From this morning's e-mail:
Three days before the highly anticipated series finale of “Lost,” fans of ABC’s award-winning global television phenomenon can watch co-creators and executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof in a TimesTalks LIVE event in 454 select movie theaters nationwide. Moderated by New York Times entertainment editor Lorne Manly, Times Talks Live: LOST will cover the challenges faced by the creators to craft a series finale that would satisfy them as storytellers and the show’s legions of fans. The event will include a teaser from the upcoming final episode and an interactive Q & A session with fans. Prior to the event, ticketholders can submit their question for consideration at email@example.com.
Additional details after the jump. Participating theaters include Tinseltown in North Canton and Regal Montrose. I assembled a list here. Looks as if the price is about $12.50.
The event will be broadcasted live, in high definition from The TimesCenter in New York City in front of a sold-out audience on Thursday, May 20 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern / 7:00 p.m. Central / 6:00 p.m. Mountain / 8:00 p.m. Pacific (tape delayed).
