GONE GONE GONE- ALL 50 PASSES ARE CLAIMED

Okay fellow Movie Maniacs, scored some great tickets here courtesy of our friends at eOne. These advances screening passes are for The Theory of Everything which stars Eddie Redmanye (last seen singing his heart out in Les Mis), and Felicity Jones.

You might be familiar with this film as it had its world premiere at TIFF this year. The film follows Stephen Hawking's relationship with his wife Jane as they work together to triumph over his debilitating disease. This one won't go unnoticed during the award season.

Wednesday November 12, 7:00 p.m.

Ciniplex Eau Claire Market

Follow this link and enter the code MovieManiacsTheory to claim your free double pass. Take this pass to the box office the night of the show and exchange it for an actual ticket. This ticket will guarantee admission. And do arrive early as interest is very high for this film. I would aim to be there for 6 p.m. or 6:15 p.m. at the latest to avoid disappointment.

ADVANCED SCREENING PASSES

SORRY FOLKS, ALL THE PASSES ARE CLAIMED

Our good friends at eOne Entertainment have provided us with 25 (double) advance screening passes. Up this time is the new Simon Pegg movie Hector and the Search for Happiness.


Hector’s life seems perfect, but it’s not. Hector (SIMON PEGG) is a successful, well-meaning and eccentric professional, filled with childlike wonder, but he’s stuck. He’s a busy psychiatrist with a thriving practice, living with his beautiful girlfriend, Clara (ROSAMUND PIKE), in a fabulous London flat; but he’s losing patience with his patients, who aren’t getting any happier, and his romantic relationship isn’t going anywhere. Hector feels like a fraud. How can he help his patients be happier when he doesn’t really know what happiness is? And so, Hector sets off on a global quest in search of happiness.

You know the drill. Go to this external site enter the exclusive Movie Maniacs password CaptureHappiness967 and have your double pass sent directly to you for printing. The night of the movie turn up early, exchange this pass for an actual ticket at the box office, and in you go.

The screening will take place:

Thursday, September 25, 2014
Show Time: 7:00 PM
Cineplex Odeon Westhills Cinemas
165 Stewart Green SW
Calgary, AB T3H 3C8

If you claim tickets and find yourself unable to use them, please pass them on. They do not check ID so there is no need to worry about a different name.

Drop me a review through comments if you are one of the lucky ones to go. Want to see more Simon Pegg- we have a good selection here at CPL. He's quite versatile but does lean towards outrageous black comedies like Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and World's End. He also plays 'Scotty' in the new Star Trek franchise.

GONE GONE GONE

ALL THE PASSES HAVE BEEN CLAIMED

As promised here we go with the third round of advanced screening passes. Sin City 2- A dame To Kill For airs on Thursday August 21st at Cineplex Odeon Eau Claire Market Theatre at 7:00. To claim your double pass log onto this external site and enter the exclusive Movie Maniacs code SinCity2Cal9964330. Your voucher can then be printed from home. Remember to arrive at the theatre early and exchange this voucher for an actual ticket at the box office, which will then guarantee you a seat.

If you aren't familiar with these films let me tell you they are based on a very dark, violent graphix novel by Frank Miller. It won't be for everybody, so if you have doubts best to pass and let people who really like this franchise claim the tickets. This round of three giveaways was an exception in terms of giving you advance notice, so check back regularly as tickets come up frequently without notice.

Thanks again to our friends at entONE for the passes---they were very generous, gifting us with 75 double passes! Hope you are one of the lucky ones who gets to see either THE GIVER, EXPENDABLES 3 or SIN CITY. If you do, write me with your thoughts on the movie through COMMENTS at the bottom of this or any post- would love to hear from you.

SORRY FOLKS---THESE THESE HAVE ALL BEEN SCOOPED UP

KEEP CHECKING BACK AS I HAVE MORE AVAILABLE SOON (SEE BELOW)

SECOND ROUND OF FREE ADVANCED SCREENING TICKETS

As promised here we go with the second offering of advanced screening passes. These are for EXPENDABLES 3 which airs on Thursday August 14th at Cineplex Odeon Eau Claire Market Theatre at 7:00. To claim your double pass log onto this external site and enter the exclusive Movie Maniacs code EX3Cal445318. Your voucher will be emailed to you for printing on your home computer. Remember to arrive at the theatre a little earlier and exchange this voucher for an actual ticket at the box office, which will then guarantee you a seat. In fact, for this one I would arrive close to 6:00 as interest will be very high---this time they have added Harrison Ford, Kelsey Grammer and Mel Gibson to the already testosterone fuelled flicks.

We have secured 25 double passes for our followers, but once they are gone, they are gone. Now remember to check back again because sometime in the next seven days I will release the last of the 25 double passes for another big summer release. And I'll keep you guessing on this title as well but give you a hint. This is also a sequel, one that is almost a decade since the original and is based on a very popular, albeit dark Graphix Novel.

Thanks again to our friends at entONE for the passes.

Movie Maniacs has 30 double passes available for Fox Searchlights advanced screeing of their new release Belle.

BELLE is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), the illegitimate mixed race daughter of Admiral Sir John Lindsay (Matthew Goode). Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), Belle's lineage affords her certain privileges, yet her status prevents her from the traditions of noble social standing.

To claim tickets for this event you will be taken to a third party site that is not affiliated with CPL. You will be asked to create an account with Fox Searchlight - standard info- valid email address, name, age etc. People often use a secondary email for such offers and information doesn't have to be accurate--- it is not verified against your real ID when you redeem your ticket at the box office. If you are comfortable with this, go ahead and sign up. We have done this type of redemption before with goFobo tickets. It's up to you.

To get a free double pass follow this link and enter the code: BelleCalCPLMM

Once claimed simply print off your tickets from your own computer. Come a little early to the theatre as you have to redeem your pass for an actual ticket .

Screening Info:

Wednesday, May 14 Eau Claire Market Cinemas 7PM

Enjoy, and if you do see it drop me a line through comments and tell me what you thought of it.

SORRY FOLKS- ALL GONE

Check back often as tickets come up regularly and without notice

So here's the link to get free advanced screening passes to Jason Bateman's directorial debut — Bad Words.

Thursday, March 20, 2014 Show Time: 7:00 PM Eau Claire Market Cinemas

Your password/PIN code is MovieManiacsBadWordsCal

Guy Trilby (Bateman) is a 40-year old who finds a loophole in the rules of the National Quill Spelling Bee and decides to cause trouble by hijacking the competition. Contest officials, outraged parents, and overly ambitious 8th graders are no match for Guy, as he ruthlessly crushes their dreams of victory and fame. As a reporter attempts to discover his true motivation, Guy finds himself forging an unlikely alliance with a competitor: awkward 10-year old Chaitanya, who is completely unfazed by Guy's take-no-prisoners approach to life.

Rotten Tomatoes gives it 81%, IMDB rates it at 8/10 and it was a popular entry at TIFF this year. Comments range from unapologetically dark and hilarious, to vulgar and unnecessary. Judge for yourself...

Movie Maniacs and eONE Films have teamed up to bring you advanced screening passes to NO CLUE starring Brent Butt of Corner Gas fame.

"When a beautiful and mysterious woman bursts into Leo's Vancouver office and begs for his help in finding her missing brother, it's just another day in the life of a hard-boiled detective. The problem is, Leo's not a detective -- hard-boiled or otherwise. He sells novelty advertising across the hall from the detective, and the woman just opened his door by mistake. "
