There is a new article online from Home Media Magazine which gives information on a limited theatrical release in the US for “Ballet Shoes,” the BBC film staring Emma Watson (Hermione Granger). Set to take place in a total of “171 theaters in 77 markets across 35 states,” the showings will start on August 26th, the week prior to the film’s DVD release in the US on September 2. Additionally, the article notes that “All participating theater chains within a 20-mile radius of the showcasing theaters will begin playing the film’s trailer Aug. 1 and will feature the theatrical poster beginning Aug. 4.” Readers will remember “Ballet Shoes” was first broadcast on BBC1 last December. The release of the Region 2 DVD in the UK followed shortly after in January.
