"The decisions that you make, or don't make, are going to affect your future" - #MuddyLions
After opening to sold out shows and finishing #4 at the box office, “Troop 491: the Adventures of the Muddy Lions” received an extended theatrical run in Richmond, Virginia for another week – playing at Criterion Cinemas at Movieland now until October 17th! I attended the premiere of this family film, about a young boy torn between the expectations of the Boy Scouts and that of his inner city neighborhood, back in the spring – and it was a wonderful experience.
Needless to say, it’s inspiring to see how audiences -- who went to the theater this week and saw the film -- share the same enthusiasm that I have for “Troop: 491: the Adventures of the Muddy Lions” -- a story that unites men, women and children from all walks of life. Some audience members are even returning to the theater to see it again – this time, bringing their friends and family with them to enjoy the show.
Over the next seven days until October 17th, you have a choice to support this locally produced independent film by joining moviegoers at Criterion Cinemas. You also have a choice to share this information about the movie with your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and anyone else you know who are missing out on one of the most inspiring movies of 2013 and don’t even know it.
No matter how large or small your role in being a part of this film’s release, it will give director Patrick “Praheme” Ricks a chance at bringing “Troop: 491: the Adventures of the Muddy Lions” to additional cities while also making it possible for him to continue making movies that matter.
If you do nothing else this weekend, I’m asking you to watch the interview that TVJerry/SIFTER did with Praheme and spread the word about the #MuddyLions at Criterion Cinemas in Richmond, Virginia...
