The life of this sportswriter is the life

New house. New job. New car. I definitely can’t complain, and I’ve always said I’m one lucky punk.

I was sitting at my desk working on a feature when I got the call from my managing editor.

I’ve been assigned to sit and watch the BCS National Championship Game between No. 2 Florida and No. 1 Oklahoma, something I would have done anyway from the comfort of my home. But now I’m getting paid to watch the game and take in on the experience of watching the game in digital 3-D on Thursday evening at the Krikorian Monrovia Cinema 12 (410 S. Myrtle Ave., Monrovia, CA). The game starts at 5 p.m.

The live digital 3-D presentation is the first ever of its kind. Only 82 select locations throughout the U.S. will partake in this event and the Monrovia Cinema 12 will be one of only three Los Angeles market area locations.

“The movie-going experience of the future has arrived,” said George Krikorian, president and owner of Krikorian Premiere Theatres. “We believe that the future movie-going experiences will far exceed our greatest expectations. These 3-D presentations represent a pivotal transitional moment in film exhibition history. Live 3-D broadcast of prominent sporting events will be more compelling and appealing to the public than live attendance at those events. We are proud and excited to participate in this historic presentation.”

Ticket sales for the special event will be sold for only $20.00 and the game will be presented in KPT’s exclusive Digital 3DX technology. Tickets will be on sale at kptmovies.com and on location at the Monrovia Cinema 12.

Feel free to say hello if you see me there. I’ll have a story in the Star-News’ sports section Friday.
