UPDATE 5:00 pm: All the passes have been claimed. Apologies if you weren’t able to secure a pair. I’ll post an update if I get any more.
If you’re free on Tuesday, January 28th, I just got hooked up with 50 pairs of free passes to an UWS advance screening of Labor Day.
The film stars Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, and is directed by Jason Reitman (Up In The Air, Juno). Reitman also wrote the screenplay, adapted from the book by Joyce Maynard.
If you’re interested, here’s the link to register for tickets.
There’s a limit of two tickets per person and seating is first-come, first-served.
The screening takes place at the AMC Lincoln Square theaters (1998 Broadway, between 67th & 68th).
The movie starts at 7:00 pm, although if you manage to score tickets I’d advise getting there early in order to make sure you get a seat. I believe that for free screenings like this they often give away more tickets than seats, so arriving early is essential.
The tickets are provided by gofobo — you can read a bit more about them here.
A brief synopsis of the film:
Labor Day centers on 13-year-old Henry Wheeler, who struggles to be the man of his house and care for his reclusive mother Adele while confronting all the pangs of adolescence. On a back-to-school shopping trip, Henry and his mother encounter Frank Chambers, a man both intimidating and clearly in need of help, who convinces them to take him into their home and later is revealed to be an escaped convict. The events of this long Labor Day weekend will shape them for the rest of their lives.
Here’s the trailer:
