In January we introduced readers to a new documentary film that was in production, titled 759: Boy Scouts of Harlem. In a followup interview with the co-directors, Joshua (from BoyandGirlScouts.com) tried to learn more about a possible release date, but it was left at Spring of 2009.
In February we thought we were announcing the first premiere of 759: Boy Scouts of Harlem, however we were mistaken, that was just the ‘Aircraft Premiere’ on March 28th. Now that it has been cleared up we received word from Justin Szlasa, one of the film’s co-directors, that the World Premiere will be held on March 14th.
Hello fans of 759!
We are very happy to announce the World Premiere of the 759: Boy Scouts of Harlem on March 14th at 10AM at the state-of-the-art 340 seat theater at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture at 135th and Malcolm X Blvd. (Lenox Ave.) in Harlem, USA. The Schomburg Center is part of the New York Public Library and you can get there with the 2/3 train to 135th.
Thanks to the generous support of the Schomburg Center’s Junior Scholars Program the screening will be free but seating is VERY limited and each attendee MUST sign up in advance. Please do not sign up unless you are absolutely sure you can make it–we don’t want to turn people away and end up with empty seats.
To sign up send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have questions call Hellura Lyle at 917 497 1212. Hellura is helping us coordinate the screening.
We are thrilled to have this opportunity to premiere the film in the community where it was made–within walking distance of the Church of the Master where Troop 759 meets. It should be a lot of fun.
