8.21.08 -- Tomorrow
The national rollout of I.O.U.S.A. draws near. A special message now from Addison:
The premiere of I.O.U.S.A. is just a day away and the excitement continues to build. Movie theatres are already selling out for this one-night event, so we urge you to click hereto buy your tickets now.
As I’ve explained before, the live event on Aug. 21 is our one chance to fill up theatres and have the critical message of the film heard. To help put “butts in seats,” the discussion following the film will be broadcast by satellite to a theatre near you. It will feature Warren Buffett, Pete Peterson and Dave Walker. Also on the panel will be William Niskanen, chairman of the Cato Institute, and Bill Novelli, CEO of AARP. It will be moderated by CNBC’s Becky Quick. It promises to be an exceptional and lively event.
If we’re successful on Thursday night, the film that will be showing in 400 U.S. cities will have a much greater chance of rolling out to theatres across the country. That’s why we need you, along with your friends and colleagues, to come out and see the film.
I’ve included the link to the trailer for you to watch and pass on to your friends.
If you do come out, we’ve promised to give you a special thank-you gift in return. This is not just a token of appreciation; it is something of real value, something that you can use to make better personal investment decisions.
If you come out to see I.O.U.S.A. during the Aug. 21 event, we’ll give you a complimentary subscription to our flagship publication, Strategic Investment. We’d normally charge $99 for an annual subscription, but if you come out to support the film, you can have it free of charge for one year.
Here’s what you do… After you’ve purchased your tickets, forward a copy of the confirmation e-mail you receive to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll give you a complimentary one-year subscription. If you’re already a subscriber to Strategic Investment, we’ll extend your subscription for another a year. If you’re a Reserve Member, we have an additional gift reserved for you. Forward your confirmation e-mail to find out what it is.
The widespread attention the movie is attracting is thrilling. And we want you to be part of it. That’s why we’re asking our loyal readers to come out for this one-night-only exclusive event.
