See Pineapple Express Three Weeks Early!

This just in from Harry over at AICN - a chance to see PINEAPPLE EXPRESS Three months early with Danny McBriade, Seth Rogen, James Franco and David Gordon Green in person. Read below:

Hey folks, Harry here! AICN is doing a couple of screenings with the ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE that are just going to kick so much ass... you won't know what to do. This is the first one we get to announce and it's a biggie.

Last year, around this time we had an amazing advanced screening of SUPERBAD with Michael Cera, Jonah Hill and McLovin'. This year we've got the new David Gordon Green directed, Judd Apatow Produced... PINEAPPLE EXPRESS with SETH ROGEN, JAMES FRANCO and DANNY McBRIDE coming... oh and the incredibly talented - and not known for his Druggie Violent Comedies - DAVID GORDON GREEN!!!

That's right - all 4 of them at the Alamo Drafthouse South on May 3rd at 9:30pm - where if you're lucky enough to make it - you'll get in to see this film over 3 months early and then have a chance to make everyone you know envious beyond words. I've been dying to see this since I met a couple of readers of AICN last summer during the Rolling Roadshow BOOGIE NIGHTS screening in L.A. - who had seen PINEAPPLE EXPRESS at two different early test screenings. They raved about the film all night to me and got me incredibly fired up to see this film.

Now - here's the rub. I don't have a ton of tickets. Most of the tickets will be handed out somewhere around the University of Texas campus by the studio's secret agents - but I do have a few tickets - in the under 75 ticket variety. So here's how we're going to handle this.

Requests for tickets are for no more than 2 at a time. You plus one. Send an email to HK @ AintItCool dot Com with the subject line: Puffing Pineapple

In this email you'll need to send your name & the name of your guest - plus why you're perfect to see PINEAPPLE EXPRESS so early. Why are you perfect to see a violent pot smoking comedy crime thriller?

This screening is being brought to you by AIN'T IT COOL NEWS, FANTASTIC FEST & THE ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE - however it is open to everyone. If you can get there - and you want to go - write me and I'll publish the list of attendees.

This is going to be an awesome screening - I really wish I could have special sugar free herbed brownies for this screening... if only the theater could make such a thing. Shucks.
