More free advance passes to "Tropic Thunder" in KC!

by Eric Melin on July 21, 2008

in Giveaways

So many people got tickets to the first screening of this movie tht they gave us 50 more tickets to another screening! Ben Stiller directs “Tropic Thunder,” starring Robert Downey Jr., Jack Black, Steve Coogan, Bill Hader, Jay Baruchel, and Nick Nolte, about an action comedy about a group of self-absorbed actors who set out to make the most expensive war film ever. After ballooning costs force the studio to cancel the movie, the frustrated director refuses to stop shooting, leading his cast into the jungles of Southeast Asia, where they encounter real bad guys.

We have 50 admit-two passes for Monday, August 11 at 7:30PM at the AMC Town Center (119th & Nall) in Kansas City,  and we want the Scene-Stealers Army to have them.

These tickets are limited, so make sure you can go before you sign up. If you get one and you can’t go, make arrangements to give them away on the comments of this post. There’s no shortage of people who will want these.

All you need to do to get one is be one of the first 50 to fill out the form below. It’s all about quickness, and we want to give our loyal readers who visit the site daily first crack at all the screenings. The first 50 people to fill out the form below will get a pass mailed to them. If you are one of the lucky 50 winners, please remember to get there early. These screenings are often overbooked. Your pass will have more details on this. Good luck!

No more submissions accepted at this time.

Nina-

The first showing is Tues. July 29 and all the info you need will be printed on your pass. The second one we gave away tix for is the one posted above. If anyone wants to exchange or give away seats that can’t go, this is the place to do that!

OK everyone– here’s the lowdown. The 8/11 ticket winners will get their passes in an email. Everyone else who received them can do whatever they like with them– they are good for 8/11– it just may mean that screening could be a little more crowded and you may want to get there a little earlier. And it looks like that is already happening, so: awesome.

The 8/11 screening was definitely crowded last night! We arrived about 20 minutes early and there were less than 10 open seats remaining in the theater. I’m sure many people were turned away. We just wanted to say thanks again for the tickets! Unfortunately, we really weren’t that crazy about the movie. I think we were expecting a lot more with all the big names. We’ll be recommending that our friends see Pineapple Express instead! ;)
