Coming to Admiral Theater: “Running the Sahara,” w/ special guest

One week from tonight, there’s a special screening at West Seattle’s Admiral Theater: The documentary “Running the Sahara,” a documentary produced and narrated by actor Matt Damon, directed by Oscar winner James Moll. According to information shared by Dinah Brein McClellan from The Admiral, it’s about three ultra-marathoners’ bid to run the entire length of the Sahara Desert – 4,300 miles, six countries – 50 miles a day. One of the athletes, Charlie Engle, will be at The Admiral for audience Q/A right after the screening. It’s at 6:30 next Wednesday night (March 10), and tickets are available online for $25 – that’s $10 less than the price at the door – here’s where to buy them; the price also includes a DVD of the film.

    Highly recommended. Saw in on a HDTV but I’m sure a “big screen” would even be better.

    50 miles a day, not 111. Looks amazing nonetheless. There is a very compelling trailer on the website

      Can’t find the news release I summarized, thought it said 111 miles/day but looking online, many more sources say 111 days, which makes more sense, thanks, fixing – TR
