Recap of Screening at IMAX at Marbles
We screened Abandoned Allies at the IMAX at Marbles on Sunday, February 3, 2013. We had an impressive turnout! To all the folks that attended the screening and stayed for the question and answer session: thank you! The conversations had at the Q&A were so memorable. What a wonderful afternoon! Here are two photos taken by John Havel.
Screenings like this happen with the help of a lot of very kind, generous people.
We’d like to thank Tim Hazelhurst at IMAX at Marbles for making this screening possible. The folks at IMAX at Marbles — including Katy Burgwyn, Emmaus Smith, Sarah Walston, and Taylor Leslie – are so wonderful for helping us screen the film once again. Huge thanks to Surry Roberts and George Shepard for being panelists, and taking the time to answer questions from the audience. It’s so wonderful to have them there to continue these important conversations.
Many, many thanks to Sally Smith for sharing the great news about Y’Soai and his family on WRAL and adding a plug to see the film at the end of their story (related post here). Thank you to Scott Rucci, David Iversen, and Andy Poe for making DVDs of the film to offer to audiences. Thank you, again, to Patrick Jones for designing the awesome posters we used at the screening at IMAX at Marbles.
A huge thanks, as always, to my loving family and friends. They’ve watched Abandoned Allies countless times, offered support and encouragement when I needed it most, and cheered me on whenever we had some small success. Thanks to Derek Roessler for selling DVDs at the screening — among the many other wonderful ways he has supported the film and championed my success.
Last but not least, a sincere thanks to the many men and women that have served our country, and those that continue protecting our freedoms every single day. To the Green Berets and Montagnards who served together during the Vietnam War: thank you, thank you, thank you.
