One Night Only Screening Event Hits Movie Theaters in Select Markets August 17
New York, N.Y., Aug. 9, 2017 – Screenvision Media, in partnership with Gunpowder & Sky, today announced a one night only screening event in dozens of U.S. cities for McLaren, the captivating story of Bruce McLaren, the legendary racing champion, designer, engineer and founder of the iconic supercar that bears his name. Theater information and tickets can be found at https://www.mclarenfilmusa.com with additional locations added daily.
The name McLaren is synonymous with motor racing excellence, and stands today as a symbol for automotive superiority. Yet what is less known is the brand’s origins. McLaren recounts the New Zealander’s life, from his humble beginnings at his father’s auto shop in Auckland, to revolutionizing Formula One racing by becoming the youngest driver ever to win a Grand Prix, to his death at 32. Featuring interviews from his closest friends and family members, the documentary is an unprecedented window into the life of a true genius.
“Auto enthusiasts across the country have been eagerly awaiting the release of McLaren, and we’re so pleased to be pairing up with Gunpowder & Sky to bring this documentary to the big screen this summer,” said Bernadette McCabe, SVP, Business Strategy, Screenvision Media. “With lots of original racing footage and interviews, this documentary will transport you back in time and leave you feeling both moved and inspired.”
“We’re thrilled to offer automotive enthusiasts, documentary film fans, and all filmbuffs this special opportunity to see Bruce McLaren’s compelling story in their local theaters,” said Janet Brown, Gunpowder & Sky’s EVP Distribution. “Bruce is an automotive icon whose story is truly inspirational.”
McLaren will hit theaters in select markets on August 17, 2017. For additional information, film trailers and tickets, please visit https://www.mclarenfilmusa.com/
