Drum Corps International and Regal Cinemedia have added Albuquerque, N.M., and Tampa, Fla. to the list of theaters broadcasting the 2004 World Championship Quarterfinals LIVE on Thursday, Aug. 5. Tampa's Citrus Park Stadium 20 and Albuquerque's Cottonwood Theater Stadium 10 are now online for the purchase of tickets for this unprecedented drum corps event. The DCI Cinema LIVE program will include the full performances of the top 17 corps from the World Championship Quarterfinals at Denver's INVESCO Field at Mile High. It will also include highlights of the seven corps scheduled to perform before the live program. Quarterfinal performance order will be determined based on scores from the DCI Midwestern Championship in Indianapolis the previous weekend. The program begins at 7 p.m. Eastern, 6 p.m. Central, 5 p.m. Mountain and 4 p.m. Pacific. Broadcast in high-definition video, DCI Cinema LIVE will feature a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack designed to place you right in the middle of the crowd at INVESCO Field.
