$5 Cover Premiere Finalized



Indie Memphis director Erik Jambor announced today that details have been finalized for the Memphis premiere of Craig Brewer's $5 Cover. Brewer's 15-part MTV New Media series will be shown in its entirety at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Thursday, April 30th at Malco's Paradiso theater. The screening is being co-sponsored by Malco and the Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commission and will serve as a benefit for Indie Memphis.

Tickets for the screenings are $10 and go on sale Friday, April 17th at IndieMemphis.com. Though tickets could also be available at the box office the night of the screening, organizers are anticipating a sellout and are suggesting that those interested in attending get their tickets early. Brewer and other $5 Cover guests will be on hand to introduce both screenings.

$5 Cover will launch online and on MTV the next day. The TV version of the series will combine three episodes into one half-hour block and will broadcast on MTV at 11 p.m. each Friday in May.
