The Typewriter film screening in L.A. starting May 10

From Christopher Lockett:

The film is getting a short theatrical release here in LA at the Downtown Independent Theater. Very proud that the film is screening at that particular theater. It's got 222 stadium seats, sells craft beer and wine and is very indie friendly. This film is about as "indie" as cinema gets. This is remarkably good news to me - the odds of a sub- $10K independently produced, hour-long documentary getting any kind of theatrical release are never in the filmmaker's favor. We always figured the film would reach its audience online and on television. A theatrical release is literally unheard of for such a film. 

The link to the Facebook event page is below. It's a public event, so the page should be viewable even to people who aren't on Facebook.
