Father’s Day Giveaway: See FIELD OF DREAMS on the Big Screen with FREE Tickets!

Field of Dreams ticket giveaway

Coming up with Father’s Day gift ideas gets more challenging every year, but here’s what most dads want: quality time with their kids, a shared experience, to create a memory. Seeing Field of Dreams on the big screen makes for a perfect Father’s Day outing, and a special opportunity for dads to introduce a new generation of sons and daughters to a film that, pretty much, all dads love. What makes the day even more special? When you WON tickets! That’s right, we’re giving away FIVE PAIRS OF TICKETS!

Field of Dreams returns to theaters for two days to celebrate its 30th anniversary, which is also near the 100th anniversary of the infamous 1919 Chicago “Black Sox” World Series scandal that is so pivotal to the film, stirring Ray’s desire to set right the wrongs of the past.

On Sunday, June 16 (Father’s Day), at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., and Tuesday, June 18, at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. (local times), more than 600 theaters will screen the Kevin Costner classic. It’s all a part of the TCM Big Screen Classics series and TCM’s Ben Mankiewicz will provide insights before and after the film. Of course, you can get tickets at the theaters, the Fathom Events website, or RIGHT HERE BY WINNING A PAIR!

To enter, Follow Us and/or ReTweet/Repost at @80sMovieGuide (no limit on entries) on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Leave us a message about why you love or want to see Field of Dreams! Five winners will be selected to win a pair of tickets good at the AMC or Regal Theater of their choice and on the date and time of their choosing (subject to availability) on June 10.

Get Free Tickets to NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD 50th Anniversary Screening!

50th anniversary night of the living dead

UPDATE: Winners have been picked! Congrats to Jason R., David W., Bradshaw D., David, and Instagram winner Changomania!

 

George Romero’s zombie classic Night of the Living Dead is celebrating its 50th Anniversary! Largely considered one of the best horror films ever made, Fathom Events is presenting the newly restored and remastered version in 600 movie theaters with screenings on Tuesday, October 24, and Wednesday, October 25.

The Fathom Events presentation also features a new behind-the-scenes look at the making of this groundbreaking film, which ushered in a completely new approach to making horror films.  For years, audience have only been able to see Night of the Living Dead in washed-out, murky versions; this is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to see the newly restored version on the big screen. 

This will likely sell out. But, ’80s Movie Guide is giving away FIVE PAIRS OF TICKETS! All you have to do is FOLLOW and/or LIKE one of our social media accounts (@80sMovieGuide on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook).  You get one entry for every action you take – for instance, if you leave a comment, you get an extra entry. If you repost or retweet, you get an extra entry. Just make sure we know you want the tickets!

The FIVE winners (two tickets each) will be picked at random on Tuesday, Oct. 16. Winners will then be notified by the social media account they connected with (we will need to get name, email, and your choice of theater and time). Names of the winners will also be listed here in an update. Any unclaimed prizes will go to the entrants who seem like they want the tickets the most through their entries.

Entrants/winners can see a full list of participating theaters at this link –  just enter a ZIP code to see theaters near you that are playing the film.

PS – Night of the Living Dead was released in 1968, but we believe ’80s movie fans share a love for this horror classic! Enter now!

The Transformers: The Movie has captured a special place in the hearts of millions and has been a staple in the pop culture zeitgeist since 1986. Featuring memorable characters from the heroic Autobots and villainous Decepticons, this full-length animated adventure boasts the voice talent of Orson Welles in his final voice acting role (!) and an all-star voice cast that includes Peter Cullen, Eric Idle, Casey Kasem, Judd Nelson, Leonard Nimoy, Robert Stack and Frank Welker.

In The Transformers: The Movie, the Autobots, led by the heroic Optimus Prime, prepare to make a daring attempt to retake their planet from the evil forces of Megatron and the Decepticons. Unknown to both sides, a menacing force is heading their way – Unicron. The only hope of stopping Unicron lies within the Matrix of Leadership and the Autobot who can rise up and use its power to light their darkest hour.  Will the Autobots be able to save their native planet from destruction or will the Decepticons reign supreme?
