Watch D&D Live in Movie Theaters Nationwide!

As a life long gamer I’m continually blown away how year after year the “stigma” of table top role playing games is not only being subverted, but outright reversed in our pop culture driven society.
Everyone seems to want to get in on the action and now just watching other people play via various webcasts on places like Twitch and Youtube has become a form of entertainment.
On September 4th Dungeons and Dragons will be taking this to the next level as they will be broadcasting their game on the big screen at select local theaters. Check out the press release and trailer below!

Each year at PAX West in Seattle, thousands of Dungeons & Dragons fans crowd into a music hall to watch people play D&D together. Some wait in line for hours because they know there’s something special about being in Benaroya Hall when Chris Perkins runs the Acquisitions Incorporated gang through another zany adventure. The players feed on the energy of audience and the atmosphere is electric – now D&D fans across the country will get to experience that electricity up-close-and-personal when D&D is broadcast live to movie theaters nationwide for the first time.
On September 4 at 6 p.m. PT, in partnership with Fathom Events, D&D aficionados across the country will be able to go to their local movie theater and sit with an audience full of fans to watch the premier D&D performance of the year, as hundreds of theaters across the U.S. will be showing “Dungeons & Dragons Live from PAX West.” Tickets can be purchased beginning today, August 5, by visiting or at participating theater box offices. For the full list of locations visit the Fathom Events website – and you don’t need to wait in line to snag a ticket to this exclusive event!
In addition to experiencing Acquisitions Incorporated in your local cinema, each event attendee will receive an exclusive D&D adventure module. The 32-page booklet contains a four-hour adventure including tons of Dungeon Master tips to help new players as they are offered the chance to become interns of Acquisitions Incorporated. The best part is that the adventure follows the upcoming D&D storyline Storm King’s Thunder and can be used to introduce players to the giant threat wreaking havoc across the land.
Let us know if you’re planning to attend or what you think about this sort of thing. It’s pretty unprecedented!
