Holy crap, the day of The Kids Grow Up theatrical premiere is here at last! It's not like our distribution ride has ended, far from it. But today represents the culmination of endless days of hard work going back for months, until everything seems, in retrospect, like one long fever dream. On the one hand, it's been enormous fun because this kind of attention and acclaim is never something to take for granted. But I'm also so ready to unwind from self-promotion auto-pilot, curl up in bed and sleep straight through for the next two weeks.
Today is a day to forget all that and simply celebrate. I'm deeply appreciative to all the people I've collaborated with in making the film. And eager to share in the moment with my family, co-workers, friends and colleagues.
And, most of all, with total stangers. In other words, the audience. We're all curious if you'll turn out in decent numbers and looking forward to hearing what you'll say about it, yourself.
If you're in the NYC area and thinking about seeing The Kids, I'd urge you to do it this weekend. Our weekend box office numbers will impact the entire theatrical run, especially in terms of the number of cities we'll get booked in. If you're not from around here, keep checking in to our Screenings page and see if it will soon be playing at a theater somwhat near you. If not, you can always bug your local theater owner about it - they might just listen.
And now, our premiere party preparations continue! Hope to see you at the theaters soon.
