NYC Premiere of CHEATIN' Last Night!

8 likes

Plymptoonians!

Well, it finally happened! We had our NYC premiere of CHEATIN' at the Village East Cinema last night and it was a huge success! The 7:20 p.m. showing was nearly sold-out and everyone stuck around after to meet me and get a free drawing. One person even bought one of our huge 27 x 40-inch theatrical one-sheet posters (we have few left. If you're interested, contact us)!

I will be at the theater again tonight and most of the week. It's only playing for one week, so if you live in NYC and want to see CHEATIN' on the BIG screen - the way it was meant to be seen - order your tickets today from https://www.citycinemas.com/villageeast/film/cheatin.

Also, as a reminder, I'll be doing a special FREE Kickstarter event on Tuesday, April 7 at 7:00 p.m. before going "on the road" with CHEATIN'. I'll be touring 15 cities before the film premieres exclusively on Vimeo on Demand on April 21.

I hope to meet as many of you as possible at these screenings, events, and Q&As. And always tell me you were a Kickstarter backer! I wouldn't be here without you, my fans! And I can't thank you enough.

P.S. I have a BIG announcement coming next week! Keep reading these updates or follow me on Twitter (@plymptoons) for the latest!

Thanks!

Bill
