Boston-area Advance Screening Alert: “Eddie the Eagle”

Eddie the Eagle


If you’re in the Boston area this coming Wednesday and would like to get a chance to see the upcoming 20th Century Fox picture, “Eddie the Eagle”, there’s a free advance screening!

“Eddie the Eagle” is based on the true story of Michael “Eddie the Eagle” Edwards, a Briton who competed in the 1988 Olympics as a ski jumper, much to the chagrin of…well, everyone. The movie is rated PG-13 for some suggestive material, partial nudity, and smoking. My review will be up on Friday, in time for the release!

Advance Screening Details

Date: Wednesday, February 17, 2016
Start Time: 7:00pm
Location: AMC Loews Boston Common (175 Tremont Street, Boston, MA)

  • The RSVP links above will work for a limited number of “admit 2” passes, so get them while they’re hot!
  • Seating is first-come, first-served, so I recommend getting to the theatre EARLY to get on line. (An hour in advance is possibly a bit much, but arriving at 6:30pm may put you at the back of the line and limit your chances to get a seat.)
  • Seating is not guaranteed. Also, this theatre’s food service lines can be…a tad slow. PLAN ACCORDINGLY.
