I’ve been waiting for this weekend for months.  This is the weekend that our film Sleepwalk with Me opens around the country, in over 25 cities.  We had a record setting premiere weekend in New York last week, tons of sold out shows.  A higher per screen average than The Avengers.

Though our main goal with the film, as I’ve said many times now, was to make a movie that feels like the best stories on the radio show.  I’m proud that we managed that.  The movie’s funny and heartfelt.  It’s been a labor of love for everyone who worked on it.

Opening weekend is important if we want to stay in theaters so if you’re looking for a film this weekend, I hope you come see ours.  Here’s the list of theaters where it’ll be, many of which have the links to buy tickets in advance. Birbiglia will be in person doing Q&As at the Nuart theater in Los Angeles, the Embarcadero in San Francisco and the Shattuck in Berkeley. I’ll be at the Music Box in Chicago Friday and Saturday and the Landmark E Street in Washington DC on Sunday and Monday.  New York has added theaters around Manhattan and at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

I hope you come out!
