SonicsGate: Go See This Movie

If you haven't yet heard about or seen SonicsGate: Requiem for a Team, it is a spectacular, independently-produced, full-length documentary about the move of the Seattle SuperSonics to Oklahoma City.  Everything is there: the local politics, the fan rallies, the history of the organization, and a great local soundtrack.  An absolute must-see for any NBA fan and, specifically, any fan of a smaller-market franchise.  

SonicsGate was originally released online at sonicsgate.org and received rave reviews from around the blogosphere.  This weekend, the movie is making its debut in Portland at the Beer and Movie Fest.  The movie will be screened at the Bagdad Theatre in SE Portland at 7:15PM Saturday night.  Tickets are just $3.  

Director Adam Brown emailed last night to encourage Blazers fans to check it out and to say...

We're all about Northwest basketball and hopefully renewing the I-5 Rivalry here soon. Blazers fans have shown a lot of support for the Save Our Sonics cause...    

Go Blazers! Great pickup with Camby BTW.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

"Sonicsgate" selected to screen at Beer And Movie Fest in Portland
Independent Seattle documentary continues strong grassroots run

February 15, 2010 - SEATTLE, Wash - "Sonicsgate: Requiem For A Team," the critically acclaimed documentary chronicling the true story of the Seattle SuperSonics' tragic demise, has been selected for the Beer And Movie Fest (BAM) in Portland, Oregon.  

"Sonicsgate" will screen at the Bagdad Theater & Pub (3702 SE Hawthorne Blvd.) on Saturday, Feb. 20 at 7:15 P.M. Tickets are $3 apiece and available at the Bagdad Theater Box Office. 

BAM is a two-week, four-venue, 50-film screening festival in Portland from Feb. 10 - 26 showcasing the best Northwest brews alongside notable independent and mainstream films.

"Sonicsgate" director Jason Reid said he expects a packed house at Bagdad, as the Northwest community unites to celebrate the Sonics' rich history and learn why the team ultimately left town.  

"As our I-5 rivals, TrailBlazers fans have been among the most supportive people in our fight for the Sonics," Reid said. "All those battles between Seattle and Portland going back so many years - from Walton and Sikma to Drexler and Payton - it's a cultural centerpiece that was stolen from the Northwest, and we have to get it back." 

The Sonicsgate crew will be in Portland handing out flyers at the Rose Garden Feb. 19 before the Blazers game and the BAM screening on Feb. 20.
