Three dopey cons flee a chain gang to claim a buried treasure, beginning a hilarious journey on which they encounter blind prophets, sexy sirens, overnight radio fame, and John Goodman. It’s The Odyssey meets the Depression-era rural South meets musical-adventure-satire, with a killer folky soundtrack to boot.
This is the trailer for Inside Llewyn Davis, the new Coen Brothers film.
It opens in theaters on Friday, December 6. However, CBS Films dropped off probably 100 passes to see the film in Manchester tomorrow night – for free. The showing will be at 7:30 PM at Cinemark Buckland Hills, 99 Red Stone Road, Manchester, CT 06045. It’s about 20 minutes away by car.
The pass doesn’t reserve you a seat; you still have to show up early. Also, even though the pass is just a piece of paper, it is unique – so you can’t photocopy it.
But if you want to go see the movie for free, I’m just gonna drop these on this table in Usdan and slip away. GRAB THEM!
Date: Tomorrow, Thursday, November 21 Time: 7:30 PM (but get there around 7:00 probs) Place: Cinemark Buckland Hills; 99 Red Stone Road, Manchester, CT 06045 Cost: Free (with pass)
