StreetPass NYC with help from the Bronies NYC group, plans on attending the premiere opening of the video game Disney animated feature Wreck-It Ralph despite the devastating effects caused by Hurricane Sandy over the course of last weekend.
“We feel that we owe it to the gamers who can make it on that day the opportunity to go see a film we all have been waiting to see for a long time as none of us foresaw the damage that this storm would bring,” says Jordan White, Founder and Event Organizer of StreetPass NYC. “Plus, we feel it would send a positive message to the public that we cannot let tragedy rule our lives and what is best for us is to repair the damage and move on.”
The group will be meeting at the RPX Regal E-Walk Stadium 13 lobby located at 247 W. 42nd St. New York, NY 10036. People participating must buy their own tickets and the version of the film we will be seeing is the Digital 3D version. Look for people with StreetPass Network shirts and Nintendo 3DS in the lobby before 7:30 PM.
While the film does not begin until 7:40 PM, due to the nature of the current MTA Transit Systems we HIGHLY RECOMMEND leaving hours earlier on subway or by bus.

This event's per-screening and post reactions are planned to be filmed for StreetPass NYC’s YouTube channel.
“For those gamers who cannot make it to the screening on Friday and I know for a fact that many of you will be unable to, don't worry, we have a back up screening planned later in the month of November” concludes Jordan. “We are still looking into either having a second screening after our Paper Mario: Sticker Star Event, after The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddess performance or at a random free day where we all meet up at Burger King to collect more of those Wii U toys. We have plenty of events before and after the Wii U launch in November, so we are still very excited for what we dub the month of ‘Nintevember’”.
StreetPass NYC would also like to clarify that the group still plans to walk in the New York City 39th Annual Halloween Day Parade and are waiting for an announcement on what day and time the parade has been rescheduled.
