Look for 3rd expansion of markets for ‘The Undefeated’ at end of month

According to The Desert Sun, The Undefeated will debut in California’s Coachella Valley Friday, July 29:

Film distributors on Monday notified Cinemas Palme d’Or that they’d open “The Undefeated” this coming weekend — only to decide hours later that the local premiere would be pushed back a week.

The local debut will now be held during the July 29 weekend in Palm Desert, a Republican- dominated city that counts Palin’s own in-laws as part-time residents.

“We were anxious for the opportunity to play something completely different than what we usually do,” Cinémas Palme d’Or co-owner Brian Tabor said.

“I don’t think there’s as many opportunities for a product that perhaps reaches a more Republican or conservative base. Documentary filmmakers tend to go with more of a liberal stance with the subjects they cover.”

Apparently, the Palm Desert opening will be part of the third market expansion for “The Undefeated” in as many weeks, a strategy which seems to be right in line with director Stephen Bannon’s intentions for his documentary:

“Our objective is very simple⎯ to bring this film to every market and every corner of the country; starting with a limited theatrical release and then through an aggressive broader distribution strategy including streaming video, on-demand access and DVD.”

The Coachella Valley is the agricultural and recreational desert valley of Southern California, with a population of 600,000. Its four largest cities are Indio, Palm Springs, Cathedral City and Palm Desert.

Teens flock to California church to hear Bristol Palin

The Whittier Daily News reports that teens from across the Southwest made their way to Our Saviour Lutheran Church in Arcadia, California Saturday to hear Bristol Palin speak about the dangers facing today’s youth:

The speech was part of Lovefest, an annual two-day church event that focuses on teens and values. The event held in a church tent familiar to the revival circuit, where youngsters listened to Palin’s speech.

From there, the children broke into smaller classes to focus on a array of teen issues – from dating to safely navigating the Internet.

Palin was brought in to serve as a role model and to talk candidly about her experience as a teenage mom. Children came from across Southern California and from as far away as Nevada, church officials said.

“She came right out and said, `I’ve been criticized and called an hypocrite because I was taking a stance on abstinence and I said I don’t want you to go through this,”‘ said Dave Sweeney, co-founder of the Love Fest. “She implored young people to not to listen to those who say abstinence is not a big deal.”

[…]

“We didn’t want this to turn into a political event,” said Roger Sonnenberg, pastor of Our Saviour Lutheran Church.

But there was no denying the effect of Palin’s star power on the children.

“I liked her story and the way she presented her opinion without forcing her ideas on us,” said Haley Gould, 17, of Glendora.
