Brad McHargue, who runs the local entertainment site MileHighCinema.com, is well-known to Fons PR, which represents Tugg, because of his annual involvement in Fantastic Fest in Austin, and seemed a natural to create a test Tugg event.
McHargue chose Extraterrestrial because of its glowing reviews at Fantastic Fest 2011. "It had a slight theatrical release in mid-June and Denver just wasn't getting it," he says. "The director is a great guy -- I've met him before -- and it seemed like a great genre film for the first Denver screening."
Tugg makes it easy to set up your own screening and spread the joys of independent and genre films. "It's very low-key -- a couple of quick e-mails, and boom," says McHargue. "It's a fun way to display a movie you love for movie fans and your friends. At least for me, I love bringing films to people who are generally casual film-goers who might not see them. Extraterrestrial is a great example of that because it's a sci-fi romantic comedy."
Tomorrow's showing includes a special Skype Q&A with the director and viewing of one of his short films. Tickets are $9; find more information here.
