Giveaway: Two AMC movie tickets.

th-1The Academy Awards have come and gone. Seen the prize-winners yet?

The summer movie season is nearly here. Got your must-see list going? (I’m looking at you, “The Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Might even spring for a midnight screening.)

Ticket prices are a bummer, but I can help. That is, I can help if you live near an AMC theater and win this week’s giveaway. I can even offer you something to drink.

Up for grabs are two gold e-tickets to the AMC theater chain, each of which includes a free large fountain drink. Weirdly, the soft-drink portion of the deal is good only through May 31 but the ticket itself doesn’t expire.

Use the combo before the true first day of summer, then, or opt to hang on to the prize until the thick of summer, when you’re desperate for a little air-conditioned escapism.

To enter:

If you do any (or all!) of these things, please leave separate, additional comments to get credit for each entry.

The deadline is 7 p.m. PDT Tuesday, March 24. If I don’t hear back from the winner by 7 p.m. PDT Wednesday, March 25, I’ll pull another name.

The giveaway schedule has been out of whack lately, thanks to the need to hyper-focus on my new business. Hoping to get back to a regular posting rhythm — for all articles, not just giveaways — in the very near future.

    I haven’t been to the movies in ages! But when I used to go, my favorite time was the “Midnite Show”. There’s a certain sense of anticipation and joy at being one of the first to see a new movie. Oh and if the showing was for one of my favorites like the Star Wars series or Harry Potter, it was doubly exciting! I felt just like I did when I was a kid, but now I can get in to the ones that are rated “R” too! Yipee! Don’t forget the nonpareils and twizzlers!

  5. Count me in! Summer definitely means the movies. Thanks for another great giveaway!

    Wow, I’d love to get two free tickets to an AMC movie. I think I would follow your suggestion and would wait until the summer when it gets real hot here in New York and escape to the movie theater one late Saturday afternoon. I would bring my wife, or one of my sons, or even my Mother-in Law-depending on what movie we pick.

    i love movies and ironically i live in hollywood, literally, where they make movies but as a graduate student i don’t have extra $$ to see them. the only one i have seen in past year was a free screening of “trainwreck” starring the amazing amy schumer and equally fantastic bill hader…it was a screening they were passing flyers out to student on campus. so yeah, i would LOVE to see a movie, a real movie, with previews and tub of popcorn etc instead of a screening.

  80. I haven’t seen a movie in so long. It would be fun to win.
