Drum Corps International's spring cinema event, "The Countdown," is coming to movie theaters across America on Wednesday, May 13, and you'll want to be there! Presented by National Cinemedia's Fathom Events, this year's program will be shown at more than 400 theaters in 45 states and Washington, D.C.
"This is our 10th theater event, spanning the 'Big, Loud and Live' cinecast of the World Championship Quarterfinals and our annual 'Countdown' events each spring," says John DeNovi, DCI director of business development. "Thanks to popular demand, this show will be presented in more locations than ever before."
To select the six corps performances that will be shown up on the big screen on May 13, more than 15,000 drum corps fans cast ballots during a two-round voting process that took place at the beginning of March. Narrowed from a field of 72 World Championship performances from 2003 to 2008, the 2004 Cavaliers, 2004 Santa Clara Vanguard, 2006 Blue Devils, 2007 Bluecoats, 2007 Carolina Crown and the 2008 Phantom Regiment came out as the top selections. Tickets for "The Countdown" will go on sale starting Friday, April 13 through FathomEvents.com.
