in Giveaways

Alright, Scene-Stealers readers—it’s time to do another texting giveaway for a free advance screening!

We have advance passes to see THE MUSIC NEVER STOPPED on Wednesday, March 16th at 7:00PM at the AMC Studio 30 and we have some passes to give away!

Synopsis: Based on the case study “The Last Hippie” by Dr. Oliver Sacks, M.D. (Awakenings), it chronicles the journey of a father and son adjusting to cerebral trauma and a lifetime of missed opportunities. Through the music that embodied the generation gap of the 1960s, and working with music therapist Dianne Daly (Julia Ormond), the film weaves the heartwarming progress of Henry (J.K. Simmons) and Gabriel (Lou Taylor Pucci). With Gabriel unable to shed the beliefs and interests that caused their physical and emotional distance, Henry must learn to embrace his son’s choices and try to connect with him through music. The film features music from Bob Dylan, The Grateful Dead, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Crosby, Stills & Nash and Buffalo Springfield.

Here’s how to win:

Text the word MUSICIAN, a space and your zip code to 43549 for a chance to win a complimentary mobile pass for two to see THE MUSIC NEVER STOPPED.

The studio will randomly draw winners from all entries on Tuesday March 15. Winners will simply show their winning text message at the door for admittance to the screening.

There is no additional charge for texting.

Good luck!

I want to see this movie

Having to jump through hoops for free passes is lame. I can go to filmmetro for free passes and not have to go through this stuff. Figure it out. It’s why people don’t click here and why certain people think you promote their films poorly.

Joe- Maybe you should figure it out. Since you have zero understanding of how studios want their films promoted on websites, you probably shouldn’t talk. Here’s how it works: I get an email from the publicity person who says: We want to give away tickets to your sitegoers and here’s how we want to do it. I say “Sounds good!” and give my appreciative readers an opportunity to see movies early and free. If you’re not appreciative of that, I’m happy to have you never visit the site again!

Joe, some people think that quizzes, contests, and games are fun. If you consider them “hoops” or hard work then don’t participate, but it’s a shame to think of you on your deathbed softly whispering “Rosebud” as you let fall a treasured snow globe.

Hi, is there a way to enter the contest with doing a text message? I don’t do text messaging. Maybe you could offer an email method of entry for us dinosaurs.
