Awake: The Life of Yogananda Screening in Seattle

Awake Movie PosterI’ve signed up to organize a screening of Awake: The Life of Yogananda here in Seattle!

The screening will take place on Thursday, February 26, 2015 MONDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2015 and is brought here through Gathr. The way it works is that at least 65 tickets must be reserved for them to bring the film here. If the screening does not “tip,” then no ones card is charged and the screening does not take place.

Please spread the word about the screening and reserve your ticket now! I would love to see this film on the big screen and am excited that Gathr gives independent films a chance to be seen the way they should.

Monday, February 23, 2015 – 7:30PM
