Win advance passes to "Choke" in KC!

by Eric Melin on September 17, 2008

in Giveaways

It’s been a long time since “Fight Club,” but finally somebody besides David Fincher has the balls to adapt a book by Chuck Palahniuk. Here’s your chance to see Sam Rockwell and Anjelica Huston in “Choke,” a Sundance festival favorite about a sex addict who can’t feel anything. We’re giving away 50 ‘admit-two- passes to the advance screening on Wednesday, Sept. 24 at the AMC Barrywoods theater (8101 Roanridge Rd.). The screening starts at 7:30pm.

If you are able to fill out the form below, you are one of the first 50, and the tickets will be mailed to your house. Please do not sign up more than once, and don’t try to be all tricky with multiple email accounts and addresses. If you know someone else that would want to go, point them right here instead of doing their dirty work for them.

Also, if the screening sells out, be sure and keep checking back at this post. Often times, Scene-Stealers sitegoers will let you know if they aren’t using their tickets! 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!

Giveaway is SOLD OUT. Thanks!

No more submissions accepted at this time.

ummm.. I dont know if I would recommend the book. People kept telling me that it was pretty twisted but I just found it to be strange and awkward at some points. I almost stopped reading it but I kept it up cause I wanted to know what was going to happen, so I guess that says something about the book. **Spoiler** (kinda) It seems to be like all his books have a twist, this one is definitely no exception but it was super out there, so much so that I still cant figure out if I like it or not..

Here’s the scoop:
The passes were mailed yesterday. If you don’t get them today, and you can’t get home tomorrow to pick yours up before the screening, your name will be on the list at the door. Just tell the usher that your name is on the list and then check in with the person at the door of the theater with the clipboard.
Enjoy!
