Atlas Shrugged Movie Train Barrels into Washington D.C.

Atlas heads to the Hill amidst Wisconsin Teachers Union controversy and Libya’s internal meltdown.

Culver City, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 28, 2011 - “The Strike” Productions and The Atlas Society announced today they will be taking the ATLAS SHRUGGED film to the East Coast for two pre-release screenings - the first to be held in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, followed up by a Thursday showing in New York City.

“The Nation’s Capitol is where this film should be seen,” remarks film producer Harmon Kaslow. “There’s never been a more relevant time for the movie’s release. From Wisconsin’s teacher’s Union woes to Libya’s dictator’s demise, it’s as if current events were ripped right from the pages of the book.”

Kaslow adds, “We unveiled the trailer in DC two and half weeks ago and it received more than 750,000 views on YouTube. The interest in the film has been tremendous.”
“It’s been a fifty-three year journey to bring Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged to the silver screen,” remarks The Atlas Society founder David Kelley. “I saw the completed film in Los Angeles and found it to be true to the spirit and message of Rand’s novel as well as uncannily timely.”

The exclusive events will be held at:

Landmark E Street Theater
555 11th Street NW
Washington D.C. 20004
WHEN: 2 pm on Wednesday, March 2nd.

Tribeca Cinemas
54 Varick Street
New York City, NY 10013
WHEN: 6 pm on Thursday, March 3rd.

Fans of the book are encouraged to show up at both events as a limited number of seats will be reserved for “fans only.”

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