Reserve seats for movie 'Girl Rising'

Portion of ticket sales goes to 10x10 Fund


Angela Moneyhan is bringing a global movement to educate girls and change the world to the Lake Oswego area with a screening of the anticipated film “Girl Rising.”

The film, according to a release, spotlights the stories of nine unforgettable girls born into unforgiving circumstances. It will be screened at Bridgeport Village on April 11 at 5 p.m. Those wishing to attend the screening are encouraged to reserve seats online at girlrising.com/see-the-film now.

“How I got involved is through a friend on Facebook,” said Moneyhan of Lake Oswego. “I watched the trailer and once you’ve seen that you want to get involved. I attended a screening in Northwest Portland and then wanted to bring it to this area.”

She said she was given 10 days to generate at least 100 reservations for the screening; organizers need to be assured there is sufficient interest at a particular location.

“You reserve a seat online now, when we have enough seats reserved the show will be ‘tipped,’ your card will be charged for the tickets at that point,” she said. Tickets can also be purchased at the theater once the screening is tipped.

Directed by Academy Award-nominee Richard E. Robbins and narrated by Cate Blanchet, Priyanka Chopra, Selena Gomez, Anne Hathaway, Salma Hayek, Alicia Keys, Chloe Moretz, Liam Neeson, Freida Pinto, Meryl Streep and Kerry Washington, the movie is the centerpiece of 10x10, a global campaign to educate and empower girls.

“I believe in the power of education to change not only a girl, but the world,” said Moneyhan. “By bringing ‘Girl Rising’ to one of our local theaters, I am showing our community a beautiful film that demonstrates the impact education can have on girls’ lives around the globe. Together we can be part of a revolution that gets girls into school.”

Tickets to the screening are $10 and can be purchased online at girlsrising.com. A portion of ‘Girl Rising’ ticket sales goes to support girls’ education programs around the world through the 10x10 Fund for Girls Education. The fund goes to 10x10’s network of non-profit partners and leaders in girls’ education: A New Day Cambodia, CARE, Girl Up/United Nations Foundation, Partners in Health, Plan International USA, Room to Read, UNICEF and World Vision.
