The DCI World Championship Prelims will return to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis this August, and for the 14th year in a row, that kickoff event can be watched live in hundreds of movie theaters nationwide.

“Big, Loud and Live 14” will bring the performances of the top-15 scoring corps (from a field of 39) competing at the DCI World Championship Prelims on Thursday, August 10, to more than 600 select movie theaters across the United States.

“DCI continues to bring top drum corps talent from across the U.S. to give their all in this elite competition,” Fathom Events VP of Programming Kymberli Frueh said. “This long-standing partnership has been a pillar among Fathom's diverse offerings, and we are thrilled to continue bringing Marching Music's Major League™ to cinema audiences nationwide.”
