bother me much b/c it was mostly interviews and I could tell who everyone was. The crowd was awesome and the hosts are doing a great job of packing their events everytime! Not sure what the final numbers were but i know there were around 150 while i was there and more came through for the later showing.

7. Details, please-did you show this movie outside?
How, specifically, did you set this up? What size screen? (Did you recommend people bring cans of Off?)

8. I can't take responsibility...i was not the organizer
The movie was shown on a screen hung on a small house (old slaves quarters which now serves as an art gallery on the premesis. There was a projector that was supplied by someone who volunteered to take care of the Audio Visual side of things.People were kept informed via email as well as through the moveon webpage about what was needed ect. These parties started witht he F/911 party so word had really caught on.
