Hey Chicago, if you’re reading this on Saturday afternoon, then you’re not at the special Music Box screening of Wes Anderson’s new film The Grand Budapest Hotel, complete with Anderson Q&A. Well, here’s another chance to see the movie early, but not in the presence of Anderson himself: We’ve got 50 admit-two passes to a screening on the evening of March 11 in Chicago. You just have to head here and enter the code AVC953. That’ll get you a pass good for two, but it is not a guarantee of admission, so arrive early! The film opens in Chicago on March 14. Trailer and synopsis are below.
“THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars; and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting; a raging battle for an enormous family fortune; a desperate chase on motorcycles, trains, sleds, and skis; and the sweetest confection of a love affair — all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.”
