Trio turn 9-11 issues into a blockbuster for local theater

By Peter Duveen

PETER'S NEW YORK, Sunday, November 30, 2008--Frustrated with the lack of accountability for what happened on September 11, 2001, three concerned upstate New Yorkers recently joined forces to see if they could mobilize the public to critically examine the government's version of the events of that day. One of the three managed to convince the proprietor of a local theater that a showing of the controversial documentary Loose Change Final Cut, a film critical of the government's version of 9-11, would draw a sizable crowd. The others teamed up in a supportive role to publicize the event. The result was a screening of the film last Tuesday at the Charles R. Wood Theater in Glens Falls, New York, with a personal appearance by the film's producer, Korey Rowe. Attendance far exceeded that of any other film shown in the theater's history.

"That was a record," said the theater's executive director, Bill Woodward, of the 143 paid attendees who passed through the theater's doors. The previous high grosser was a film that brought out about 100 people, Woodward told Peter's New York.

Online film phenomenon 'Loose Change 9/11' has been picked up for theatrical release in the UK.

The controversial documentary, which centres on the September 11 terrorist attacks and the failure of both the US government and the media to answer the questions surrounding the tragedy, is one of the most downloaded films in internet history.

It was also the subject of BBC documentary '9/11: The Conspiracy Files' and was screened in London as part of Time Out's 'My Favourite Film' season last year.

Revolver has picked up the rights to 'Loose Change (Final Cut)' and will release the film on the anniversary of 9/11.
