This event is a result of the Eventful community of users "demanding" that Wil Wheaton come to Boston for a talk / performance / improv / whatever.
Here is a link to the original demand started back on March 13th.
Here's a comment posted by Wil Wheaton regarding this event:
"Brookline Booksmith has room in the theatre across the street, and they're hoping to put together a screening of Stand By Me in conjunction with my appeareance, if they can get a 35mm print. We've scheduled the event for July 2, at noon (with the movie) or at 1 (if the movie can't happen.) Admission to cover the cost of the theater is between 2 and 5 bucks. More details will be on my blog when I have them. Thank you, everyone, who helped make this happen, both by joining the demand, and by sharing advice on where to look for book stores n town. See you all in July!"
