Planning for the Premiere of Gone Girl

PRESS RELEASE

 

A committee comprised of community leaders has joined together to leverage the impact of Gone Girl’s release for Cape Girardeau.

Representatives from the City of Cape Girardeau, the Cape Girardeau Convention and Visitors Bureau, Old Town Cape, Southeast Missouri State University, Wehrenberg Cape West Cine and Isle Casino Cape Girardeau have formed a committee to plan for the release of Gone Girl in movie theatres on October 3rd, 2014.  A driving tour of major filming locations is in development to offer to those interested in the making of the movie. 

“When a movie is filmed in a community there is a dual benefit,” Chuck Martin, Executive Director of the Cape Girardeau Convention and Visitors Bureau mentioned.  “On the front end, Gone Girl brought millions of dollars of positive economic impact to Cape Girardeau’s local economy.  On the back end, we hope to further grow that positive economic impact by offering a print and digital driving tour that will direct guests to the numerous sites of Gone Girl’s fictional community of North Carthage; sites that were filmed and can be experienced only in Cape Girardeau!” 

Further plans regarding the premiere of the film and a webpage detailing Cape Girardeau’s role in the film are in the works.
