Last Unicorn Screening Tour News
On April 20, 2013 (Peter’s birthday!) Conlan Press launched a worldwide Last Unicorn Screening Tour. The premiere was held at San Francisco’s historic Castro Theater, in collaboration with the Cartoon Art Museum, and that night the museum threw a memorable birthday bash for Peter. Over 800 people came to the noon screening and the birthday party maxed out the museum’s legal occupancy. It was a great day.
In June 2013 the Tour picked up officially with a series of sold-out shows at Alamo Drafthouse locations in Texas, Missouri, and Colorado. The goal from there was to bring Peter S. Beagle and our gorgeous digital print of The Last Unicorn to as many people on the planet as we could. The plan included shows in all 50 states and at least 19 countries. By the end of May 2015 we’d successfully made it to 30 different American states and eight Canadian provinces, putting on nearly 300 screenings in 153 different cities, with Peter at every single event. Over 60,000 fans attended these shows, and 10,000-plus signed up as free tour members.
And that, sad to say, is where Version 1 of the tour has to call it quits.
In June 2015 it became clear that Peter was having memory problems that needed medical attention, so we immediately stopped booking new shows and canceled his personal appearances at the summer screenings already announced in Germany and Austria. As of this writing we now know that Peter is no longer up to the rigors of a heavy public schedule.
So all previous plans are off. After some reorganizing, Version 2 of the screening tour will go on, with Peter in a special video presentation before each show.
Between 1/1/2016 and 12/31/2016 The Last Unicorn will play in more than three thousand different theaters around the world. Advance tickets will be selling through this website, and everyone who buys one will get a free Screening Tour membership that comes with lots of discounts and special extras.
Specific locations and times are being worked out now and will be posted here and at www.lastunicorntour.com as finalized. If there’s a specific theater you’d like the Tour to come to, just email the theater’s name and location to Lisa Manoogian, Conlan Press’s Special Projects Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org).
