“The National Dog Show Presented by Purina®”
Air Date: Thursday, November 27 on NBC (12-2 p.m. across all time zones)
“The National Dog Show Presented by Purina®” is hosted by award-winning actor, author and Broadway star John O’Hurley (“Seinfeld,” “Dancing with the Stars”) and expert analyst David Frei, an AKC-licensed judge and host of USA Network’s “The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.” NBC’s Mary Carillo will report from the benching area and inside the show ring. Celebrating America’s love of man’s best friend, the telecast showcases some 1,500 purebred canines competing for the title of “Best in Show.” Unlike traditional dog show coverage, the National Dog Show offers the country’s 65 million pet-owning households an afternoon of family-oriented features, facilitated by the open format of the Kennel Club of Philadelphia event.

As we head into the fall festival season, we have some great news about The Immortalists. A lot has happened since our World Premiere at SXSW, and this fall will be a busy time for team Immortalists as we crisscross the globe, screening the film to new audiences and provoking debate about longevity and futurism.
We will begin October with the California Premiere at the prestigious Mill Valley Film Festival, followed by a showing in Moscow’s 360 Contemporary Film Festival, the London BFI International Film Festival, the Hollywood Film Festival, and then the Philadelphia Film Festival– all in October!
But that’s not the end of it: We are thrilled to announce that we will begin our theatrical release of the film on November 28th in New York City and then December 11th in Los Angeles. This is fantastic news because a theatrical release is *extremely* rare for documentaries. The directors will be in attendance for the New York and Los Angeles theatrical premieres to participate in Q&As and lead fascinating discussions on radical longevity and indie filmmaking.
We got an outstanding review in On Milwaukee, when the film played at the Milwaukee Film Festival. Maxim wrote a great review (while omitting ½ of the directorial team!). Also, friend of The Immortalists Patrick Brice (director of CREEP) gave us a shout out in Sac Town Magazine.
Onward and upward! http://www.facebook.com/theimmortalists

This week we are offering a holiday triple feature of entertainment for the entire family:
Frosty The Snowman
(“that old discarded magic hat” the kids found, that brought Frosty to life belonged to an evil magician who now wants his hat back, and who will do anything to get it! Starring Jimmy Durante)
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
(A timeless story that all kids can relate to.) What kid hasn’t at one time or another shared Rudolph’s feelings of being the odd one in the room.
A Christmas Story
(Ralphie, a young boy growing up in the '40's, dreams of owning that one special present that he must have or surely will explode, a “Red Rider BB gun.”) What kid young or old can’t relate to the feelings of wanting something so badly you can’t think of anything else?
You were so obvious while you thought you were being so cleverly subtle as you manipulated and maneuvered
every conversation or situation around as an opportunity to let everyone know what you wanted Santa to bring. This film is sure to bring back a lot of fond memories.
We do offer the following notice: We are presenting these films as education, entertainment, and as a nostalgic somewhat historical tribute to the fond memories of our childhood days of innocence and faith in miracles.
Plan to join us and as is our policy, we won’t be selling popcorn at the door you need to bring your own! LOL
