Atlas Shrugged Takes it to Capitol Hill

Members of Congress gather in Sam Rayburn Building for Private Screening

Culver City, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 02, 2011 - Today on Capitol Hill, at 9:00 am (EST) sharp, “The Strike” Productions’ Harmon Kaslow hosted a private screening of the upcoming political drama ATLAS SHRUGGED PART I open exclusively to members of Congress and their staff.

“Even though Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged is more than 50 years old, the film is hauntingly relevant to what’s happening today.” says producer Harmon Kaslow.

“I can’t think of a more perfect venue than the Rayburn Building where its main entrance is guarded by two ten foot marble statutes symbolizing Spirit of Justice and Majesty of Law.” Continued Kaslow, “Given the current political climate, screening the movie right in the middle of where the U.S. House of Representatives operates brings the movie directly to the audience that needs to see it most - the U.S. Congress.”

The Strike is hosting a number of invitation only screenings of Atlas Shrugged prior to its theatrical release on April 15, 2011 in eleven US cities including a screening in D.C. later today and New York City on March 3, 2011.

ATLAS SHRUGGED PART I, a movie adapted from Part I of Ayn Rand’s epic novel "Atlas Shrugged", is scheduled to open in limited release in the USA on April 15, 2011. For more information, visit
