We’ve now passed the 24 day milestone to when The Hunger Games hits theaters, and since 24 is also the number of Tributes selected to participate in the Games each year, it’s a perfect reason for Lionsgate to celebrate with #HungerGames24!
For today’s celebration, Lionsgate announced that there will be 24 advance screenings of The Hunger Games, sponsored by Nook, Barnes & Noble’s e-book reader. The screenings will take place March 21st, two days before the movie officially hits theaters.
So how you do you get involved in one of these advance screenings?
- Visit http://screenings.thehungergamesmovie.com/# and locate the unique hashtag assigned to your closest city
- Tweet that hashtag in order to unlock the advance screening in your city
- Starting March 1st, the first 4 cities to be unlocked (ie, the city hashtags with the most tweets) will be announced each day
- Fans will be able to enter to win tickets to those locations as they are unlocked
And this is where the all important Sponsors come in. Lionsgate has partnered with 12 District Sponsors to each host 2 of the advance screenings, and each Sponsor will be offering 24 fans the chance to win a pair of tickets to their screening. You can search for the Sponsors on Twitter using #HungerGames 24 or the hashtag assigned to your city.
