BBC Home Entertainment, Aint it Cool News, and the Alamo Drafthouse have come together for a big-screen presentation of the newly remastered classic DOCTOR WHO story “The Three Doctors.”
The episode is described thusly by BBC:
The Time Lords are in crisis. A powerful force is draining their energy into a mysterious Black Hole, and they must recruit the Doctor to save them. But when the third Doctor (Jon Pertwee) gets targeted by the force, they realize that one Doctor isn’t enough for this mission- they’ll need the help of the first Doctor (William Hartnell) and the second Doctor (Patrick Troughton) as well. All three of the Doctor’s incarnations, aided by Jo Grant and UNIT, must face the wrath of Omega – a fallen Time Lord trapped in a universe of anti-matter, with one thing on his mind: revenge.
In keeping with DOCTOR WHO’s longstanding tradition of transmitting on Saturday afternoons/early evenings, “The Three Doctors” will screen on Saturday March 24 at 1pm - at the amazing new Alamo Drafthouse location on Slaughter Lane here in Southwest Austin.
I’ll be present and hosting the event, which is FREE TO THE PUBLIC and is first come, first-served, although attendees can reserve a seat with a $5 food voucher which can be found HERE.
Over 1,400 Whovians showed up to the Dragon*Con premiere screening of Night Terrors during Labor Day weekend. (Thanks so much to everyone who came out!)
Join BBC America for a Dragon*Con exclusive screening of the new Doctor Who episode, “Night Terrors,” written by Mark Gatiss. In this episode, the Doctor receives a distress call from the scariest place in the Universe: a child’s bedroom. Terrified of the monsters in his cupboard, George’s pleas for help break through the barriers of time and space. But allaying his fears won’t be easy, even for the Doctor, because George’s monsters are real. Saturday (9/3) 7PM, 3rd Floor Grand Ballroom (Sheraton)
Dragon*Con will be held this Labor Day weekend (September 2-5, 2011) in Atlanta, GA. There’s a BritTrack for all things British sci-fi including other Doctor Who and Torchwood-related guests.
Congratulations again to the Bull Family of Madison, WI who won the grand prize in the Where’s The TARDIS contest — a special premiere screening of Doctor Who “Let’s Kill Hitler” in their hometown plus all 47 years of Doctor Who on DVD! Their screening was held at noon Central Time Saturday, August 27th timed to coincide with the global premiere of Doctor Who.
Over 100 fans, family and friends showed up for the screening including multiple Doctors, TARDISes, and even an Idris! The Bull Family won with their Ice Shanty TARDIS built for ice fishing during the cold Wisconsin winters. With so many DVDs to watch, perhaps they’ll spend little more time this winter staying warm indoors.
See all the photos on Teh Facebooks.
Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill at the BFI screening of “Let’s Kill Hitler” give a very unusual kind of spoiler…
Got our wristbands!
I will be attending the screening Monday. And I’m scared to death.
I’ve never done something like that and I don’t really know how I should prepare myself. The worst being that my English is kind of bad, so I will probably be too shy to even try to socialise.
On the bright side, I will be there…
Who is going to the NYC screening on Monday?
My newfound friends and I performed it in front of the cast, and Matt took out his phone to record it, but forgot to hit record! It was adorable! They loved it though.
And I high fived Arthur. And shook Matt’s hand and told him he was my wardrobe inspiration. He was like “oh cool!” and smiled…
Apparently there is video of this.
Coming soon…. ;-)
Monday, April 11th. 7 pm Eastern. Village East Cinema, 189 Second Avenue, New York.
teamtardis: The premiere episode of the new season of Doctor Who on the big screen. Parts one and two.
That’s not enough? Then how about Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill, Alex Kingston, and Steven Moffat live in person, in a Q&A session hosted by your ol’ pal Chris Hardwick?
Yeah, thought so.
Seating is first-come, first served. The details are here, and remember that an RSVP doesn’t guarantee a seat, so get there early. Oh, and if you aren’t in New York or can’t go, it’ll be recorded for the Nerdist Podcast, so everybody wins.
robotyeti: Whee. :D
I’m planning on getting there pretty early - I just hope everyone else doesn’t get there earlier.
