I recently sent an inquiry about possibly bringing Richard Linklater’s Boyhood to Tyler, TX. Earlier today I was surprised to receive this response back, while the information is disappointing for movie fans in East Texas (we’re used to it), I’m thankful for Ms. Hattaway taking the time to respond personally to my request.
Hi Mr. Leahy,
I saw that you requested the movie, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood. Your request was sent to my film broker and I am sorry to say that we will not be able to get this title. It was only limited to 337 screens for the entire United States. With Tyler being as small as we are, it will not be able to be shown here. I am very sorry and hopefully we can bring other titles you would like if they come available.
