The 15-stop film tour for Where Dreams Go To Die is underway.
The movie chronicling Gary Robbins and his pair of attempts to complete the Barkley Marathons is being screened in various cities across North America, including its first stop in North Vancouver, B.C., which took place on Oct. 12.
Ethan Newberry, the creator of the film, released a video, in a vlog format, on Sunday giving a behind-the-scenes look of the tour so far. Footage includes scenes from the North Vancouver and Seattle tour stops. Portland, Ore. is on the schedule for Oct. 15.
In terms of Canadian cities, the film will be screened in Edmonton (Oct. 19), Calgary (Oct. 21), Toronto (Oct. 22), Ottawa (Oct. 23), again in North Vancouver (Nov. 7) and, finally, Victoria (Nov. 10), the latter two advertised as featuring special guests. Every Canadian show is sold out.
The Nashville, Tenn., Washington, D.C., Phoenix and Ogden, Utah shows will also feature special guests, according to the website.

North Van, that was really something special last night, thank you from the bottom of my heart! Ethan observed more than a few times that "this BC running community is really something else." I've attended and presented many shows at the Centennial Theatre now and that vibe was truly electric, and right from the very start. That was not an easy stage to take. This is not an easy journey to share so openly, but experiences like last night reaffirm that this is the best way to move forward, and to push onward and upward. We're en route to Seattle for tonight's sold out show at the 700 seat Kane Hall! See you soon Seattle friends.
