Who wants to go to the movies?

“War Horse”? “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol”? “We Bought a Zoo”? “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”? “The Adentures of Tintin”?

Let me buy the first two tickets.

This week’s giveaway is another AMC movie package: two tickets and two fountain sodas. Take your spouse. Take a friend. Take yourself, twice.

If the winner contacts me first thing Tuesday, I’ll put the tickets in the mail that day. They should arrive in time for a Saturday matinee before going out for New Year’s Eve — or for two movies in a row and then home to watch the ball fall.

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 9 p.m. PST Monday, Dec. 26.

    I just subscribed to your newsletter! I want to go see WAR HORSE, because the more I hear about it, the more I am intrigued. First I saw a little bit on this, as I watched the TONY awards and learned about this as a PLAY on BROADWAY. Then I heard that they made a movie about it. I heard that the HORSE is best actor in the entire movie. This horse does things that are just AMAZING! Then I heard the story, which is about a boy who gets this wonderful horse and then loses him because the horse is drafted into WWI. A learning experience in of itself. Then I saw that the film was directed by Steven Spielberg. He’s never made a bad movie, that I know about… and he depicts this… This was originally a CHILDREN’s BOOK and then adapted to a PLAY. Of course things have been changed for the adult audience and then it was picked up to become a movie. I really like this whole history behind it and I am chomping at the bit to see this movie!

  63. i’ve been wanting to go to the movies!
