Free Advance Screening of Footloose Friday at Edwards Mira Mesa
If it's true that Hollywood should only remake bad movies, there aren't too many musicals that reach the level of tedium that Footloose, or as I like to call it, Footstool does.
I'm sure that I'll eventually succumb, if for no other reason than I very much enjoyed director Craig Brewer's Hustle and Flow. Here's your chance to see it on the cuff and a full two weeks ahead of it release date of October 14.
This Friday night at 6 pm, Paramount Pictures is holding an advance screening of the Footloose reboot at Edwards Mira Mesa. Advertised as free, your time and eyesight are no doubt worth something.
Visit www.FootlooseFriday.com to RSVP for the exclusive screening.
In addition to San Diego, the sneak peek is being held at 25 other select theatres in the U.S. and Canada. For those of you out-of-towners who frequent The Big Screen, here is a list of other cities and locations: Atlanta (Regal Town Center); Boston (Regal Fenway); Chicago (Regal Webster Place); Cleveland (Regal Crocker Park); Dallas (Rave Ridgemar); Denver (Regal UA Pavilions); Detroit (MJR Partridge Creek); Houston (Regal Edwards Marq*E); Kansas City (AMC Barrywoods); Los Angeles (AMC Century City and AMC Burbank 16); Miami (AMC Sunset Place); Minneapolis (AMC Southdale); New York (Regal Union Square); Orlando (Regal Winter Park); Philadelphia (Regal King of Prussia); Phoenix (Harkins Tempe Marketplace); Sacramento (Century Roseville); Salt Lake City (Gateway Megaplex); San Francisco (AMC Metreon); Seattle (Regal Meridien); St. Louis (Wehrenberg Ronnies); Tampa (AMC Veterans); Toronto (Cineplex Odeon Varsity Theatre); Washington DC (Regal Majestic).
I thought the old Madstone Hazard Center had an imposing handle. The Regal King of Prussia?! Is that a theatre or a royal appellation?
Showtimes are 6 p.m. PT, 7 p.m. CT and 8 p.m. ET.
