The Fighter Screening & Boxing Art Event Free in LA on Saturday

If you live in Los Angeles and are interested in watching The Fighter, there's a fantastic event this weekend you definitely won't want to miss. Paramount is hosting an early screening of David O. Russell's boxing film The Fighter, which I've seen and is damn good, along with an "artistic celebration" at the &Still store down the street, with "limited edition screen prints, limited edition t-shirts and customized boxing gloves." To sign up, all you've got to do is visit here and RSVP. The screening is at 6PM on December 4th and the event after is called "Blood, Sweat and Art: An Artistic Celebration of 'Irish' Micky Ward." Info below!
The Fighter (watch the trailer) stars Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale as brothers and boxers Mickey Ward and Dickie Eklund. Here's more info on the event, courtesy of Gallery 1988 blog: "Join us on Saturday night, December 4th at 6PM at the Regent Theater at 614 N. La Brea for a free screening of the film, The Fighter, which tells the tale of Boston boxer Micky and the whispers for a Best Picture nomination are rather loud. Which is awesome… Then after the movie's screening, join us down the street at '&Still.' There will be beer, soda and snacks and it's 21 and over. So, keep that in mind." I'll be there, and if you see me, say something!
Are you going to be there Mr. Billington?
I wish I thought of that on Nov 30, 2010
I signed up and haven't gotten an email confirmation. Does that mean the spot is full already? I remembered I did the same thing for the AFI showing so I had to call the place and saved 4 tickets. I've seen the movie already and loved it. I'm planning on watching it again in theaters with my family and yes I will be buying tickets this time lol. I support this movie very much and have been a follower of this movie for a long time ever since Mark first mentioned the project is finally happening(no pun intended). Anyway I've been telling all of my friends to sign up because I've been talking about this movie before any trailers have been shown so I pumped it up for them. I'm very proud of this movie and everyone's dedicated work. I really hope to attend this screening. I love attending awesome events and seeing the crowds reaction of a movie. I hope I can make it!

Mark, this was also a great project for you. Maybe you should sit down for a few months or a year and really cherish the memories of such a fine production and let somebody else take care of that whole "Uncharted" foolishness. Sit, sit.

What a great night. The film was very enjoyable. Bale was excellent, he will surely receive an Oscar nomination for his role. The after party was very cool too. Free beer and I had a chance to meet the director and Amy Adams (she was a sweet heart). What a great night.
