GIVEAWAY: Fathom Events presents “Snowden Live” on September 14 (Various Locations)

Snowden_3

Happy Friday MMT Fam! I’m very excited to bring an advanced screening opportunity that expands outside of the Philly area! Event cinema leader Fathom Events is having an advanced screening of the highly anticipated Oliver Stone film “Snowden” – immediately followed by an exclusive LIVE conversation between Edward Snowden from Moscow and Stone. SNOWDEN LIVE will take place on Wednesday, September 14 at 7:30 ET/ 6:30 CT.

Academy Award®-winning director Oliver Stone, who brought Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, Wall Street and JFK to the big screen, tackles the most important and fascinating true story of the 21st century. Snowden, the politically-charged, pulse-pounding thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley, reveals the incredible untold personal story of Edward Snowden, the polarizing figure who exposed shocking illegal surveillance activities by the NSA and became one of the most wanted men in the world. He is considered a hero by some, and a traitor by others. No matter which you believe, the epic story of why he did it, who he left behind, and how he pulled it off makes for one of the most compelling films of the year.

MMT will select two lucky winners for an admit-two pass to this exclusive screening event. To put your name in the hat, you must 1) be a subscriber of this website, 2) send an email to contests@musicmoviesthoughts.com with the subject line “Snowden Live,” and 3) name your first and second choice theater locations (click here to see theater list).
