The screening is coming up fast and we’ve got limited seats, so be sure to complete the form ASAP. If you snag a seat, we’ll confirm via e-mail by tomorrow and give you the theater information. But please note, it’s an overbooked first-come, first-served event, so you’ll want to get to the screening early regardless.
And just in case you can’t make it to our screening, Chappie isn’t all that far off. The film hits theaters nationwide on Friday, March 6th and also stars Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er, and Jose Pablo Cantillo.
Here’s the official synopsis for Chappie:
In the near future, crime is patrolled by an oppressive mechanized police force. But now, the people are fighting back. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. As powerful, destructive forces start to see Chappie as a danger to mankind and order, they will stop at nothing to maintain the status quo and ensure that Chappie is the last of his kind.
