Golf In The Kingdom is opening July 29th at the AMC Empire Theatre NYC in Times Square and August 6th at the Bagdad Cinema, Portland Oregon. Times Square is the busiest, most trafficked AMC theatre in the country. For a self-distributed film, this is a phenomenal coup. AMC is giving the Kingdom team one week guaranteed, extending will be based on how well they do. They are willing to take a risk and the exposure will be tremendous. The trailer should be ready in a few weeks and will start playing.Interview with Michael Murphy: PGA Tour, Sirius Radio. Mike Murphy and the gang will all be in NYC for a week; events, book signings, parties and some major press events. This is the time to get people into those seats. For example...George Stephanopoulos will be inviting the entire Greek population in NY (they are all relatives).
