Academy Award-nominated actor Woody Harrelson will direct and star in an unprecedented live feature film event, Lost In London. Harrelson, who wrote and co-produced the feature film, will also co-star with Owen Wilson and Willie Nelson. This first-of-its-kind film event will screen live in U.S. movie theaters, giving audiences the unique opportunity to watch a film shot in real time.
Loosely based on a crazy night full of real-life events, Lost In London follows Harrelson — playing himself — as he struggles to get home to his family. Run-ins with royalty, old friends and the law all seem to conspire to keep Harrelson from succeeding.
“I’ve always loved theater and film and wanted to find the best way to merge the two. When I decided to shoot this in real time I realized it wasn’t quite like true theatre because the one piece missing was a live audience. By broadcasting the film live as it’s being shot, I hope to truly blend the excitement of live theater with the scale and scope of film,” said Harrelson.
This special cinema event — presented by Fathom Events — will be broadcast live in movie theaters nationwide for one night on Thursday, Jan. 19, 2017 at 9:00 PM EST. Following the feature presentation, Harrelson will participate in a live Q&A.
“Harrelson continues to surprise his fans with new and exciting ideas — Lost In London might be the boldest one yet,” Fathom Events CEO John Rubey noted. “Fathom is thrilled to be part of this revolutionary project to bring a live feature film, paired with an exclusive Q&A, to audiences nationwide.”
Tickets for the Lost In London event can be purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in more than 550 select movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network.
