DENVER, Oct. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Meow Wolf was founded in Santa Fe by dumpster-diving, fringe DIY artists who champion weirdness and challenge norms in the art world. "Meow Wolf: Origin Story" takes audiences through the meteoric rise of a penniless, anarchic art collective as it follows the seven eclectic founding members as they struggle with fracture, loss, success and failure over a decade. Now, moviegoers can meet these unique and captivating artists on the big screen for one big night across the U.S. as they share how the power of creativity can change the world.
Fathom Events presents "Meow Wolf: Origin Story" in more than 600 select movie theaters on Thursday, November 29 at 7:30 p.m. local time through Fathom's Digital Broadcast Network (DBN). For a complete list of theater locations, visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
Meow Wolf is an arts and entertainment group that creates immersive, interactive experiences to transport audiences of all ages into fantastic realms of story and exploration. The company's first exhibition is international sensation House Of Eternal Return, where guests discover a multidimensional mystery house with secret passages, portals to magical worlds and surreal, maximal and mesmerizing art exhibits. New locations will open next year in Las Vegas and Denver in 2020, with more major location announcements coming soon.
"Origin Story" begins when a group of artists in Santa Fe, frustrated by the lack of access to the art world, form their own collective. Their increasingly immersive, large-scale exhibitions crack open a profitable niche in the arts industry as they morph into a multi-million-dollar corporation and attract the support of Game of Thrones creator, George R.R. Martin, in just a few short years. The film is an artistic explosion in and of itself, throwing down a kaleidoscope of color, sound and music that brings this crazy, highly inspiring ride to life.
"Meow Wolf was a fringe Santa Fe collective that asked me to buy an old, long-empty bowling alley in an industrial part of town for a big, wild vision they had of a new way to tell stories while presenting art to people of all backgrounds and tastes. They were bold, visionary, committed to community and determined not to give up on their dream. They baited the hook well with the fantastic nature of the story and went on to exceed everyone's highest hopes including my own. "Meow Wolf: Origin Story" is another fantastic Meow Wolf tale--and it's all true. If you want to know what's happening in art and storytelling now, I encourage you to see it," George RR Martin said.
"We are pleased to bring 'Meow Wolf: Origin Story' to audiences across the nation," Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said. "We are always seeking to provide our viewers with new cinematic experiences and 'Meow Wolf' is a one-of-a-kind, inspiring and creative event we cannot wait to share in cinemas."
"The Meow Wolf story is the story of DIY, creatives and entrepreneurs everywhere," said Meow Wolf CEO Vince Kadlubek. "'Meow Wolf: Origin Story' is the enduring power of the underdog who overcomes all obstacles through community, heart and hard work. The message today is the same as ever: never give in and never give up."
