Movie RUSH Opening Night, by Audi Club Northwest

Non-track Event, Washington

About this event



9/21 Update:  Porsche Club of America-Pacific North West Region and BMW Car Club of America-Puget Sound Region are adding their direct support, joining with Audi Club Northwest to fund an increased theater size for this ever-growing group of caring local enthusiasts!  The program, timing and 100% contribution to Children's Hospital remain unchanged (outlined below).  This will be lots of fun with a great group of good people.


Audi Club Northwest is hosting the opening night gathering to view the new Ron Howard movie RUSH, Based on a True Story!

Sign up now to join us on Friday, September 27th at 7:00pm at the Regal Bella Bottega Stadium 11 theater in Redmond WA.  The movie starts at 7:30pm but you must pick up your ticket and be seated prior to show time.

Cost for this event is being paid by Audi Club Northwest (with funding from PCA-PNWR and BMWCCA-PSR to increase the theater size on 9/20).  We are asking that you make a tax-deductible donation to Children's Hospital, minimum $5.00.  There will be selections to increase your charitable donation if you can help more.  One guest may attend with you, a minimum $5 donation per person.

Registration is now open for members of other clubs in our area.  Audi Club membership is not required.

If you have any questions please contact John Ewald at <>

Here is more about the movie:
RUSH portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed—handsome English playboy James Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Niki Lauda.  Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing and taking us into their personal lives on and off the track, RUSH follows the two drivers as they push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there is no shortcut to victory and no margin for error.  If you make one mistake, you die.

Two-time Academy Award® winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon), teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award® nominee, writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), on RUSH.  The epic action-drama stars Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives.  Also starring Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy) and Alexandra Maria Lara (The Reader), RUSH is produced by Andrew Eaton (A Mighty Heart), Howard, Academy Award® winner Brian Grazer (Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind), Eric Fellner (Senna, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Morgan and Brian Oliver (Black Swan) and executive produced by Cross Creek Pictures, Exclusive Media, Todd Hallowell and Tim Bevan. Universal Pictures will distribute the film in North America.  RUSH was shot on location in the U.K., Germany and Austria.  RUSH is R-rated so children under 17 are not allowed to attend unless accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.

Here is the background on our support to Children's Hospital:
In 2011 the ACNW Board raised our visibility in the community with an annual commitment of $1,000 or more to help uncompensated care to the kids at Seattle Children's Hospital.  For several years prior contributions went to The SOVREN Guild of Seattle Children's Hospital as part of the annual Audi Car Corral held at the Pacific Northwest Historic Races on the July 4th weekend.  The amount from us for 2011 was $1,105, doubled for 2012, and our commitment for 2013 has already been met but we want to involve a larger number of people in the club as contributors.  The ACNW Board decided to make this entire event fee tax-deductible for Audi Club members. Everyone has the opportunity to select an additional small donation as part of your event registration.  Each registration produces a receipt that you can use with your tax return.  These funds are consolidated and donated once per year to The SOVREN Guild's Children's Checkered Flag Club (CCFC).  All of us are recognized each year inside the front cover of the Pacific Northwest Historics program.  Thank you all, for the Kids!
