I am excited to announce that we plan to screen the brand new documentary, THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING, at the Marcus La Crosse Cinema (2032 Ward Avenue) on Wednesday, November 18 at 6:30 p.m. as a Tugg event.

This new film is based on the highly acclaimed book, This Changes Everything: Capitalism versus the Climate, by Naomi Klein. ("The most momentous and contentious environmental book since Silent Spring.” - Rob Nixon The New York Times Book Review)

The film is narrated by Klein and highlights several communities that are on the front lines of catastrophic climate change. It also highlights solutions to this most important crisis of our time.

Tugg is an online organization that connects films, people who want to see them, and theaters. Tugg makes all arrangements with the theater. The theater and film production company set the ticket price. Then, the theater and Tugg set a threshold number of tickets that must be sold before an event will go live. If that number is not met by their deadline, then no one pays anything and the film is not shown. If the threshold IS met, then people are charged for their tickets which are emailed to them. The theater shows the film, but all the tickets are sold through the Tugg website and collected at the screening room door by the film host (me).

Tickets are only available online through the Tugg event site: The tickets will cost $11 each (ticket price is set by Tugg and the theater. If 70 (of max capacity 90) tickets have not been purchased by about November 10, then the event will not happen. If the minimum is reached, everyone who pre-ordered will get an emailing confirming the event is a go and their tickets will be charged and emailed to them. If it's sold out in short order, we may get a larger theater.

Please pass the word about this important film. Buy some tickets, bring your neighbors! Remember, you must get your tickets through the TUGG site - the theater will not have them!
