We just got a flyer about free admission for active duty troops and veterans at the movie “White House Down” on July 4th only;
ACTIVE MILITARY AND VETERANS INVITED TO CELEBRATE JULY 4TH WITH FREE ADMISSION TO “WHITE HOUSE DOWN”
Regal Entertainment Group, AMC Theatres, Cinemark Theatres, and Carmike Cinemas To Participate in Special Tribute to Troops
CULVER CITY, Calif., July 2, 2013 – On Independence Day, to thank America’s troops for their sacrifice and service, active military personnel and veterans will be admitted with one guest to see Columbia Pictures’ White House Down for free at any Regal Entertainment Group, AMC Theatres, Cinemark Theatres, or Carmike Cinemas theater by showing proper military identification. The special invitation to America’s military personnel and veterans is valid only on the 4th of July and seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis at each participating location.
Commenting on the announcement, Rory Bruer, president of Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures, said, “We think White House Down is the summer’s best action movie, so on July 4th, we’re inviting all active duty and veteran military personnel to bring a guest and see it for free. It’s a great way to celebrate the holiday and to honor and thank the troops for their service to our country.”
In White House Down, Capitol Policeman John Cale (Channing Tatum) has just been denied his dream job with the Secret Service of protecting President James Sawyer (Jamie Foxx). Not wanting to let down his little girl with the news, he takes her on a tour of the White House, when the complex is overtaken by a heavily armed paramilitary group. Now, with the nation’s government falling into chaos and time running out, it’s up to Cale to save the president, his daughter, and the country. The film is directed by Roland Emmerich, written by James Vanderbilt, and produced by Bradley J. Fischer, Harald Kloser, James Vanderbilt, Larry Franco, and Laeta Kalogridis.
That’s probably the only way I’d go see this particular movie from what I’ve heard of the plot. I wonder when Hollywood is going to have the villains portrayed by actual villainous people instead of drawing on the worn out cliche rich white guys. And the scariest part of the movie is that Jamie Foxx is the President. But, hey, it’s free on July 4th only, so go have fun. I guess you should call your theater ahead of time to ask if they’re participating in the dealie.
