Save a Dolla!

(These are Sunday’s audiences)


Movieland tickets are discounted TODAY


I’ve decided to do a Q&A at tonite’s 7pm show.

Come save a few bucks and celebrate Dirtwoman!

 I will NOT be doing Q&A this weekend. Other than unannounced/surprise visits, this will be my last.

Remember that the run has been extended thru AT LEAST February 6 and longer if this weekend does well, so tell your friends!



Everybody wants a piece of Donnie

Even CultureWorks considers Donnie “culture!” They included the movie in their weekly email blast as a “Pick!




Friday morning at 8:05am, Jason Roop will be on Richmond’s Morning News with John Reid to talk about the movie’s opening as part of their weekly events coverage. That’s on WRVA (1140 AM / 96.1 FM).



Online news site River City Rapids included the movie in this week’s blast.




Tickets are on sale now (click here).

Remember that I’ll be there to greet my fellow Dirtwoman fans at all 3 shows on Friday and Saturday (4:20, 7:00, 9:40), PLUS I’ll be doing Q&A (and exit interviews) after the 7pm show both nites. Hope to see u there!


Run clarification and ticket link

Because of the showing at the Byrd in April, people assume that this new run at Movieland is a one-nite only affair.


This is a typical run like any movie. It’ll play for at least a week and longer if ticket sales are good.

IMPORTANT! Many people expect it’ll show at the Criterion Cinema (across the parking lot), which usually houses the art films. Donnie has been assigned a place of honor: Cinema 1 at Movieland!

Here’s the link to tickets.

Thanks for helping spread the word. (Remember, I’ll be there Fri and Sat nites for Q&A after the 7pm shows)

Coming Soon Indeed!

It’s only one week til Donnie makes his return visit and Dirtwoman’s already on the Movieland marquee!

Meanwhile, the media coverage is heating up:

On Wednesday, I visited with Jessica Noll at CBS-6 on Virginia This Morning.


Today I’ll be a guest on the longtime news and public affairs stalwart Open Source RVA to chat with my friend Don Harrison about my experiences on the film festival circuit. That’s at noon on WRIR (97.3FM) and on their podcast after 1pm today. CHECK HERE TO LISTEN (my interview is about 30 minutes in).

I didn’t make it on the air but NBC-12 posted this notice on their site.

Meanwhile, 2 of the most prominent LGBT organizations have posted announcements!

Listen for my sponsorship announcements all next week on VPM-FM.

Tickets are already on sale for the run, which starts next Friday, January 24 and runs for at least a week (longer if ticket sales are good). I plan to be at the 7pm shows on Friday and Saturday nite for Q&A after the film (and to greet fellow Dirtwoman fans).
