Experience A Special Screening of The New BMW Film With Its Creators!
You’re invited to a very special screening of the new BMW Film “The Escape” at a spectacular venue: The beautifully restored, historic Heights Theater. “The Escape” is an action-packed salute to the Fifteenth Anniversary of the groundbreaking BMW Films. Created in 2001, the original eight short films starred Clive Owen as a mysterious driver for hire and featured a who’s who of top Hollywood directors and actors.
Presenting the new film will be its Executive Producer, Bruce Bildsten. Bruce led the team who created of the original films at the legendary Minneapolis ad agency Fallon in 2001 and was invited by BMW, along with former Fallon Producer Brian DiLorenzo, to create the big budget new film. Joining them will be Minneapolis director Patrick Pierson who filmed all the behind the scenes of the massive production. Bruce will not only share the new film on the big screen, but also revisit a few of the originals, as well as share behind the scenes content.
“The Escape” stars Clive Owen along with Jon Bernthal, Dakota Fanning and Vera Farmiga. Directed by Oscar-nominated director Neill Blomkamp, the stunts were coordinated the legendary Guy Norris. Like Norris’ “Mad Max: Fury Road”, “The Escape’s” extraordinary stunts were created with minimal special effects. And all of Owen’s driving was done by the Chief Driving Instructor at BMW’s Performance Driving School, Matt Mullins.
It will be an evening of BMW at its very best in a very special venue. Don’t miss it.

We will be meeting at The Heights Theater at 7pm, March 23 from 7 to 9pm.  The event is free and open to everyone.  It would be helpful, but not necessary, to express your intention to attend on our Face Book page at:  https://www.facebook.com/northstarbmw/
