NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Run Rampant and D&E Entertainment (www.DandEentertainment.com) announced today, a schedule of movie theatre "premiere events" to launch the theatrical and VOD release of Run Rampant's "$ELLEBRITY," a documentary feature film that explores how fame has changed from the highly-structured studio system to the current free-for-all press and paparazzi frenzy, while also addressing important issues such as freedom of the press and the right to privacy. The theatrical premieres are in select cities including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Dallas, Phoenix and Washington, D.C. on Friday, January 11, 2013. Additionally, $ELLEBRITY opens theatrically at the Chinese Theatres in Los Angeles, CA on Friday, January 11, 2013.
In $ELLEBRITY, which premiered at the 2012 SXSW Film Festival in Austin, TX, renowned Rock & Roll photographer Kevin Mazur has pulled together an impressive team for his first feature-length documentary about the changing face of celebrity and the many ways that the media has conveyed, defined and even demeaned what it means to be famous today. Candid interviews with Jennifer Aniston, Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, Salma Hayek, Sara Jessica Parker and Kid Rock among others help to give a glimpse into the lives of those on the front lines of our increasingly obsessive world of pop culture celebrity.
"We were intrigued with Kevin Mazur's film. The documentary $ELLEBRITY gives the viewer unparalleled insight into the view of celebrity and how it has changed through the years. Exploring society's fascination with pop culture, it also addresses freedom of the press, the degradation of our hard news, and those caught in the camera's eye," said Doug Kluthe and Evan Saxon, Co-Founders of D&E Entertainment.
"I am so excited to share this film with a National audience - because 'We' are steering the ship, so we might as well take a look at the direction we've got it pointed in!" said Tricia Nolan, Producer of $ELLEBRITY.
