At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”
Back in 2011, the board had several threads discussing the movie Answer This! It was filmed on campus and was in limited release. I never saw it but wanted to. Today I was poking around Netflix and stumbled on it. The story isn't great but it's not bad. The setting is tremendous.
If you are looking for some light entertainment with a Michigan spin, you should be pleased.
"Answer This" is a movie shot in Ann Arbor in 2009, starring Ralph Williams. It's being picked up for regional distribution and has some premiere events this weekend around the state. It features scenes shot at the UM-WMU game in 2009, and was written and directed by an alum. (Full disclosure: I work for Celebration! Cinema, where tomorrow's premiere is hosted.)
There are a few upcoming premiere screenings worth mentioning:
- Tonight at Emagine in Royal Oak with Dhani Jones in attendance.
Friday 10/14 at Celebration! Cinema Grand Rapids North
Food, drinks, and trivia in the Wave Room at 6:30. An 8:00pm screening will be followed by a Q&A with the writer/director.
Saturday 10/15 also at Celebration! Grand Rapids North:
Watch "Funny or Die" clips before the movie, screen the movie, then a Q&A with Chris Farah and President of Funny Or Die Mike Farah.
- More cities like Traverse City and Ann Arbor are listed at the movie website.
Also, Dr. Spaceman is in it.
Did any of you attend the screening at the Michigan Theatre? Or, are you going in Grand Rapids tomorrow?
