The Plan

The original plan was to screen "El Cid" at the Park 51 site, or somewhere close to Ground Zero, on a large digital screen. This may not be doable.

The current plan is for the El Cid Project to arrange and promote a showing of "El Cid" in a theater in lower Manhattan early in 2011. Notables like Mayor Bloomberg, Imam Rauf, and others will be invited. The idea is to unite all sides in support of moderate Islam, and against radical Islamic jihad. It will send a dual message: For tolerance and AGAINST those who've declared war on America.

Beyond this, viewing "El Cid" on a large screen will be a moving experience-- a great way to honor the memory of the victims of 9-11.
