Santa Fe Theater to Show Premiere of A Place at the Table

If you live in central or northern New Mexico, and you're looking for a place to watch the premiere of A Place at the Table, you're very much in luck.

The Cinemathique theater, which is part of Santa Fe's Center for Contemporary Arts, will be showing the documentary, starting on the premiere date of the movie, which is March 1.  The theater is located at 1050 Old Pecos Trail in Santa Fe. 

You probably know by now that this documentary is the anchor for Bread for the World's 2013 Offering of Letters. Here is the trailer

Bread for the World is making a push for as many people as possible to see the movie during its premiere weekend.  If there is a large attendance, the documentary stands a good chance of being held over for a longer period.

So if you live in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Los Alamos or nearby communities, please make an effort to attend on Friday, Saturday or Sunday (March 1-3), and bring a friend or two. And tell your colleagues, members of your congregation and neighbors to watch the movie. The theater has an online purchase option for tickets, although as of today (Feb. 13), tickets for A Place at the Table were not yet on sale.   

At this point it doesn't appear that the documentary will be showing in Albuquerque, at least not on premiere weekend. 

And if you are unable to attend the premiere in Santa Fe, stay tuned for instructions on how to view the movie via an on-demand option. The on-demand viewings on premiere weekend (and afterwards) will also be part of the viewership count.

Here is the listing in Cinemathique's Coming Attractions section

A Place at the Table

Fifty million people in the U.S.—including one in five children—don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush follow three hungry Americans: Barbie, a single Philadelphia mother who grew up in poverty and is trying to provide a better life for her two kids; Rosie, a Colorado fifth-grader who often has to depend on friends and neighbors to feed her and has trouble concentrating in school; and Tremonica, a Mississippi second-grader whose asthma and health issues are exacerbated by the largely empty calories her hardworking mother can afford. A PLACE AT THE TABLE suggests the deeper implications of hunger, suggesting how we can solve this problem, together, once and for all. (U.S., 2012, 95m, Magnolia Pictures)
Starts March 1
