Cinema Showtime, an Indiegogo crowdfunding multi-media project designed to reunite film fans following the Coronavirus lockdown, has launched. They will be working in partnership with MediCinema, the charity that brings the magic of film to hospitals.
Cinema Showtime is a project that is looking forward to a time when restrictions are lifted further and we can start doing what we love again; going to the pictures. It is looking forward to a time when we can watch re-scheduled movies that we have been waiting to see for months on the big screen with our mates. The current guidelines suggest that we can expect to see cinemas reopen to the public on July 4th – perhaps that will be our own Independence Day.
What the Cinema Showtime project involves:
- Production and distribution of a free glossy magazine, written by film experts and packed with the ultimate preview of every movie being released between November 2020 and August 2021. This will include the latest release dates, info, features, interviews and more.
- Staging a one-off, live event in a prominent London venue called Cinema Showtime Live! that fans and contributors will be invited to attend. This will include a fan lottery with incredible prizes and money can’t buy merchandise and experiences.
- Creating an online site and newsletter that celebrates the return of cinema with up-to-the-minute news and info.
- Producing unique and exclusive merchandise to tie in with the event and film releases.
10% of all contributions and money raised will go to the charity MediCinema to assist with their work.
