TEN9Eight: Shoot for the Moon

By Kate Michael On 11.11.2009

They took a page out of the playbook of "Paranormal Activity" and "Hannah Montana" for this one... but thankfully the topic isn't reminiscent of either one. What this does tell us is that the method for movie releases is changing - and entrepreneurs have taken notice!

Available for one week only (H
annah...) exclusively at 15 AMC locations in only 8 cities (Paranormal...) award-winning filmmaker Mary Mazzio's documentary "TEN9Eight: Shoot for the Moon" is starting this Friday, November 13th.

The documentary
chronicles the inspirational stories of several teens from low-income communities, many of whom are very potential dropout risks... or worse. Then, the students enter a nationwide business plan competition run by the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) - you've heard us rave on this program before. We're told that in the US, a kid drops out of school every 9 seconds. Through this program, their lives are changed.

Tickets are on sale now; for "TEN9Eight" showing at:
District of Columbia Washington D.C. AMC Loews Georgetown 14 District of Columbia Washington D.C. AMC MJ Capital Center 12

*AMC will also offer a free (first come-first serve) screening at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 12 at all participating theatres for interested teachers and students. To attend, please present a valid teacher or student I.D. at the box office.
