Fathom Events and Rooster Teeth Present ’Let’s Play Live’
Live
in Movie Theaters Nationwide on October 8 Only

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#LetsPlayLive–U.S. gaming fans are about to experience a one-of-a-kind event when
their favorite YouTube entertainers join together on stage for a
non-stop frenzy of gaming and comedy. Fathom Events and Rooster Teeth
are teaming up for a special one-night event, “Let’s
Play Live
,” which will be broadcast live from the Manhattan
Center Hammerstein Ballroom at New York Comic Con to movie theaters
across the country for the first time on Saturday, October 8 at 8:00
p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. CT / 6:00 p.m. MT / 5:00 p.m. PT. “Let’s Play Live,”
will unite a powerhouse YouTube gaming roster that will feature Achievement
Hunter
, Funhaus, Cow Chop and surprise guests, all
doing what they do best (and worst) in good fun.

Tickets for “Let’s Play Live” can be purchased online by
visiting www.FathomEvents.com
or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will
be able to enjoy the event in more than 240 movie theaters through
Fathom’s Digital
Broadcast Network
. For a complete list of theater locations visit
the Fathom Events website
(theaters and participants are subject to change).

“We’re going to shake the Windy Apple to its very core. Somehow, we’ve
sold out the Hammerstein Ballroom, during New York Comic Con, so I guess
we better make this our best show yet,” said Geoff Ramsey, Let’s Play
Creative Director and co-founder of Rooster Teeth. “Bringing this live
show to movie theaters allows us to involve more of our community and
make this an event that people can experience from anywhere, so we’ll
probably try hard for once.”

Let’s Play is Achievement Hunter’s successful long-running video series,
which began when co-founder Geoff Lazer Ramsey, along with another
Achievement Hunter team member, would perform running commentary on a
select game each week. “Let’s Play Minecraft” solidified its success and
set the stage for the establishment of its own YouTube channel. In 2016, Funhaus,
ScrewAttack, Kinda Funny, The Creatures and Cow
Chop
partnered with Let’s Play resulting in a collaboration that
brings gaming channels beyond Achievement Hunter on the Let’s Play
channel, ultimately creating deeper variety and comedy to the Let’s Play
network.

“Let’s Play Live piqued our interest after they continued to sell out
3,000 plus seat venues in major cities across the country,” Fathom
Events CEO John Rubey said. “We are pleased to partner with Rooster
Teeth to take this unique live event to the big screen and make it
accessible for more audiences across the country.”
