That’s right, 3D screenings of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 followed by Toy Story 3 are all happening on June 17th! Twenty cities across the country will hold special ‘triple feature’ screenings and admission is available now!
Click here for a graphic that shows the list of participating theatres. If you see your area and would like to attend, I’d recommend getting tickets right now before they’re sold out. This may be the first and last time that all three features screen back-to-back in theatres.
Now here’s another first. Disney/Pixar debuts a new service on Twitter which allows Trending Topics to be purchased. For this reason, Toy Story 3 appears on the list with a yellow Promoted tag next to it. Once clicked, real-time TS3 mentions show up, as with other Trends.
This is part of Twitter’s initiative to make a profit from the website. I can see why Twitter would do it, but surely Toy Story 3 would land a trending spot this weekend without having to pay. I’ll remind you that Twitter’s current Chief Financial Officer, Ali Rowghani, used to hold that position at Pixar. More details can be found on TechCrunch.
