Backwards, a 'rowmance' movie starring Sarah Megan Thomas and James Van Der Beek, opens nationwide this month in the United States. Rowers everywhere will enjoy the story of an Olympic athlete struggling to find her place after losing a seat on the national team. Set in Philadelphia, there are great shots of Boathouse Row and rowing on the Schuykil River.


Best quote:


Rowing is an art. You don't see the work that went into creating it but it should be beautiful.

Want to put a group of rowers together to see the movie? What better excuse to blow off your next morning practice? .... Use GLRF's new Calendar RSVP feature to find out how many are interested in seeing the movie and as a tool to determine a count for group tickets (see below for more information).


Want to get notified of a new event in your regional calendar? Now you can 'follow' both a GLRF regional calendar as well as a particular calendar event and receive notifications when new events are added or updates are posted for one event!

Here is the 411 on group tickets:


Each theatre chain sets their own group rates and group rates usually begin at 25 people or more and some have assigned seats and some don’t and some have group rates that vary by showtime. If your group is smaller than 25, you can probably still arrange for a block of tickets but you may not be able to get a group discount.


Contact (email) Jackie Papier to arrange group tickets. We recommend going through her rather than dealing directly with the theater because she has more pull.
