Good Ol' Freda Theatrical and DVD Release

Posted by Tripod Media (Creator)

Greetings to our Kickstarter Backers!

Magnolia Pictures and the Good Ol’ Freda team are very proud to announce the upcoming US theatrical release of Good Ol’ Freda, starting on September 6th in New York City and September 13th in Los Angeles, with a roll-out in other cities nationwide in the coming months. The film will also be available on Video on Demand (VOD) and iTunes starting September 6th as part of the Magnolia release.

Please check this link for updates on cities and playdates; it will be updated regularly over the following months here. If your city isn’t listed, please reach out to your local independent cinema and tell them to contact Magnolia Pictures about bringing the film to your town!

For our international backers, we are also working hard to bring Good Ol’ Freda to countries around the world. We should have some announcements for you about that in the fall.

We know those of you who contributed $25 and more are wondering about the status of your DVD reward. The DVD will be released in early December and will include some special extras that we are working hard on right now. We thank you for your patience and want you to know that you will be the first to receive the DVD when it is complete. Our team will send out an update in November requesting any address changes so that all contact information is current before we ship the DVDs.

We look forward to seeing many of you at The Fest for Beatle Fans in Chicago this weekend. Good Ol’ Freda will screen there on Saturday, August 10 at 5:15pm in front of thousands of Beatles fans - it promises to be one of the most amazing screenings yet! Freda Kelly and the entire team of filmmakers will be there. Be ready for an exciting evening that has been a long time coming!

Good Ol’ Freda had a whirlwind spring and summer, appearing at nearly 25 film festivals all over the US and Canada. Be sure to check the Good Ol’ Freda Facebook page for news about the film, and please join our newsletter for regular updates!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support!
