UPDATE 4:10 pm: Well that was fast… Looks like all 200 tickets have been claimed. Apologies if you weren’t able to get one.
If you’re looking for something to do tomorrow night (Wednesday, 9/11), I just received a link with 200 free tickets to an UWS advance screening of The Family.
The film has an A-List cast including Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Tommy Lee Jones.
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:
In the off-beat action comedy The Family, a mafia boss and his family are relocated to a sleepy town in France under the witness protection program after snitching on the mob. Despite the best efforts of Agent Stansfield (Tommy Lee Jones) to keep them in line, Fred Manzoni (Robert DeNiro), his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer) and their children Belle (Dianna Agron) and Warren (John D’Leo) can’t help but revert to old habits and blow their cover by handling their problems the “family” way, enabling their former mafia cronies to track them down. Chaos ensues as old scores are settled in the unlikeliest of settings in this darkly funny film by Luc Besson (Taken, Transporter).
Here’s the trailer:
