Parents Television Council to Present Seal of Approval to "Everest"


ANN ARBOR, MI (October 26, 2006) – The Parents Television Council, the nation's most influential advocacy organization protecting children against entertainment sex, violence and profanity, will host a free screening of the giant screen film Everest. Everest, from MacGillivray Freeman Films, will be awarded with the PTC Entertainment Seal of Approval™ at this event.  The event will be held at The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre on Saturday morning November 4th from 10am to 11:30am.  The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre is located at 20900 Oakwood Blvd, Dearborn, Mich.  

PTC Southeast Michigan Chapter Director Rich Coleman thanked The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre and MacGillivray Freeman Films for making this screening free for local families. "This is a unique opportunity to experience Michigan's largest IMAX Theater for free with a movie that the entire family will enjoy.  Family entertainment is difficult to come by today, that is why the PTC works to partner with companies like MacGillivray Freeman Films.  Those who come to this event will learn about some of the good guys in the entertainment industry and what families can do to fight those who show no concern for the adult content they put forward when children are in the audience," said Coleman.

The movie is being shown free of charge thanks to the generosity of The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre, which will staff the event and waive entrance fees, and MacGillivray Freeman Films, which waived its usage fees for this event.

Those interested in attending should RSVP to Chapter Director Rich Coleman at (800) 849-5631 by November 1.
