Tugg — Bringing Indie Films to a Theater Near You

posted by Nell Minow

You love movies, and love to read about those intriguing indies that somehow never make it to your local multiplex.  You’d like to see them in a theater, not on a laptop.  A company called Tugg has the answer.  You select one of the 1100 films from the Tugg library, everything from brand-new indies like “Bless Me, Ultima” and “Free Angela” to beloved oldies like “Road House” and “Rudy.”  If you can sell enough tickets (it can be as low as 60), your screening will be confirmed at a theater near you.  If you are not able to sell enough, the screening is cancelled and you don’t have to pay for it.  I just checked, and there are four upcoming Tugg screenings near me, including Tim Gordon‘s presentation of one of last year’s best films, “Middle of Nowhere.”
