We've Got Tickets (for You) to 'The School of Rock' Reunion
Would you like to spend an evening with the two gentlemen above -- Austin filmmaker Richard Linklater and actor Jack Black -- and watch The School of Rock too? Of course you would ... and we're giving away two pairs of tickets to the Austin Film Society-sponsored event. Keep reading.
Linklater, Black, screenwriter/actor Mike White, actress Miranda Cosgrove and other younger cast members from The School of Rock will be at the Paramount next Thursday, August 29 for a special tenth-anniversary screening of the movie. Tickets are available at several levels -- VIP ticketholders also have the chance to attend an afterparty at the Gibson Austin Showroom where the band from the movie will perform.
As if that weren't enough, you can also purchase tickets to a special Moviemaker Dialogue with Mike White, moderated by Kimberley Jones of The Austin Chronicle, on Wednesday, August 28 a the Marchesa. If you're an AFS "Make" or higher-level member, admission is free (although you still want to reserve a ticket online).
Here's a photo of White from the Gentlemen Broncos premiere at Fantastic Fest 2009:
Now, here's how to get a pair of tickets in the balcony to see The School of Rock. In the comments below, share your favorite rock'n'roll-themed movie. Please be sure to submit your name and email in the comment fields, although no one will see the email but me (and I won't use it for anything but notifying you if you win). You have until Friday, August 23 at 11:59 pm CST. At that time, I'll close comments and pick two winners at random, and notify them via email. Remember that all comments are moderated and I am not always at my computer, so it may take a short while for your comment to appear.
I like The School of Rock a lot, but my favorite rock-music-themed film? Since you asked? Rock'n'Roll High School. ("Do your parents know you're Ramones?") Can't wait to hear yours.
