IFC, RCA AND THE ACTION PACK BRING
THE R. KELLY TRAPPED IN THE CLOSET SING-ALONG
TO NEW YORK COMIC CON
Interactive Screening of Original Trapped in the Closet
Takes Place on Saturday, October 13
All-New Chapters Premiere on IFC in November
Austin, TX & New York, NY--- Friday, October 5, 2012 --- The Action Pack, the interactive screening arm of the growing Alamo Drafthouse lifestyle brand, has teamed up with RCA Records and IFC to produce a sing-along of R. Kelly's original Trapped in the Closet at New York Comic Con (NYCC- www.newyorkcomiccon.com) on Saturday, October 13 at 8 pm at the Javits Center.
The Trapped in the Closet Sing-Along is a fully interactive cinematic experience featuring subtitled lyrics on screen, props distributed throughout the audience, and a dance party with all of R. Kelly's most well known hits mixed in between original Trapped chapters 1- 22.
"We did a screening of the first chapters of Trapped in the Closet at the Alamo way back in 2007," said Henri Mazza, founder of The Action Pack. "Watching the hip-hopera unfold with a packed audience gasping and reacting at every twist and turn was perhaps one of the crowning moments of that decade, so as soon as we heard that IFC was going to be releasing new chapters in the hopefully never-ending saga we reached out to them to start the process of bringing these interactive experiences to life."
Commented IFC's Blake Callaway, senior vice president of marketing: "The sing along is a great way to tap into Trapped in the Closet, R. Kelly and karaoke fans alike, and get everyone excited for the new chapters coming only to IFC in November. The audience is in store for a truly one-of-a-kind experience."
The Sing-Along at New York Comic Con will be emceed by Mazza who will introduce segments of music videos, instruct attendees on the proper use of spatulas, toy Berettas, and rubbers throughout the screening, and demand that audience members stand up to Step in the Name of Love. The event is open to all New York Comic Con badge holders.
