“Surrounding Game” screening updates

Sunday July 2, 2017

The Evanston Go Club has arranged their very own screening of The Surrounding Game. “It was so easy to set up!” said club president Mark 2017.07.01_surrounding-game-evanstonRubenstein. “I just followed the instructions under the film’s Host A Screening section, and the theater accepted our request. The only requirement is that we have to sell at least 73 tickets by July 5, or the screening will be canceled, in which case all tickets will be refunded.” At presstime 59 tickets still need to be sold; click here for tickets. The movie will be shown Wednesday, July 12, 2017 from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM at Century 12 Theatre, 1715 Maple Ave. Evanston, IL 60201.

“This is Evanston’s main movie theatre, and it’s really nice; stadium seating, free parking, and they sell beer and wine that you can bring into the theatre if you want to,” says Rubenstein. “Tell your friends and family about this unique event. It’s not just for go players; the film was made in order to reach a wider audience and introduce more people to the game. Remember, it won’t happen without your support, so reserve your tickets now!” said Rubenstein. “And for those of you who don’t live in the Chicagoland area and would like to promote the film, check out the website. It’s not often we have the opportunity to reach a mainstream audience like this, so let’s take advantage of it!” For any questions, please contact Mark Rubenstein at or 847-869-6020.

Update: The Surrounding Game will screen July 18 in Lehi, UT at Adobe from 12pm-1:30pm. The address is 3900 Adobe Way, Lehi, UT 84043. Contact: Devin Flake,
