Los Angeles, CA – Wednesday, August 10, 2005
T-LINE TV and Pillar Entertainment today announced the theatrical release and world premier of Sandy Marks’ Manhattan Comedy Night exclusively at the Pavilion theatre in Brooklyn, New York on Tuesday, August 30th at 8:00 pm. Manhattan Comedy Night brings the best and brightest big apple comics to the big screen in high definition.
The evening of comedy was captured at a standing room-only event at the Community Theatre in Morristown, New Jersey and features 5 New York City standup comedians: Sandy Marks, Lynne Koplitz, Dov Davidoff, Keith Robinson, and Andrew Kennedy. The five participating comedians have collectively appeared on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend & Tough Crow”, HBO’s Comedy In The Park, The King of Queens, Chapelle’s Show and NBC’s Last Call With Carson Daly.
Hollywood has just approved the new industry standard for high definition movies which was strictly adhered to by the T-LINE TV production. Manhattan Comedy Night is among the first alternative entertainment content that is going to become a mainstay in movie theaters for years to come.
It was captured and produced with the cinema-grade technology usually only associated with major studio releases. The show was shot with five high definition cameras before an enthusiastic live audience and is presented exclusively at the Pavilion theatre in 1080/24p cinema grade high definition using DLP projection technology and was directed by Todd Ehrlich of T-LINE TV. AccessIT is providing managed services and satellite delivery for Pillar.
After the première, Pillar entertainment will then distribute the movie to the rest of the country via the Access Integrated Technologies (AMEX: AIX) digital content delivery system.
