We Have a NEW Opening Date
(And New is Always Better, Right?)
Hi Everyone,

Ben here again. Have you ever had a dream where everyone is watching you while you screw everything up, and a deep sinking dread is all you can feel, so much that you can't lift your arms or move your legs very fast? Well, I'm living that dream right now. I got a little over zealous in naming the Grand Opening date last time, and we aren't going to be able to get all our inspections in time. So I'm defaulting to Michael's infinite wisdom and pushing our opening date back to Oct. 26th. We will just have our soft opening when we can clear all our inspections, so we don't have an exact date on that yet. The good think about this news is that we have a little more time to polish the place up, and put together an even bigger Grand Opening. The marching band is still happening, the live music is still happening, the circus is still happening. But now we will have dancing bears, trapeze artists with flame throwers, and Gandalf's dragon fireworks! Well, maybe not the bears. It'll be a great party regardless.

The funny thing about having to push this back, is pushing the date back is EXACTLY what I have been trying to prevent. That just goes to show, the harder you work to prevent something, the more likely it is to happen, which also proves that we live in the matrix and nothing is real.

From longtime fans Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio and filmed with extraordinary access over the course of more than two years, MAY IT LAST is an intimate portrait of the acclaimed North Carolina band The Avett Brothers, charting their decade-and-a-half rise, while chronicling their present-day collaboration with famed producer Rick Rubin on the their multi-Grammy-nominated album "True Sadness," which was released on American Recordings/Republic Records. With the recording process as a backdrop, the film depicts a lifelong bond and unique creative partnership, as band members undergo marriage, divorce, parenthood, illness, and the challenges of the music business. More than just a music documentary, MAY IT LAST is a meditation on family, love, and the passage of time.

For 10 idyllic years, young Mija (An Seo Hyun) has been caretaker and constant companion to Okja-a massive animal and an even bigger friend-at her home in the mountains of South Korea. But that changes when a family-owned multinational conglomerate Mirando Corporation takes Okja for themselves and transports her to New York, where image obsessed and self-promoting CEO Lucy Mirando (Tilda Swinton) has big plans for Mija's dearest friend. With no particular plan but single-minded in intent, Mija sets out on a rescue mission, but her already daunting journey quickly becomes more complicated when she crosses paths with disparate groups of capitalists, demonstrators and consumers, each battling to control the fate of Okja...while all Mija wants to do is bring her friend home. Deftly blending genres, humor, poignancy and drama, Bong Joon Ho (Snowpiercer, The Host) begins with the gentlest of premises-the bond between man and animal-and ultimately creates a distinct and layered vision of the...
