Kauai Garden Island News : 'Fahrenheit 9/11' used to lure and register young voters

Kauai Garden Island News: "Kaua'i Democrats are using the docu-drama film 'Fahrenheit 9/11' to lure and register young voters.
Kaua‘i party chair Martin Rice said North Shore Democrats, the Democratic Party of Kaua‘i and Damon Marc, operator of the Kilauea Theatre, are offering a special $1 ticket deal for young adults wishing to view the Michael Moore film that bashes President George Bush.

To qualify for the $1 tickets, movie-goers must be residents of Hawai‘i who will be 18 by election day but who are not over 25.

The balance of the ticket is to be paid for by the North Shore Democrats and the Democratic Party of Kaua‘i. Voter-registration tables are being placed at the theater in cooperation with the Democratic Party.

Leaders of the local party are also holding a reception after the movie. The special, one-time showing is set for 8 p.m. tomorrow, Tuesday, July 13.

Marc said the event is costing about $1,900. Marc held the Kaua‘i premiere of the film on July 2, and worked with KKCR-FM radio to kick off a voter-registration drive tied in to the showing."
