An interesting new event has been discovered, and Lost fans will be excited to learn more about it. A movie theater in Michigan called Celebration Cinemas has posted information on something being called Behind the Scenes of Lost.
As it turns out, this is being put on by The New York Times’ TimesTalks, and will take place at TheTimesCenter in New York City on Thursday, May 20, 2010 at 8:00PM. On this evening, Lost‘s two most recognized writers and producers, Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof, will be talking with the Times’ Lorne Manly and sharing their stories about the show, and how difficult it was to achieve their greatest challenge: a perfect series finale that leaves their army of fans satisfied.
Throughout the night, clips will be shows, including a one-minute sneak peak at the final episode that will air three days later. And at the end, a live Q&A will take place allowing fans in the audience and via text message to ask questions.
Speaking of the final episode — an episode that could very well go down as the most-anticipated finale of all-time and put the cherry on top of the greatest show of all time — a title has been chosen. The final episode of Lost will now officially be called “The End.”
The reason that all of this is catching eyes is, if a theater in Michigan is going to be holding a special screening of this live event from New York, that means many other theaters around the country will likely be doing the same thing.
Here’s the description from the Michigan theater.
Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof, the creators of LOST, will have an in-depth live discussion about the show’s creation, its six years on the air, and its finale on May 23, 2010. The TimesTalks Participants include Award winning Carlton Cuse, who currently executive produces LOST, along with Damon Lindelof, the co-creator and executive producer for the LOST series. The discussion will be interspersed with video clips from past shows as well as a one-minute sneak peak from the finale. The discussion will be followed by a 30-40 minute Q&A with questions taken from the live crowd at the NYT Center, pre-submitted fan questions and questions texted from guests on event night. Guests will be offered the opportunity to text in a question.
The only real issue here is that no one knows for sure who will take part yet, unless you live in Michigan. A Google search of the event brings up ticket options for the sold out live show in New York, but you will have to keep an eye out for locations in your area that will screen it.
If any new information comes, we’ll be sure to let you know!
