On October 29, 2008 NewPath held the inaugural "Movies that Motivate" event. We screened "Iron Man" featuring Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark (aka "Iron Man") and Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Tony's gorgeous and loyal assistant.
The response was terrific! We sold out the 25-seat Hazelton Hotel Silver Screening theater. The two million dollar facility was the perfect setting for our guests to enjoy the movie in full luxury, enabling them to think deeply about the business-related themes in the movie. The leather seats comfortable, the 32 foot screen was bright and sharp, and the sound system was sublime. Each time Iron Man took off I could feel the seats shake in a most subtle way, not too loud -- just the way the movie was meant to be seen.

"You sure know how to throw a movie night. Alex, it was a wonderful evening and all on a Wednesday. How great is that! I certainly enjoyed the movie (one I probably would not have rented myself - and look what I would have missed). And the discussion after, some great thought provoking insights. It was a fantastic luxurious venue and very professionally and thoughtfully organized. Thanks so much Alex, and count me in for the next one." - Doris P.
