TED Talks are heading to theaters for one night only this February.
For the first time ever, the opening night of TED’s flagship annual conference — TED2016 — will be broadcast live from Vancouver in select U.S. theaters, Mashable has learned. Audiences in Europe can watch on Feb. 16, while audiences in Australia can view it on Mar. 2.
TED, a nonprofit devoted to « ideas worth spreading, » began offering conference talks for free back in 2006. Now videos of TEDX speeches rack up more than a million views daily, and there are roughly 8 TEDx speeches held every day somewhere in the world.
